New York Yankees vs. L.A. Angels

MLB: Thursday, April 25, 2019 at 9:07 PM EST

Even though the Yankees have two-thirds of their Opening Day starting lineup on the IL they have turned things around and started to win. After a slow start, New York has recently won five in a row and they took the first two games of this AL series with the Angels. Some bench players are getting it done at the dish and the pitching has been solid. The Yankees rank in the top 10 in the Majors in both runs scored and team ERA and they are in 2nd place in the AL East a couple of games back of the surprising Tampa Bay Rays.

While the Yankees are surging the Angels are reeling, as they recently lost two straight and eight of their last nine games. The lineup has been up and down and the pitching has struggled and the Halos don’t rank in the top 20 in the Majors in team ERA.

The Yankees have won their last five games facing the Angels in La La Land.

Finally giving Tanaka some help

In this Game 4 for the Yankees Masahiro Tanaka (2-1 2.76 ERA) gets the nod and in his last outing the lineup finally helped him out. In his last start, he only gave up one run on four hits in seven innings in a 9-2 win over the Kansas City Royals. His start previous to that was his worst of the season giving up five runs in a loss. Before his last start, New York had lost his previous three outings wherein two of them he only gave up one run, but in those three outings the lineup only gave him six runs of support. The Yankees have won Masahiro’s last six starts facing the Angels and they have won 16 of his last 21 road starts against a team with a losing record.

Luke Volt is one of the guys not on the IL and while only hitting .235 he leads the team in HR and RBI and he had three HR in the first two games of this series.

New York has won its last five games facing a right-hand starter.

Cahill looks to settle down

After two solid starts for the Angels Game 4 starter Trevor Cahill (1-2 5.47 ERA) has had two straight subpar outings. L.A. has lost his last two starts where he has totaled eight 1/3 innings and gave up nine runs and in his last outing he gave up five runs on six hits in four 1/3 innings in a 6-5 loss to the Seattle Mariners. Cahill has had issues keeping the ball in the park, as he has given up five HR in his last two starts. This is his first start for the Yankees and on the season the Angels have only won one of his five starts.

Big shock that Mike Trout leads the Halos in batting average, HR, and RBI. The team has seven players that have double digits in RBI and the team has lost seven of their last eight games facing a team with a winning record.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

Not a tough call in this one, as the Yankees are surging and the Angels are reeling and New York has Tanaka on the hill. The team has won his last five starts against L.A. and that trend will continue and he will have a 2nd straight solid start. On the other side of the coin Cahill sill struggle for a 3rd straight outing. New York will take this series finale and take the series as well sending the Halos to another loss.

Prediction: PICK: Yankees

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

In Tanaka’s last six starts facing the Angels the total has gone Under and look for that trend to continue. He will be sharp in this game and stifle the L.A. lineup and while Cahill will not be sharp he will not get totally lit up. This game will not be a high scoring one, especially with Tanaka having a great outing so the Under is the pick.

Prediction: PICK: Under

I dig every sport and the NFL is my favorite. My team is the Redskins and my 2nd favorite is whoever is playing the Cowboys! I am a great handicapper and if you don’t believe me just ask. I don’t just write about betting on games I actually bet on them and I have done well, which is why it is a good idea to follow my picks.
