Oakland vs. LA Angels,

Score: 1 - 4
Money Line: -126 LA Angels
The Los Angeles Angels had a very disappointing first half of the season. One of the things that hurt them the most was Jered Weaver’s injury.
Weaver is clearly their best starting pitcher, and without him the Angels’ rotation struggled mightily.
Oakland is leading the American League West right now, but the Athletics definitely don’t have an offense that can score runs in bunches.
Weaver has completely shut down Oakland in the past, and I see no reason for that to change in this contest.
Oakland started the season hitting the ball very well, but they have come back down to earth in the last month or so.
The Athletics have been winning games because of their tremendous pitching. The problem here for Oakland is they won’t have the pitching advantage in this game.
Though the Angels were definitely disappointing in the first half, it wouldn’t surprise me if this team made a run in the latter stages of the season. They have too much talent to stay below .500 all season long.
The under is 10-0 in Weaver’s last 10 home starts against Oakland, so you know he has been dominant against this Athletics lineup.
The Angels are 4-0 in Weaver’s last 4 starts against Oakland.
Take the Angels. Good Luck, Razor Ray.
