MLB Picks: New York Yankees at LA Angels

I like this one because it’s such an interesting matchup here. The New York Yankees have been one of the streakiest teams in baseball, particularly since the loss of Jacoby Ellsbury. The Los Angeles Angels have been a picture of mediocrity this season, but consistently mediocre and you have to appreciate them for that as they float around .500 for the year.

This pitching matchup is interesting. An expensive relic of Yankees past waddles out onto the mound with his 5+ ERA to face CJ Wilson, a former top-tier pitcher who is having a pretty decent year. That said, while I don’t trust CC Sabathia, I see some underdog value in the New York Yankees here. They’ve been playing decent baseball and the computer sees this one as a coin flip.

If the Yankees don’t win, I like an over/under hedge with the over. I think Sabathia will eat up mediocre innings and if both teams hit this one could be a slug fest. The Yankees lineup is decent right now and the Angels could feast on the fat lefty. This could be a fun one, and the computer gives a 59% chance of hitting the over.

There’s value here, but this is not a system play. We’ll go very low confidence, non-forum, fun bet on this one and take the Yankees and the over.
