New York Yankees vs Los Angeles Angels: MLB Predictions and Betting Advice
For New York Yankees fans, the Yankees vs. Angels game on July 1 (or the Angels game as they are still both called in this series) is a high-stakes battle between two team that have both made their first playoff appearance in 14 years and have played a total of 100 games to this point. The Angels got the win last night (3-2, 5. 3 games) with Adam Eaton taking the mound to start for new teammate Ryan Madson.
Since their first playoff appearance, the last time the Yankees and Angels met, New York swept the series 2-1. In their only meeting of the season, the Yankees were victorious in a double-header in the Bronx last week.
I don’t believe the Yankees are taking anything away from the Angels though, who have put together their best season since the 1996 season. This team has had some issues on the mound this year which have given the Yankees some trouble, but the Angels have also had their issues as well.
In my forecast, the Yankees are favored by 1. 5 games (or 4. 5 points) to the Angels (or 4 points). I expect New York to win this game while I expect the Angels to lose.
Here’s my idea of the Yankees vs. Angels odds, predictions, matchups, lines and scores from last night’s game.

The New York Yankees vs. Los Angeles Angels: MLB Predictions and Betting Advice
The New York Yankees vs.
On July 1st, the New York Yankees and Los Angeles Angels will meet for their fourth game in front of a national television audience.
The New York Yankees hold a commanding 28 ½ – 2½ victory over the Los Angeles Angels in their regular season finale, and that lead they will try to defend until the end of the regular season before facing another team with a chance to challenge at the top of the AL East. The Yankees’ success during the regular season has been overwhelming, and the Yankees have never finished worse than 10 games behind of the AL Wild Card, but they have been a different team during the postseason than in the regular season.
When they have faced the Los Angeles Angels, they have faced a much different team. The reigning AL West champions, the Angels, have finished last in the AL West twice before, and this season they won only 11 of their 37 regular season games. They will look to get back to the number one seed this time around, and they have an ace that could pose a challenge for the Yankees.
Alex Rodriguez is a key member of the Angels. 292 average and seven home runs, Rodriguez is one of the best position players in the majors right now.
Which side of the money line has all the value?
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim are one of the oldest clubs in baseball. Despite being a farmclub of the Yankees for most of their history, the Yankees have historically been favored to finish first and second in the American League East. In general, the Yankees have had a solid record of winning both the World Series and the League Championship Series from 1992 until 2010, with consecutive championships being the only blemishes on the Yankees’ record.
This past season, the Yankees won the Fall Classic to clinch the American League Championship. This is the first ever Championship in both the West Division and the East Division.
