Baseball Betting: Los Angeles Angels favored at home against the Oakland Athletics

May 16th, 2024 Betting on MLB Baseball

Baseball betting odds have the Los Angeles Angels favored at home against the Oakland Athletics on Thursday night. The Angels are expected to send Dustin Moseley to the mound while the A’s counter with Brett Anderson. Online baseball betting scheduling information tells us that this is the finale of a four-game series between the two teams to start the season. MLB betting on the Angels early this season is going to be interesting because of all the pitching injuries the Angels have.

MLB betting information shows that John Lackey, Ervin Santana and Kelvim Escobar are dealing with injuries and that means pitchers like Saunders and Moseley will have to pick up the slack for the Angels to win versus the baseball odds. The Angels had an excellent pitching staff a year ago and when all is said and done they will probably have a great staff again this season. But it will not be easy in baseball betting. Online MLB betting information shows that the Angels lost closer Francisco Rodriguez and they are trying to replace him with Brian Fuentes. Baseball betting information tells us that Los Angeles also lost Mark Teixeira to the Yankees and they are trying to fill the gap with Bobby Abreu. Manager Mike Scioscia always does a great job and has the Angels in contention.

Oakland is expected to be vastly improved this season in MLB betting with the addition of Matt Holliday and Jason Giambi. The A’s should definitely score some runs and impact the MLB betting line. Oakland may have some pitching issues though which could impact the online baseball betting odds. There is not a pitcher on the starting staff that really scares another team and that is a major problem when it comes to the A’s in MLB betting. They do have Brad Ziegler in the bullpen and he is a good one but some of the other young talent has to make an impact for the A’s to really challenge in baseball odds.

The A’s have held their own at Los Angeles in recent seasons in MLB betting. They are about .500 in the last year or so on the road at Los Angeles even though overall the A’s struggled in online baseball betting on the road a year ago.

The Angels are normally a team you can look at to take under the baseball betting total but with all of their pitching injuries that might not happen right away.
