Sportsbooks For Los Angeles Angels

Playing in the American League West Division, The Los Angeles Angels have been part of Major League Baseball since 1961. Since 1966, they’ve played their home game at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Their known as the Angels across the baseball world. Their name is a tribute to the minor league franchise of the L.A. Angels, who wanted to remember the Pacific Coast League side that played between 1903-1957. Autry, who owned the team in 1961 and was behind their expansion to Major League Baseball, bought the rights to The Angels’ name from Walter O’Malley. [+]

Although not the most successful team in MLB history, The Angels have won the World Series once, in 2002. They also won the American League West Division three times in a row between 2007 and 2009. Even when that period of success dissipated, The Angels, by 2013, had attracted more than 3 million to their home ball games. They’ve won nine West Division, most recently in 2014.

The mantra of The Angels fans’ is famously ‘Win One for the Cowboy’, which refers to Gene Autry, who never saw The Angels win a World Series despite owning the club for 38 years. By the time The Angels completed their 2002 World Series win, Autry had passed away, so the saying has remained a staple. When they won the World Series in 2002, beating the San Francisco Giants 4-3 under the stewardship of manager Mike Scioscia, Angels’ player Tim Salmon retrieved a Stetson cowboy hat from the home dugout in honor of Gene Autry. His jersey was retired in Autry’s honor after his passing.

Coming out to the Anaheim Stadium crowd to Calling All Angels by Train, The L.A. Angels have a saying every time they win a baseball game, that being ‘Light up the Halo!’ as they do exactly that to a 230-foot halo that sits atop the ‘A’ in the stadium. Sentiment even plays a part in The Angels philosophy when they’re losing, as a lucky ‘Rally Monkey’, which was first showed during a clip from the film Ace Ventura.

How to Make Money on the Los Angeles Angels

The L.A. Angels have a fairly low batting average in the American League West Division and we see them struggling in many divisional games.

Backing them to be involved in under 7.5 run games is not optimal, as they are more likely to concede enough runs to leave themselves open to high scoring affairs. The current 2016 campaign has started with many high scoring games, which offers some insight for future over/under bets.

Back them to lose more than they win this season and take the under in games against teams that struggle at the plate.
