15* Angels/Mariners AL Late-Night BAILOUT on Los Angeles -121
LA Angels vs. Seattle,

Score: 6 - 4
Money Line: -121 LA Angels
The Los Angeles Angels are finally starting to play up to their potential, and I'm going to continue to ride them while they're feeling good about themselves. The Angels have won three straight, outscoring the opposition 11-1 in the process. I expect win No. 4 in a row to come tonight.
Ervin Santana will have extra motivation to try and shut down Seattle after watching C.J. Wilson, Jered Weaver and Dan Haren each throw gems en route to this 3-game winning streak. He has pitched well of late, going 2-0 with a 1.71 ERA and 1.143 WHIP over his last three starts.
Blake Beavan is just 2-4 with a 4.46 ERA and 1.323 WHIP in eight starts this season. He's no match for Santana, who has thrived in recent visits to Safeco Field, where he's given up two runs or fewer in seven of his last nine outings. He hasn't allowed more than three in any of his last nine outings against Seattle.
The Angels are 5-1 in their last 6 games vs. a right-handed starter. The Mariners are 33-67 in their last 100 games as an underdog. Seattle is 25-51 in their last 76 games following a loss. Los Angeles is 37-16 in their last 53 meetings with Seattle. Take the Angels Friday.
