New York Yankees vs Los Angeles Angels: Jose Suarez to Stop DJ LeMahieu in Our Monday MLB Prop Bet

New York Yankees vs Los Angeles Angels Predictions

Key Stat: Jose Suarez (4-6) plays well in August

Tip Reasoning

  • The Yankees are struggling to score runs lately
  • Jose Suarez has made five strikeouts in each one of his last 4 matches
  • Frankie Montas also throws well which should further motivate Suarez

The Los Angeles Angels are one of the biggest disappointments this season, but their downfall can easily be explained through all these injuries they had throughout the year. The team is currently 12th in the standings with 55 wins and 73 losses to their name, meaning that they will certainly miss out on the Playoffs. However, despite their overall lack of motivation, the Angels fought well against the Blue Jays and picked up an easy clean sweep at Rogers Center denying one of the Playoffs contenders. The Angels will rely on Jose Suarez (4-6) on Monday night as the 24-year-old Venezuelan has been averaging a 4.19 ERA and 1.34 WHIP.

The Yankees have shown immense struggles offensively which is quite understandable having in mind their fantastic form in the first half of the season. They picked up four straight wins last week, but were ousted by the OAK Athletics in their last two visits. Moreover, their hitters have underperformed in their last three matches which raises some concerns for them ahead of the Playoffs. We think that these issues will continue against the Angels as well and that’s why we will trust Jose Suarez to make six or more strikeouts for the night. Moreover, he will match-up with Frankie Montas who has been playing on a high level this year, despite his negative record. This will further motivate Suarez to show his A-level game on Monday.

Tip Reasoning

Key Stat: DJ LeMahieu has been struggling recently

  • Jose Suarez has improved his throws in August
  • DJ LeMahieu has score just one run in his last 14 appearances
  • The Yankees are safe in 2nd place in the AL

The NY Yankees have shown the downsides of having a great momentum in the first half of the season, proving that nothing can last for the entire season. Their offensive stats have took a serious hit following their lousy performance in July and August. Moreover, they dropped down to 2nd place in the AL which is still a good enough starting point for the Playoffs. They can feel safe as the third-placed team from Tampa couldn’t close the gap in the last month as they are still sitting at eight wins away from the Yankees.

On the other hand, the Angels had a blast on the pitch at Rogers Center over the weekend. They got a 3-0 clean sweep over the Blue Jays and they have most likely gained an extra boost of confidence ahead of their home series against the Yankees. Jose Suarez will be their starting pitcher for the night as the 33-year-old has significantly improved his throws in August. We think that he will be able to stop DH LeMahieu and the Yankees on Monday night. LeMahieu has been struggling recently scoring just one run across his last 14 appearances in the MLB. Hence, we believe that he will once again go scoreless for the Yankees.
