The Los Angeles Angels travel to New York to open a three-game set against the Yankees. This series will be, as the kids say, “hype.”
The Angels have been struggling lately, as they’re 3-7 in their last 10 games and just dropped a home series against the Toronto Blue Jays.
The Yankees are 5-5 over their last 10 games, and they’re coming off a four-game series split in Tampa against the second-place Rays.
Noah Syndergaard and Jordan Montgomery square off in a battle of solid pitchers.
Angels Miss Rendon Greatly
The Angels are in a little bit of a funk at the moment. Some of that has to do with the absence of Anthony Rendon, but it has more to do with the fact that they’re the victims of the regular ups and downs of a long season.
Rendon’s presence seems to have an undeniable impact on the Angels, though. They’re 25-15 in games where Rendon starts and 2-7 without him.
While the current data mostly includes Rendon’s added numbers, the Angels own the ninth-best team wRC+ on the road against LHP in May.
Heading into Yankee Stadium, there may be some added juice in the dugout as the Angels look to get back on track.
Syndergaard gets the start for Los Angeles. While his 5.93 road ERA terrifies me, his 3.58 road FIP is solid.
Additionally, the Angels’ bullpen has been terrifying (in a bad way) over the past couple of weeks.
Yankees Cruising in AL
Speaking of terrifying, the Yankees seem like the cream of the crop in the American League.
However, they have a pretty pedestrian home offense against RHP. On the season, they have a 105 team wRC+ at home, which is only 13th in MLB.
Over the past three weeks, they have a 69 team wRC+ at home against RHP, which is 28th in MLB.
Montgomery gets the start and he’s been … fine. He has a 3.86 ERA and a 3.99 FIP at home this season.
The Yankees’ hype makes them justifiable favorites in most instances, but it creates situations where you can get a team like the Angels — who are 12-9 on the road — in plus money.
The Angels opened at +110 and will probably stay in that range, as the market flocks to the team that is playing excellent baseball and has the brand recognition.
However, don’t turn your nose at good value. Take the Angels moneyline and sweat it out.
Pick: Angels ML +110
