The Angels continue to set the pace in the American League with a six-game winning streak heading into Wednesday’s action. They have comfortable eight-game lead in the AL West over Oakland with a MLB-best record of 89-55. The Angels have been hitting the ball all over the park during this recent tear, taking the total OVER in their last five games. Los Angeles offers some tremendous value at +350 odds to win the AL Pennant given the way it has been playing down the stretch.
