20* AL Friday No-Doubt Rout on Los Angeles Angels -135
LA Angels vs. Cleveland,
04/27/2012 19:05 EDT,
Score: 2 - 3
Money Line: -135 LA Angels
Rarely ever will you get Ace Jered Weaver at this good of a price. The Cleveland Indians are getting way too much respect from oddsmakers tonight because they are playing at home. Baseball is a sport where home-field advantage means very little.
Weaver has been one of the best starters in the game over the last few years, and he's off to a fast start this season. Weaver is 3-0 with a 2.43 ERA and 0.775 WHIP through four starts. Justin Masterson, his counterpart, is 0-2 with a 6.65 ERA and 1.615 WHIP through four starts.
After a slow start, which includes three straight losses, I believe the Angels are going to be highly motivated for a victory tonight. This is one of the best teams in the league, and time will tell.
The Angels are 42-16 in Weaver's last 58 starts as a favorite of -110 to -150. The Indians are 6-21 in their last 27 games as a home underdog, and 0-4 in Masterson's last 4 starts as an underdog. Bet the Angels Friday.
