Angels Best And Worst Months Past 3 Years

Los Angeles Angels 2024 Odds

There is no BetMGM California Sportsbook in operation, but in neighboring Arizona the operator has +15000 odds on the Angels to surprise everybody and win the 2024 World Series. Only four teams are below that on the board.

Losing Ohtani was the big news of the offseason for the Angels, who also have not gotten a full season out of superstar Mike Trout since 2019. Trout, 32, has been in an out of the lineup with various injuries in the past three years, which has done the Angels no favors in their month-by-month record.

The Angels start their 2024 regular season March 28 and will play three games in four days in Baltimore against the Orioles. After the Angels play a three-game set at the Miami Marlins, they have their opener at Angel Stadium on April 5 against the Boston Red Sox to start a six-game homestand.
