MLB betting on Thursday has the Los Angeles Angels favored at home against the Oakland Athletics. This is the first of a four-game bet on MLB series between the two teams.
MLB betting may favor the Angels in this matchup but some of the trends do not. This has been a road team MLB betting series recently. The Angels have won 12 of the last 20 between the two teams but they are only 4-6 in MLB betting in the last 10 at home against the A’s. The teams met in Los Angeles in early April and the A’s won two of the three in MLB betting.
The matchup on Thursday has Trevor Cahill going for the A’s while Ervin Santana gets the start for Los Angeles. Cahill is 6-12 on the season with a 4.86 ERA as MLB betting stats indicate while Santana is 7-6 with a 6.13 ERA. Cahill has been pitching well of late with nothing to show for it. He has not won in his last six outings, but pitched well last time out against the Tigers getting a no-decision. Cahill hasn’t gotten a decision against the Angels this season and has a 4.66 ERA in two starts as online betting stats indicate.
Santana is starting to pitch better for the Angels of late. He has won four in a row, the latest coming against the Blue Jays. His ERA is 3.33 in his past four starts as MLB betting stats indicate. He has owned the A’s in his career going 10-1 in 15 appearances with a 1.35 ERA as MLB betting numbers tell us.
The A’s are a tough team for those that bet on MLB at the online sportsbook to figure out. Sometimes the A’s play well enough to steal a few games, even on the road. Their MLB betting numbers are just average though and you never can tell when to take them.
The Angels have actually been a better team for bet on MLB gamblers on the road than at home although they still have a winning record at home. It is just that on the road they are more fairly priced in MLB betting. The Angels have the top offense in the league as MLB betting stats indicate so taking the over might be the way to go in this game.
