The Los Angeles Angels are in unfamiliar territory, being all but mathematically eliminated from winning the AL West with the whole month of September yet to go. They attempt to avoid the embarrassment of being swept at the Big A by Baltimore.

The Halos will send their ace Jered Weaver to the mound, who’s off two mediocre starts, but is 5-2 with sparking 1.65 ERA in Anaheim. Weaver could use a few runs from his teammates who are batting just .257 as a team and are 11th in the AL in runs scored at home.

Nevertheless, favorites with a money line of -150 or more, hitting .265 or less against an AL starting pitcher with ERA 4.20 or less, whose starting pitcher strikes out five or more batters per start are 97-28 the past 13 seasons.

Free Plays on 10-5 roll and I had the right side with Jacksonville last night, taking me to 5-1 in NFL Top Plays and 9-3 in last dozen Best Bets. I’m 6-2 in my last eight MLB Top Plays so don’t hesitate to catch the action.
