Angels favored vs Red Sox

The Los Angeles Angels look to emerge victorious in MLB odds action as the Red Sox arrive at Angel Stadium on Wednesday, but they face a team that performs much better against left handed pitching.

Zach Stewart gets the ball in front of a hostile crowd for the Red Sox on this day; he's 0-1 on the season. The Angels, meanwhile, will counter with lefty C.J. Wilson, who will be looking to improve on his 9-9 mark.

Boston is 25-16 against LHP in 2012, much better than their mark against righties.
