The Oakland athletics and the Los Angeles Angels will meet for game one of a very important series on Monday. All odds and trends for this game can be found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Athletics are one of the surprising teams in baseball and they leave the American League wild-card race. They are 32-34 this season and sit five games in back in the division. In game one of the series Oakland will start Jarrod Parker who has lost four of his last six decisions. In 110 innings of work Parker is pitching to a 3.44 ERA.
The Angels have rebounded from a slow start but are still scratching and clawing for a playoff spot. The good news for them and they will send their ace Jered Weaver to the mound tonight for the start of this important series. Weaver has been outstanding all season. He has allowed just 89 hits in 122 innings of work good enough for 2.29 ERA.
Oakland is 10-3 in their last 13 home games against a team with a winning record, 21-9 in their last 30 games overall, and 5-2 in Parker’s last seven starts. Los Angeles is 4-1 in their last five game one of a series, 1-5 in their last six road games, and 42-15 in Weaver’s last 57 starts. Los Angeles is 4-1 in their last five games in Oakland.
Although the totals line may seem low, with Weaver and Parker on the hill we expect this to be low-scoring. Give as the under for total runs scored in this game at the sportsbook.
