Shohei Ohtani leads the Angels with 158 hits and 94 RBI, while Taylor Ward and Luis Rengifo have combined for 265 hits and 116 RBI. Patrick Sandoval gets the ball, and he is 6-9 with a 3.03 ERA and 145 strikeouts this season. Sandoval is 2-3 with a 2.13 ERA and 31 strikeouts in his career against the Athletics.

The Angels are 3-7 in their last 10 road games and 7-0 in their last 7 overall. The Athletics are 22-49 in their last 71 home games and 16-36 in their last 52 overall. The under is 5-1 in Angels last 6 overall. The under is 5-1 in Athletics last 6 overall. The Angels are 5-0 in the last 5 meetings in Oakland and 6-0 in the last 6 meetings.

The Los Angeles Angels are coming off a really strong week when the offense caught fire and Patrick Sandoval has been solid this season. The Oakland Athletics look like a team that's ready for the offseason and their offense has laid eggs time and time again. Adrian Martinez has a 6.08 ERA and 1.48 WHIP on the season. I have no choice but to ride the hot hand with the Angels, and I'll lay the RL for max betting value.
