New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels Betting Analysis

The Yankees visit the Angels for the first of a three-game set on Monday, August 29th.

New York leads the American League East at 78-50, which includes a 33-30 record when playing away from Yankee Stadium. Los Angeles is in fourth place in the American League West with a record of 55-73 overall and 26-36 at home, which trails Houston by 15 games for the division lead.

New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels Betting Prediction

The Yankees send RHP Frankie Montas to the hill against Oakland’s 29th ranked scoring offense on Monday night (3.36 RSPG), who’s 4-10 with a 3.84 ERA in 23 starts this season (1.21 WHIP), which includes a 4-9 ledger and 3.18 WHIP across 19 starts for the A’s (1.14 WHIP); and a 0-1 record with a 7.32 ERA across his first four appearances for the Yankees (1.58 WHIP).

On the flip side, the Angels send LHP Jose Suarez to the mound against New York’s second-ranked scoring offense tonight (5.00 RSPG), who’s having a relatively pedestrian campaign sitting 4-6 with a 4.19 ERA in 16 appearances this season (1.34 WHIP), despite posting a miserable 1-4 record and 5.60 ERA across his first 11 outings of the season (1.58 WHIP).

I’ll back New York to cover here, as Suarez has tossed five innings or less and allowed three runs or more in four of his last seven starts for the Angels (3-4, 4.08 ERA); setting the stage for an unfavorable matchup against the Yankees and Montas, who’s 4-2 with a 2.30 ERA in 15 career appearances against the Angels (1.12 WHIP).

Score Prediction: Yankees 6, Angels 3
Best Bet: Yankees -1.5 (-110)
