Athletics drop opener

Oakland had been rolling along for the most part, but suffered a 4-3 loss to the Angels in the series opener on Friday. The Athletics are 68-48 overall and 35-25 on the road. Oakland is putting up 4.71 runs per game this season while allowing 4.22 per contest.

Edwin Jackson gets the start for Oakland this week. Jackson has started eight games this season and he has a 3-2 record with a 2.87 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. Jackson has pitched 47.0 innings and has 35 strikeouts and 14 walks.

Angels catching fire

The Angels are on a four-game win streak right now following their 4-3 win on Friday. Los Angeles is now 59-58 overall and 33-28 at home. The Angels are putting up 4.57 runs per game this season while allowing 4.22 per contest.

Tyler Skaggs will get the start for the Angels on Saturday. He has started 20 games this year and has an 8-7 record with a 3.34 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Skaggs has pitched 113.1 innings this season and has 118 strikeouts with 34 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Oakland

The Athletics have won seven of their last eight Saturday games and 10 of their last 12 following a loss.

Los Angeles

The Angels are 4-1 in their last five division games and 9-2 in Skaggs’ last 11 starts in the division.

Prediction:

The Angels have managed to win four straight without Mike Trout in the lineup. He won’t be available again tonight and I think eventually that is going to catch up with them. Jackson has pitched pretty well for Oakland and I think he can compete with Skaggs tonight. The Athletics have found ways to grind out wins this year and I think they will do the same tonight.

 

The Pick: Oakland Athletics +115
