Yankees-Angels Set for A Baseball Betting Online Faceoff
Posted by: Mike Davis
As we approach the MLB trade deadline, the latest trade rumors begin to swarm all the baseball betting online headlines. However, the seemingly endless onslaught that Sunday’s action delivered stole the limelight this past weekend.
Sunday’s 15-game lineup delivered some pretty entertaining matchups. From the Oakland Athletics and Tampa Bay Rays matchup early in the day, to the Cincinnati Reds and Los Angeles Dodgers contentious match later on in the evening, there was highly competitive Major League Baseball action all day long.
Likewise, there were some hefty blowouts. The New York Yankees pummeled the Boston Orioles 14-3 and the Arizona Diamondbacks bullied the Milwaukee Brewers 11-1. The Twins-Giants matchup and the Angels-Astros contest were also pretty lopsided, with San Francisco beating Minnesota 13-8 and Los Angeles beating Houston by six, 12-6.
Players who bet on MLB this Monday will 9 contests to choose from. However, accounting for Sunday’s blowout results, bettors might want to keep an eye out for the Yankees-Angels pairing. Both teams are coming off a great offensive showing, which gives this matchup even more allure. The AL East standings peg the Yankees as favorites; let’s see who the MLB sports odds are siding with.
New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels – Monday, June 12th
When: 10:07 pm ET
Where: Angel Stadium, Anaheim
Series: Game 1 of 3-Game Series
TV: Local Broadcasts
Stream: MLB TV
MLB Sports Odds:
New York Yankees -1 ½ (+125) 8 ½ (-110) -133
Los Angeles Angels +1 ½ (-145) 8 ½ (-110) +123
New York Yankees
The Yankees come into this contest with a 37-23 record that ranks 1st in the AL East and 2nd overall in the American League. New York currently owns a 4 game lead over 2nd place and longtime rival Boston. The Yanks have posted a 7-3 record so far in June and come into Monday’s game riding a 5-mattch win streak. New York hasn’t made a World Series appearance in 7 years, their longest drought in two decades.
To help break this baseball betting online drought, the Yankees will be sending Masahiro Tanaka to the mound. Tanaka is 5-6 on the season and has a 6.55 ERA. Tanaka’s numbers are less than impressive, especially when considering he’s posted a 9.00 ERA in the last seven days.
Los Angeles Angels
The Angels enter this matchup with a 33-33 record that ranks them 2nd in the AL West, 12-games behind the impressive Houston Astros. Los Angeles will be looking to build lead over 3rd place Seattle Monday evening, since the Mariners are just 2-games behind the Angels. The Halos have gone 2-years without making the playoffs. Reigning MVP Mike Trout and company are looking to put an end to that drought this season.
The Angels will be starting Alex Meyer against New York. Meyer is 2-3 on the season with a 4.08 ERA. The MLB sports odds are ruling against Meyer, but the 0.00 ERA Meyer has posted in his last 6 innings is a promise that Los Angeles could snap the Yankees win streak this evening.
