Oakland is 17-40 in their last 57 road games and 1-8 in their last 9 Thursday games. The over is 11-3 in Oakland’s last 14 road games. Los Angeles is 16-6 in their last 22 home games and 1-8 in their last 9 Thursday games. The under is 9-4 in Los Angeles’ last 13 Thursday games. Oakland is 1-5 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in Los Angeles.


The Athletics have been terrible so far this season and I don’t see their luck changing in this game. Oakland only has five wins on the year and they have the worst team ERA in baseball. Los Angeles is starting Shohei Ohtani, who has been dominant on the mound this year. I like the Angels to win this game by a few runs, so I am taking them -1.5 here.
