The Los Angeles Angels and the Oakland Athletics will play game two of their three-game set this Saturday from the Oakland Coliseum. The A’s found a way to steal game one despite a strong outing from Shohei Ohtani with a 2-1 victory.
Angels Betting Preview
Los Angeles is 0-1 after the letdown in their season opener. It sadly looked like more of the same for this top heavy Halos team, and they’ll look to avoid dropping multiple games to Oakland this early here. Newly acquired infielder Gio Urshela was the only Angel to reach base more than one in game one.
Patrick Sandoval will take the mound for the Angels. The fifth-year flamethrower broke some ground last season personal-best across the boards, and there’s hope he can become a strong arm to pair with Ohtani this season. Sandoval went 6-9, with a 2.91 ERA and 151 strikeouts in 2022.
Athletics Betting Preview
Oakland moved to 1-0 after coming through at home on Thursday. The Athletics have plucked too many victories from the Angels in recent memory, and they’ll look to continue to be a thorn in their side this weekend.
Shintaro Fujinami will make the start for the Athletics. This will mark the MLB debut for the longtime Hanshin Tigers starter, and he’ll look to one up the effort from his fellow countrymen on Thursday. Fujinami posted a 7-6 record, with a 2.77 ERA and 115 strikeouts during his 2022 season.
Anaheim vs Oakland Trends
Los Angeles is 0-1 against the spread this season, with a 0-1 over/under record. Oakland went 1-0 ATS this year, with a 0-1 O/U record. Angels are 5-1 in their last 6 Saturday games.
Corey's Free Pick
There will be a lot of pressure on the Angels early and often to win games and avoid losing streaks, and I think we see some of that urgency here Saturday. Sandoval has enjoyed success against the A’s, and there will surely be first game jitters for Shintaro Fujinami on the other side. Trust a bounce back effort from the Angels here, and take their run line.
