0 of 3

    The Los Angeles Angels and New York Yankees have gone above the betting total in eight of their last 11 meetings at Yankee Stadium. This is important to consider when making your MLB picks Monday, as the two teams open up a four-game series.

    Courtesy of SBR Forum, the Yankees are minus-155 home favorites in the pro baseball odds, with the total sitting at eight in the market.

    Let's take a closer look at this American League matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction along the way.

    The Los Angeles Angels are 3-7 in their last 10 road games, which includes a 6-5 setback to the Cleveland Indians as plus-169 underdogs Sunday.

New York Yankees

    The New York Yankees have alternated wins and losses over their last four games, as they come off a 5-4 walk-off victory over the powerful Detroit Tigers as plus-153 home underdogs Sunday.
