25* Interleague GAME OF THE YEAR on Los Angeles Angels -142
LA Angels vs. Colorado,
06/08/2012 20:40 EDT,
Score: 7 - 2
Money Line: -142 LA Angels
The Los Angeles Angeles represent my strongest release in interleague action for the entire 2012 season Friday. They have a huge edge on the mound with C.J. Wilson over Alex White, plus they are playing their best baseball of the season recently.
The Angels are 11-4 over their last 15 games. The Colorado Rockies were playing pretty well too before going ice-cold at the plate in their last two contests. Colorado only managed to score a combined one run over their last two games at hitter-friendly Arizona, getting outscored 16-1 in the process.
Wilson has been worth every penny of his contract thus far. The left-hander is 6-4 with a 2.54 ERA and 1.127 ERA in 12 starts this season. Wilson has been untouchable of late, going 2-0 with a 0.45 ERA and 0.750 WHIP over his last three starts while allowing just one earned run in 20 innings.
Alex White is no match for Wilson in this one. The right-hander is 2-3 with a 5.60 ERA and 1.416 WHIP in six starts this season. He has posted a 6.11 ERA and 1.528 WHIP over his last three starts while allowing 12 earned runs and 27 base runners over 17 2/3 innings.
Wilson is 17-4 against the money line as a favorite of -125 to -175 over the last 2 seasons. Wilson is 16-4 against the money line in road games when playing against a team with a losing record over the last 3 seasons.
The Angels are 6-0 in their last 6 road games, 5-0 in their last 5 road games vs. a right-handed starter, and 5-0 in their last 5 as a road favorite. The Rockies are 0-5 in their last 5 vs. AL West opponents, and 0-4 in their last 4 interleague games. These five trends make for a perfect 25-0 system backing Los Angeles. Bet the Angels Friday.
