20* AL Wednesday No-Doubt Rout on Los Angeles Angels -118
LA Angels vs. Boston,
08/22/2012 19:10 EDT,
Score: 7 - 3
Money Line: -118 LA Angels
The Los Angeles Angels are showing solid value as a small road favorite over the hapless Boston Red Sox. Los Angeles is still within striking distance of an AL Wildcard berth, and it knows it has to make a move now. Boston (59-64) has clearly already packed it in.
The Angels send ace and AL Cy Young contender Jered Weaver to the mound tonight. The right-hander is 15-3 with a 2.74 ERA and 0.972 WHIP over 22 starts this season. He'll be motivated after his worst start of the year against Tampa Bay last time out, and I look for him to shut down the Red Sox.
The Angels are 8-0 in their last 8 road games vs. a team with a losing record. Los Angeles is 7-0 in its last 7 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. The Angels are 8-0 in Weaver's last 8 starts following an outing of less than 4 innings in his last appearance. Los Angeles is 7-0 in Weaver's last 7 road starts. These four trends combine for a perfect 30-0 system backing the Angels. Bet Los Angeles Wednesday.
