Monday's MLB Free Pick ---Los Angeles Angels -125---

Cleveland vs. LA Angels, 08/19/2013 22:05
Money Line: -125 LA Angels

Monday's MLB Free Pick ---Los Angeles Angels -125---

Both the Angels and Indians aren't playing very good baseball right now. Each is just 4-9 over their last 13 games overall. However, there is a lot of value here on the Angels at home with their ace Jered Weaver on the mound. While Weaver is coming off a poor start at New York, he's been lights out at home this season, going 6-2 with a 2.25 ERA and 1.083 WHIP over 9 starts. You have to like his chances of following that trend given he's 7-2 with a 2.86 ERA over 15 career starts vs the Indians. Cleveland will counter with Danny Salazar, who will be making just his fourth career start. Salazar is 1-1 with a 4.07 ERA overall and 0-1 with a 6.75 ERA and 1.500 WHIP in his only start on the road.

Weaver is a dominant 31-11 over his last 42 starts in the second half of the season, 20-4 over his last 24 at home and 29-9 over his last 38 as a favorite of -110 or higher. BET THE ANGELS!
