MLBs top team the Yankees, host the Angels tonight with the first pitch set for 7:05 pm et. Nestor Cortes (4-1, 1.70 ERA) takes the mound for New York, and Reid Detmers (2-2, 4.65 ERA) gets the call for Los Angeles. See all the Yankees vs Angels odds and my prediction for the game below.
Yankees vs Angels Odds, Pick, and Prediction
New York took the first of this three-game set 9-1 with some brilliant pitching by Jordan Montgomery and an offense that saw contributions from everyone. LA has now lost a season-worst, six consecutive games, and is now five games back of Houston in the AL West.

Yankees vs Angels Prediction & Pick
The Yankees have baseball’s best record at 34-15 and although the offense has been good, it’s their pitching leading the way. They rank 1st allowing just 3.06 runs/gm. They have the league’s 3rd best team ERA at 2.91. And today they send their best starter to the mound in Nestor Cortes who has MLB’s 2nd best ERA, 3rd best whip, 9th most strikeouts/9 and tied for the 5th best WAR among all pitchers. Reid Detmers for the Angels has his no-no but has allowed 3+ runs in both starts since, and in three of his last four outings. The money line is a little short for me but getting plus money on the Yanks to hit the Run Line is enough to elicit a wager. Oh, and, New York has won four of Cortes’ last six starts by 2 or more runs.
Pick: Yankees -1.5 (+115, Caesars Sportsbook)
