Yankees on fire
The Yankees are on a six-game win streak right now following a four-game sweep of the Twins at home. New York is now 15-9 overall with a 4-4 record on the road. The Yankees are putting up 6.08 runs per game while allowing 4.62 per contest.
Luis Severino gets the start for the Yankees tonight. He is 4-1 through his five starts. He has a 2.32 ERA with a 0.90 WHIP. Over 31 innings of work, Severino has 34 strikeouts with 10 walks.
Angels take series at Houston
The Angels aren’t playing all that well lately, winning just three of their last nine. However, they are coming off a series win at Houston. Los Angeles is now 16-9 overall and 5-7 at home. The Angels are putting up 5.00 runs per game while giving up 4.36 per contest.
Andrew Heaney is getting his third start of the season today. Through two starts, he is 0-1 with a 9.64 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP. Over 9.1 innings of work, Heaney has 13 strikeouts with three walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Yankees have won 19 of Severino’s last 26 starts and 7 of his last 10 road starts. They also have won four straight series openers.
The Angels have dropped five of their last six at home and they have also lost seven of Heaney’s last nine starts.
This should be a good series, but tonight’s pitching matchup definitely favors the Yankees. It’s hard to see Heaney stopping this lineup while the Angels are likely to have a hard time with Severino, who is allowing less than a baserunner per inning. I give the edge to New York tonight.
The Pick: New York Yankees -165
