3 units on Los Angeles +122 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Not too often do you get a team on the verge of 100 wins against a team on the verge of 100 losses as a moderate-sized dog, but that's the case in this one. Most feel the Angels are just lying down and awaiting the playoffs, but there is some unfinished business at hand. The Rays sweep yesterday leaves them just behind the Angels for the all important home field advantage throughout the playoffs. Maybe it is the fact that Felix Hernandez toes the rubber tonight for the M's? Not good enough as the Angels have had no trouble solving King Felix serves this season. The Angels have 25 hits in 20.2 innings off Hernandez, and his ERA is at 4.79. It also hasn't helped the M's much as they have dropped his last four starts. I'll take the value on the Angels here.
