Los Angeles has won three of its last four games, including a 13-1 victory over New York as +110 road underdogs Friday, while going OVER the betting total in three consecutive contests.  The Angels have clubbed an MLB-best 35 home runs to set a franchise record for March and April, with first baseman Albert Pujols leading the charge with nine roundtrippers.  Los Angeles is 4-2 as road underdogs of +100 to +125 this season, with the OVER going 5-1 in that situation.

Angels starting pitcher Hector Santiago (0-3, 3.68 ERA) has yet to earn a decision this season due to receiving just eight runs of support, including a 2-1 road defeat to the Detroit Tigers last time out.  The left-hander is 0-2 with a 3.60 ERA in two road outings this season, with opposing hitters batting just .189 against him.  In three career games (one start) versus the Yankees, Santiago has tallied a 1-0 record and 7.45 ERA.

New York has alternated wins and losses over its last four contests, while the OVER has gone 3-1 in that span.  The Yankees will likely be led by outfielder Alfonso Soriano offensively, who is 3 for 7 with two home runs versus Santiago.  The franchise has gone 15-8 versus the Angels at the current Yankee Stadium, while it has recorded five straight non-losing season series.  New York is 3-2 at home with a money line of -100 to -125, with the OVER going 3-2 in those five opportunities.

Yankees starting pitcher Vidal Nuno (0-0, 6.75 ERA) will make his second start and fifth appearance of the 2014 campaign, as he didn’t earn a decision against the Tampa Bay Rays last time out—tossing five shutout innings and surrendering just three hits.  Nuno has never faced the Angels as a professional.

Sports bettors will likely back the Yankees due to their 22-8 mark in their last 30 games as home favorites.
