The Yankees won the opener, 5-3, and are currently riding a six-game winning streak. The Angels had won three of four before falling on Monday night. The Yanks are killing this season, so it’s going to be a tough one for the Angels, even though they have the home field advantage. Here’s a look at the game.

Why should you bet on the Angels?

Before Monday’s loss, the Angels had put up 35 runs in the previous four games, a sign that their offense is not falling off the table despite the loss of star outfielder Mike Trout (thumb). Albert Pujols continues his home run streak past 600, and Eric Young Jr. drove in a career-best four runs in Sunday’s win over the Houston Astros. Michael Shoemaker takes the hill for Los Angeles, having pitched seven relatively solid innings his last time out against the Astros, permitting four runs on seven hits as the Angels took the win.

Why should you put your money on the Yankees?

Yankee slugger Aaron Judge is already earning comparisons to the Sultan of Swat, especially after his 496-foot home run a couple of days ago. HIs homer was the difference-maker in the Yankees’ win on Monday night. You just can’t give him any pitches out over the plate, or he will send it on a moon shot. The Yankees also have Michael Pineda on the mound. His last start went seven innings, as he scattered four hits and permitted just one earned run. Since May 5, he has posted a 4-2 record with a 3.56 ERA, with eight straight quality starts.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

These Yankees are red-hot right now and could soon surpass Houston for the best record in the American League. I see them getting all over Shoemaker in this one and winning, 5-2.
