Los Angeles Angels at New York Yankees Prediction

After being rained out in Wednesday’s night showdown, Los Angeles and New York will meet up for a double-header. In game 1, the Yankees are the heavy favorites to pick up the win. On the other side, Shohei Ohtani will look to bounce back from a rough outing vs Toronto. However, I like New York to pick up the win and cover the runline.
