Moneyline favors Angels in battle with Dodgers
Los Angeles Angels vs Los Angeles Dodgers Odds
Los Angeles' pitching staff and batting order hope to create an unwelcoming environment in interleague play on Wednesday when the Los Angeles Angels pay a visit to Dodger Stadium.
It's a pitching duel between Nathan Eovaldi for the Dodgers (0-2 on the year) and C.J. Wilson for Los Angeles (7-4 so far).
If you're backing the visitors in this one, you'll find the Angels listed as favorites of 115 at most sportsbooks. Total bettors saw the number open in the area of 6.5, depending on the book.
The MLB Power Rankings show a disparity between these teams, with the Dodgers rated this week at No. 1 and the Angels sitting at No. 5.
How They Match Up:
The game also pits Los Angeles' No. 5-rated National League offense, averaging 4.4 runs per game, against a Angels defense that ranks No. 1 in the American League at 3.8 in runs allowed per game. The Dodgers have averaged 8.8 hits per game so far, almost the same as Angels batters have averaged on the year (8.8 hits per game).
Los Angeles owns the National League's No. 2 defense, allowing 3.5 men per game to cross the plate. That contrasts with Los Angeles' American League No. 1-rated defense.
