Before Betting on Red Sox vs Angels June 9

It’s been a new manager but same results for the Anaheim Angels, who relieved Joe Maddon of his duties following a 12-game losing streak – but now that mark has reached 14-straight defeats. The Boston Red Sox can complete the 4-game sweep with a win on Thursday night although the BoSox look like they’ll be underdogs in the finale according to the offshore odds.

Overall Boston is trending in a much better direction with 7-straight wins. That includes a 3-game sweep in Oakland last series, although the Red Sox are still 11.5 games back from the Yankees in the AL East. The recent skid by the Angels has pushed them to 9.5 games back of the Astros in the AL West.

There is hope for the home team in the Red Sox Angels June 9 matchup, as Shohei Ohtani (3-4, 3.99 ERA) is up in the rotation. Ohtani has already lost twice during the current LAA slide though, giving up 5ER over 6.0 IP to the Blue Jays on May 26th and 4ER over just 3.0 IP to the Yankees on June 2nd.

The Red Sox counter with Nick Pivetta (5-4, 3.50 ERA) who has allowed an ER or less in five of his last six starts.

Sportsbooks seem to be laying the trap with these offshore odds, because why would Anaheim be favored during a 14-game losing streak – especially when Boston has won seven in a row? The Red Sox were a -131 and a -151 favorite the last two nights, now they are as high as a +118 underdog at BetUS?

When it looks too good to be true, it usually is. As hard as it is to take the Angels in their current state the offshore odds are reading like the losing streak is over.
