The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics face off on Friday in an American League West showdown at Ring Central Coliseum. 

The Los Angeles Angels come into this game with a 21-12 record overall and coming into this one they have won three of their last four games. In the last two wins the Angels have scored 23 runs total and it’s going to be important that the offense is strong here. The Angels are averaging 4.97 runs per game. Shohei Ohtani has been the top player for the Angels hitting six home runs and driving in 21 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Oakland Athletics who sit with a 14-19 record overall, but they did win their last three games against the Detroit Tigers. During the three games, the A’s have scored 18 runs total and that is a good sign for an offense that has had some issues this season. Sean Murphy has been the top player for the A’s hitting four home runs and driving in 17 RBIs.

Getting the start for the A’s is Daulton Jefferies who sit with a 1-5 record and an ERA of 5.22. In his last start against the Twins, he went five innings giving up seven hits and four runs. 

Getting the start for the Angels will be Chase Silseth who will be the first player from the 2021 MLB draft to make the big leagues. He was an 11th-round pick, but the Angels feel he’s ready to help now. 

The A’s are 0-7 in their last seven home games. The under is 6-1-2 in the A’s last nine games overall. The over is 5-1-2 in the Angels last eight games following a loss. The under is 6-1-2 in the A’s last nine games on grass. 

The Angels have dominated with the offense in their last two wins scoring 23 runs total. I expect their offense is going to have no issue teeing off against Daulton Jefferies who sits with an ERA of 5.22. I also expect that Silseth is going to have some nerves, and the A’s are going to score some runs. Back the over.
