The Los Angeles Angels and New York Yankees get set for game 2 of their American League Divisional Series tonight (October 17th 2009). The two teams won’t get much rest after playing game 1 of the ALCS last night, in which the Yankees won 4-1 to take a 1-0 series lead in the best of seven. CC Sabathia lead the Yankees to the win allowing only 1 run on 4 hits through 8 innings. It was a cold one in New York last night, with the game time temperature at 45 degrees with a 17 mph wind making it feel even colder. Tonight’s weather doesn’t look any better for game 2 as heavy rains are in the forecast and temperatures sitting around 45 degrees at game time. Lefty Joe Saunders is being sent to the mound tonight for the Angels. Saunders was 16-7 with a 4.60 ERA through the regular season, and he has yet to pitch in these 2009 MLB playoffs. The New York Yankees send righty AJ Burnett to the mound in game 2 tonight. Burnett was 13-9 with a 4.04 ERA throughout the regular season, and pitched 6 innings allowing only 1 earned run for a no decision against the Twins in the ALDS. This Angels vs Yankees ALCS game 2 should be exciting as the Angels look to even the series – game time is scheduled for 7:57 PM EST. Below we have a betting preview and our predictions listed for the game, enjoy.

Angels vs Yankees ALCS Game 2 Predictions:
Final Score Prediction – Angels 4 Yankees 3
Money Line Prediction – Throw down on the ANGELS TO WIN tonight at +168 odds. You can’t go wrong with these odds considering the pitching match up between Joe Saunders and AJ Burnett. Burnett has been off and on this season and could easily give up some runs to this good hitting Angels lineup. In his two starts against the Angels this year he has allowed six runs in 12 innings. Mix in the bad weather scheduled for tonight’s game and we could see the Angels evening the series. Take these great odds and bet the Angels to win at Bodog.com.
Over Under Prediction – I’m liking the UNDER 8.5 total runs again in tonight’s Angels vs Yankees ALCS game two. If both pitchers have their stuff tonight it could be a low scoring game. Lay it down on the Under 8.5 tonight – a $100 bet pays out $190 at Bodog.com.
