Los Angeles Angels vs New York Yankees Predictions and Picks
There are a few factors working against one another here. On the one hand, betting the over in Angels games has been money for three weeks. But with Ohtani on the mound and New York’s offense struggling prior to last night it doesn’t feel like runs will come pouring in. And the Yankees are the better team — but not right now and not with Ohtani on the mound. We will go over and Angels moneyline.

Oh Me, Oh My, Ohtani
This very well might be the closest we ever get to seeing Babe Ruth being back in Yankee Stadium so let’s all just take a nice, long, gaze and enjoy what we’re seeing.
Shohei Ohtani has been otherworldly this season — pitching at an above-average level and serving as one of the best hitters in the game.
On Wednesday, he will do both and do so in front of what’s sure to be a sold out crowd at Yankee Stadium. Let’s start with what Ohtani the pitcher has done. The 26-year-old from Japan has been fantastic, posting a 2.58 ERA, 1.18 WHIP with a 3-1 record in 11 starts while striking out 82 in 59.1 innings pitched.
And he’s somehow been even better in his four starts in June — going 2-0 with a 2.35 ERA. He hasn’t given up more than three runs in a start since April.
That’s not to mention his hitting ability. The switch-hitting, homerun mashing superstar has a respectable .276 average but it’s his power numbers and run-production that’s really eye popping.
Ohtani leads all of baseball with 28 home runs and is third with 63 RBIs and a 1.049 OPS. Ohtani has already done damage in this series, too, going yard on Monday night and twice again last night.
Ohtani is hitting .318 with five home runs and nine RBIs in the last week.
What is Going On in New York?
Aaron Boone finally admitted it. Nobody can quite figure out what the hell is going on in New York. Oh sure, there are theories — maybe they’re too home run dependent, maybe it’s poor roster construction, maybe Boone isn’t the right man for the job.
But whatever it is he and General Manager Brian Cashman both have pointed out how dire the straits are in the Bronx right now. Boone said “our season is on the line” earlier this week and yesterday Cashman said “we suck right now”.
And, well, it’s true. Since reaching a season-high mark of nine games above .500 (28-19) back on May 23, the Yankees are 13-19, have actually been out-scored overall this season and are six games back in the Wild Card race and seven-and-a-half in the division.
However, the offense clearly came to life last night scoring 11 runs — the most in a game all season — so we will see if that turns things around.
They will see if Domingo German can be the man to turn it around on the mound. German is 4-5 overall with a 4.32 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 66 strikeouts in 73 innings.
X-Factors to Watch on Both Sides
The man we’re keeping an eye on for Los Angeles is one of the most underwhelming players on the team this year in Anthony Rendon. The star on the Nationals’ 2019 World Series team is hitting just .230 with a paltry .673 OPS, with just five home runs and 33 RBIs.
He has battled injuries this year — playing just 54 games to date — but if he doesn’t turn it around now that Mike Trout is on the 60-day DL, the Angels can kiss their season goodbye.
For New York, we’re looking at DJ LeMahieu to keep it going — the only Yankee who seems to be on a roll right now. LeMahieu is hitting .400 the last week (12-for-30) with two home runs, six RBIs and a 1.055 OPS.
