For the Yankees, they will be sending out Domingo German who will make his fourth start of the season. He started off in the season with three straight wins however, took his first loss of the season recently. He allowed three earned runs over six innings in a loss to the Royals last Thursday.
It could be a very long season for the Los Angeles Angels especially if the AL West continues to be one of the toughest divisions in the league. At the moment, the Angels come into this game with an overall record of 9-13, but are dead last in the standings. There are three teams in the division who have a winning percentage of over .600. For the Angels their problem this season has been pitching as they usually are out of the count by the 5th inning.

For the Angels, they will be sending out Chris Stratton on the mound who has yet to win a game this season. In his most recent start he allowed four in the second inning against the Mariners on Thursday. Even though he finished the game with five innings, he allowed six runs.
- Angels are 1-6 in their last 7 games on grass.
- Angels are 0-4 in their last 4 vs. American League East.
- Yankees are 5-1 in their last 6 overall.
- Yankees are 5-1 in their last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter.
The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.
Full-Game Side Bet
This is going to be a home game for the Yankees. New York fans travel well and take over the stadium. With that in mind as well as the Angels pitching still one of the worse in the leagues, have to lean with the Yankees hot bats. The Yankees are 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
Prediction: YANKEES RL
Full-Game Total Pick
Even though the trends and pitching mistakes of the Angels might want you to select the Over, this line is way too high. Never bet on the team, always the number. I’m taking the Under as it is 19-7-1 in the last 27 meetings in Los Angeles.
