Baseball Betting: NEW YORK YANKEES at LOS ANGELES ANGELS (8/19)

BASEBALL — August 19

N.Y. YANKEES (Tanaka) at L.A. ANGELS (Weaver)
(Line: Yankees -150 / Angels +130, Total 8) – The Yankees may not be real contenders in the AL wild cardrace (they are six games out) but they don’t really believe that; at least all these kids they’re using right now don’t know enough to realize it. Here, the only guy to look at is Tanaka, who has a 2.52 ERA on the road, giving up just four homers in 71-1/3 innings pitched. He has walked only 4.4% of the batters he has faced, and there have been no walks on his part in his last three starts.
