The Los Angeles Angels will travel to Cleveland to face the Indians on Monday night. All MLB odds can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Indians are jockeying for position with the White Sox on top of the AL Central. They currently sit 1.5 games in back of the division leaders. Although the Indians pitching staff has been less than stellar all season they have come up with timely hits necessary to stay in the race. They will start Ubaldo Jimenez tonight who has lost two of his last three starts. The right-hander is pitching to a 4.69 ERA in 88 innings of work.
The Angels are on a roll and are playing a lot better than they did at the beginning of the season. They are 7-3 in the last 10 games and a big part of their turnaround has been due to the play of youngsters Mike Trout and Mark Trumbo who were both named All-Stars. Joining them on the All-Star team is Jered Weaver who will pitch tonight. He is 8-1 on the season with a stellar 2.31 ERA.
We actually like Weaver in the spot for obvious reasons, and think Jimenez will pitch well enough to keep this game under the total predicted for it at online sports books.
