The Los Angeles Angels in the Oakland athletics meet this afternoon for another important game. All odds and trends for this game are updated at Bovada sportsbook.
The Angels began their season slowly, and are now still fighting to get back to that playoff spot they think they deserve. The Angels have not played well over the last few weeks as evident by their 10-4 loss to Oakland yesterday. That makes 7 losses in 11 games for the Angels. On the mound tonight the Angels will give the ball to Zach Greinke who will be pitching his third time for his new team. He will be looking to improve from a dreadful outing in his last time out versus the White Sox.
Oakland has seemingly come from nowhere and are now a huge factor in the division race and the wild-card race. The A’s the hottest team in baseball right now and sit in second place in their division just ahead of the Angels. On Tuesday they were sparked by the pitching of Bartolo Colon who was brilliant seven scoreless innings of work. Tonight they will look to Daniel Strailey who gets his second career start. In his major-league debut Strailey gave up only one run over six innings and would like to repeat that performance tonight.
While Greinke certainly has the ability to shut the Oakland bats down, we have to take Oakland as the hot team as the home underdog. Give us Oakland on the moneyline at sports books.
