Betting Angels Yankees – Angels Look To Get On Track In New York This Weekend

Posted by Dale “Skip” Lalonde on 4/13/2012 5:23:58 PM

The Los Angeles Angels were the big winners in free agency this past baseball betting offseason, landing two of the biggest names on the open market in Albert Pujols and CJ Wison, and solidifying an already talented and deep opening day roster. Everybody knows what Pujols is capable of after an incredible World Series run, but after watching Wilson in spring training and against the Minnesota Twins in his season opener, he may be the most underrated signing from this past winter. Despite expectations, the Angels won just two of their first six games to open the regular season, and if they are going to get back to .500 it will require two wins on the road at Yankees Stadium.

New York opened the season by splitting their first two sports betting series’ at home to reach 3-3, and while the cold weather may have played a role in their slow start, it won’t be any excuse as far as the media there is concerned in this series. That’s because with all of the moves that the Angels made this past offseason this three-game set will be magnified more than the first two, and considered an early test for two legitimate AL contenders. Wilson will get the nod for Los Angeles after pitching seven strong innings in a 5-1 win over the Twins, allowing just one earned run while striking out five. Wilson has his share of critics for failing to dominate on the biggest stage as the Rangers’ ace the past couple of seasons, but he is playing like a man possessed so far in his Angels’ uniform despite that it is still early. The Yankees will counter with Phil Hughes, who didn’t inspire much confidence after using 99 pitches in just 4.2 innings of work against the Tampa Bay Rays in a 3-0 loss.

The Yankees opted not to pursue Wilson in the sportsbook offseason the way that Los Angeles did, deciding instead to bank on the health and development of both Ivan Nova and Phil Hughes as quality starters. While the jury is still out on Hughes, Nova looked very good in his season debut, and has all of the tools to be New York’s No. 2 man behind CC Sabathia. Nova allowed just two earned runs over seven innings of work while striking out seven in a 6-2 win over the Baltimore Orioles, the type of performance that New York manager Joe Girardi would love to see from him on a consistent basis this year. Los Angeles will counter with Jerome Williams in its No. 5 spot, and will have to find a way to get some runs on the board to help him out after the 30-year old beat out Garrett Richards and Brad Mills for the starting job.
