Angels vs Yankees Prediction and Line ALCS Game 1

The Los Angeles Angels head to New York for game 1 of the American League Championship Series against the Yankees tonight (October 16th).  Both teams will most likely be battling the weather in game 1 of the ALCS, as the forecast calls for some rain, 40 degree temperature and 15-20 mph winds.  The Los Angeles Angels swept the AL Wild Card Boston Red Sox to advance to the ALCS, while the Yankees swept the Minnesota Twins to reach the ACLS for their first time in five years.  The Angels are the only AL team to have a winning record against the Yankees since 1996, where they have gone 73-63 against the bronx bombers.  The Angels will be starting John Lackey on the mound who went 11-8 in the regular season with a 3.83 ERA, and is 1-0 so far this post season allowing zero earned runs in 7 and one thirds inning work.  Yankees send their ace CC Sabathia to the mound for the ALCS game 1.  Sabathia went 19-8 during the season with a a 3.37 ERA, and is 1-0 this postseason giving up 8 hits and 1 earned run in 6.2 innings work against the Twins.  Tonights Angels vs Yankees match up should be a good one between two pitchers that are making $10 million + this season – the game is scheduled to start at 7:57 PM EST.  Below you will find the betting lines, trends, and predictions for game 1 of the Angels vs Yankees ALCS. – Bet on MLB playoffs online at 5dimes.  5dimes is the best online sportsbook out there, with plenty of deposit options (including credit cards), and very fast payouts of your winnings.  You will receive up to $200 free if you sign up today ->

Angels vs Yankees Predictions:

Final Score Prediction – Yankees 4 Angels 3

Run Line Prediction – I am going with the run line in tonight’s Angels vs Yankees game.  Bet on ANGELS +1.5 on the run line at -140.  John Lackey is too good of a pitcher to allow many runs, even against this powerful hitting Yankees line up.  Lackey only gave up 4 hits and 1 walk to the Red Sox in his last start through 7 and a third.  Factor in the weather conditions for tonight’s game and we could be looking at a low scoring one run ball game.  Lay it down on the Angels on the run line.

Over/Under – Throw down on the UNDER 8.5 total runs.  I was actually surprised to see the over/under sitting at 8.5 runs in this Angels vs Yankees ALCS game, especially after last nights PHI/LAD game was at 7.5.  With two top AL pitchers, Lackey and CC Sabathia, on the mound and bad weather in the forecast I can’t see it being a high scoring game tonight.  Bet UNDER 8.5 at
