It is the first of a six-game road trip for the A’s and that is never good news for them considering they struggle on the road in bet on baseball results.
Baseball betting has been successful on the Angels this season and unsuccessful on the A’s and that should continue in this series. The concern in this bet on baseball series is the price as the Angels will be heavily favored in all three games which means the A’s need to steal just one to break even in online betting.
The A’s stealing the first game doesn’t look that likely in baseball betting since it is expected to be Gio Gonzalez against Jared Weaver. Gonzalez is 5-6 on the season with a 6.15 ERA as online betting stats show. He didn’t even make it out of the fourth inning last time out and it was the second straight start he didn’t make it to the fifth inning. He has given up eight earned runs and 10 hits over his last 6 2/3 innings as baseball betting stats have it. Last year against the Angels in baseball betting he gave up four runs and five walks in three innings.
Jered Weaver is getting and extra day of rest for this baseball betting start. He has been the workhorse for the Angels this season as he has not missed a start all year. He went six innings last time out against Texas in baseball betting and gave up three earned runs on five hits and two walks. Weaver has been great in baseball betting at home going 9-2 with a 2.89 ERA. He is 2-2 in his career with an ERA of 2.93.
Oakland has not been a good road team this season in baseball betting which makes them a tough team to bet at times at the online sportsbook. The A’s have a pitching staff that can be good at times as bet on baseball stats indicate, but Gonzalez is not in that mix. The Angels have been good at home and on the road and taking them in baseball betting is always worth considering. They are in the Top 3 in hitting and their pitching is normally good enough to keep them in games.
