MLB Betting Trends
The Athletics are 5-2 in the last seven Bailey starts. Oakland is 23-8 in its last 31 Tuesday games.
The Angels are 16-37 in their last 53 games overall. Los Angeles is 1-6 in its last seven home games.
Los Angeles has mostly packed it in this season and while Bailey isn't a perfect pitcher, he's been efficient more often than not. I think Oakland will score for him off Peters and stay in control for the rest of the game as it solidifies its AL Wild Card spot even further.
