The Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Angel Stadium. On Saturday the A’s were able to secure the 7-3 victory.
Sears Tries to Finish Season Strong
On the mound for the Athletics will be JP Sears and he sits with a 5-13 record and an ERA of 4.49. In his last start against the Tigers, he went five innings giving up six hits and two runs. The Athletics are averaging 3.62 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.69 runs per game. The offense is ranked 30th in the league while the pitching is ranked 29th. If Sears is good the A’s will have a great chance.
Angels Look to Avoid Series Loss
It would be only fighting if the Angels were to lose their last series of the season against the Oakland Athletics. In the first game the pitching gave up only a run but in the last game they gave up seven runs. The Angels are averaging 4.55 runs while their pitching is giving up 5.13 runs per game. The offense is ranked 16th while the pitching is ranked is ranked 24th.
Shane’s Free Pick
There are better games to bet on Sunday but if you must be on this game, this total is too low. I don’t trust Sears and the Angels are going to find success here. The A’s bats are going to continue to find success like they did on Saturday and that will be the difference as this game is going to go over the total. Back the over.
