MLB Betting Trends

Oakland

The Athletics have won six straight division games and they are 20-7 in their last 27 games following a win.

Los Angeles

The Angels have lost Pena’s last four starts and they are 7-19 in their last 26 games following a day off.

Prediction:

The Athletics are playing at a high level right now and I think they have shown a consistency that Los Angeles has been seeking for months. The Angels beat up the Tigers, but the Athletics are not the Tigers. Oakland knows how to grind out wins and I think they will be able to get to Pena tonight and pick up another key victory.

 

The Pick: Oakland Athletics -110
