MLB Betting – Yankees, Angels Square Off In the Bronx

Yankees vs. Angels odds to winThose betting on college football will always be wary of a West Coast team going to the East, and vice versa, and in Major League Baseball, it’s the same story as the Los Angeles Angels will head to New York to battle the Yankees.  Their starting pitcher is very familiar with the Bronx Bombers.

Angels Yankees Betting – Tuesday, July 20, 7:05 PM ET

Scott Kazmir (7-9, 6.92) is coming off the disabled list with a sore shoulder, and he’s lost his last four starts, so it’s not even certain for sure if he’ll be ready for this game.  He was left in the game far too long in a 15-1 loss at Oakland as Kazmir was tagged for 13 runs on 11 hits, walking three batters and striking out a pair.  It was also the second straight outing that he had given up three homers, so maybe it’s for the best that he sit this one out.  Kazmir is 7-6 in 17 games against the Yankees, and most of these outings came when he was in Tampa Bay.  Most NFL football betting players would like to see their team keep their quarterback out if he’s hurt, and the Angels could replace him with youngster Sean O’Sulliva.

Phil Hughes (11-2, 3.65) is making his first start of the second half, and he had some good stuff in a 6-1 win at Seattle, allowing a run on six hits over seven innings.  Hughes struck out five and didn’t walk a single batter, and the 24-year-old is showing why the Yankees were adamant not to include him in trade talks over Roy Halladay and Cliff Lee last season.  Hughes has faced the Angels five times, including two starts, and he’s 3-0 with a 4.70 ERA, along with a pair of blown saves.

The Yankees will be favored at home by MLB betting odds, regardless of who is on the hill for the Angels, who have dropped eight of their last 10 in New York, including two of three in April. Kazmir has the experience, but not the arm. O’Sullivan has the arm, but this would be his first major-league start: in the new Yankee Stadium, against the best team in baseball and defending World Series champions.  Can anyone say, “pressure”?  Hughes has been a beast at Yankee Stadium in 2010, going 6-1 in nine starts with a 4.72 ERA, and he’s well rested.  The Angels won three of four at home against Seattle, but heading east to New York is a different ballgame, literally and figuratively.  The Yankees are coming off a series win over Tampa Bay in a battle of the best teams in baseball, and they’ll roll over the Angels on Tuesday.

Baseball betting pick: New York Yankees
