These are two of the premier teams in the AL MLB odds over the past few years and they should put on quite a show in LA.
MLB odds makers have been friendly to both sides in recent times as the Angels have seemingly had a strangle hold on the AL West and the Sox, just several years removed from a MLB betting odds World Series win, have also been a regular fixture in the MLB odds post season. However, this year has been a bit of a wake up call for both teams as neither finds itself atop the MLB odds standings in the early going of the 2009 baseball betting odds season.
The Angels find themselves in very unfamiliar MLB odds territory as they sit in second place in the AL West -2 game behind the Texas Rangers of all teams. Likewise, the Sox are 6.5 games behind in the AL Central standings. Worse still, the Sox are just 2 games out of last place in a MLB odds division they used to dominate.
On paper the nod has to the Angels in this MLB betting odds match up. Despite the rocky start the Angels are still one of the premier teams in the MLB odds. And despite what many online betting fans might be saying at the moment, this team will around in October to contend in yet another MLB odds post season.
When comparing respective records the gap between the Angels and the Sox is even more evident than many MLB odds fans might realize. The sportsbook world is driven by numbers and the Angels are comfortably above .500 for the season whereas the Sox are six games below the .500 level. Hence, the Angels should be favored in this MLB odds match up not only because they’re playing at home, but because they’re simply a better team as their record thus far demonstrates.
The Angels starting pitching and hitting are both far superior to the Sox and that should be enough to carry them to a win in this MLB betting odds show down. The Sox’s best chance for MLB odds victory is to get an Angels starter low in the rotation and jump out to an early lead, pressuring the Angels bull pen.
