Oakland Athletics vs LA Angels Prediction

I’m on the under here. I just don’t trust either one of these teams offensively. If I had to take a side I’d lean towards Oakland, but just when you’re ready to trust the A’s, they put up a dud offensively and struggle to drum up any sort of offense. The Angels just continue to struggle in their own right and I think this is a 3-2 kind of game whichever way it ends up going. Give me the under here.

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
