The New York Yankees will head out to Anaheim to start a three-game set with the Los Angeles Angels this Monday from Angel Stadium on BSW.

Yankees Betting Preview

New York moved to 50-44 after dropping two of three to Colorado. The Yankees came out of the break slow at Coors, and they’ve now dropped six of their last eight games.  The New York offense is scoring 3.87 runs per game, while batting .230, with a .298 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.87 ERA, with a 1.25 WHIP. Gleyber Torres has multiple hits in five straight games, and he’s leading NYY in hits (89), while posting a line of .259/13/39. Anthony Rizzo has collected a hit in four of the last five games, and he’s averaging splits of .257/11/39. Giancarlo Stanton homered twice in the Colorado series, and he’s up to eleven home runs and 29 RBI for the season. 

Lou Severino (1-4, 7.38 ERA, 34 Ks) will take the bump for New York. The eighth-year pitcher was a mess through nine starts in the first half of the season, and he allowed a combined sixteen earned runs over his last two outings against Baltimore and St. Louis. Severino has given up four runs or more in six of his past seven appearances, and it’s unclear whether things will turn around for him here in the second portion of the year. 

Angels Betting Preview 

Los Angeles moved to 46-48 after dropping two of three to Houston. The Angels did their best at home to keep up with the Astros, but they came up just short, which has grown to be a recurring theme in Anaheim. The LAA offense is scoring 4.16 runs per game, while batting .252, with a .331 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.33 ERA, with a 1.27 WHIP. Shohei Ohtani homered in the final two games versus Houston, and he leads the AL in home runs (34), with team-leads in hits (107), batting (.301) and RBI (73). Hunter Renfroe recorded multiple hits in the first two matchups against the Astros, and he’s posting splits of .250/15/42. Mike Trout and Brandon Drury remain glaring absences from the Angels lineup.

Griffin Canning (6-4, 4.62 ERA, 71 Ks) will get the call for Los Angeles. The fourth-year pitcher struggled in his Freeway Series start last time out against the Dodgers, only lasting 2.2 innings, and allowing four earned runs. Canning had a good month of June, and there’s hope he can get back on track here post All-Star break. 

New York vs Anaheim Trends

New York is 49-45 against the spread this season, with a 41-49-4 O/U record. LA Angels are 43-51 ATS this year, with a 45-42-7 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

The storylines unfolding in both clubhouses aren’t uplifting, and there’s a real chance that this may be the last stretch of baseball for Shohei Ohtani in Anaheim. The injuries have piled up and hindered the Halos’ lineup, but they receive the blessing of facing a struggling Lou Severino, who showed all types of vulnerability this season. After putting up such a good fight against Houston, this looks like a manageable spot for the hosts. Roll with the Angels for game one Monday night.
