It is the finale of a short two-game MLB betting odds series between the two teams. Anthony Ortega is expected to start for the Angels while the A’s send Dallas Braden.
MLB odds statistics tell us that Ortega is 0-1 on the season with a 5.56 ERA. He pitched a lot better in his second Major League start last time out against the Yankees, giving up four runs in 6 1/3 innings at Yankee Stadium. Braden is 3-2 on the season with a 2.10 ERA. MLB betting odds numbers tell us he has won two in a row and pitched well for the A’s. He threw 111 pitches in five innings against the Rangers in his last start but did not give up a run. He has allowed two or fewer runs in each of his last four starts as MLB odds statistics show.
MLB odds numbers tell us that the A’s and Angels have split their last 20 meetings and their last 10 at Oakland. In those last 10 meetings at Oakland only three of them were decided by a single run in MLB odds.
The Angels have started slowly this season in MLB odds but not many people seem worried considering that Los Angeles is missing much of its starting pitching staff due to injury. The offense has held its own, ranking in the top half of the league as MLB odds stats indicate. The pitching has been weak but is expected to get much better as the team gets healthy.
Oakland has a similar record to the Angels in MLB odds but they have surprisingly struggled on offense. The pitching has been great but the A’s have gotten very little production out of Matt Holliday and some of the high priced talent on offense. The A’s have been in the bottom third of the league on offense as MLB betting odds numbers show and that just wasn’t supposed to be the case with their new additions to the lineup. The good news for Oakland is that the pitching for the most part has been great.
The over/under in MLB odds is 9-10-1 to the under in the last 20 games between the two teams and it is 4-5-1 to the under in MLB odds at Oakland in the last 10 games.
