The Oakland Athletics (5-20, fifth in the AL West) will face the Los Angeles Angels (13-12, third in the AL West) on Thursday, April 27th, at 1:07 PM, in Angel Stadium. Both teams have already faced each other three times in this season, with the Angels leading 2-1. In this article, we will analyze both teams' pitching and hitting stats and give our prediction.
The Athletics are expected to start left-handed pitcher JP Sears (0-1, 4.98 ERA), who has played in 21.2 innings, allowing 20 hits, 23 strikeouts, and 4 walks. Sears has struggled this season, and his ERA is one of the highest in the league. The Angels will start right-handed pitcher Shohei Ohtani (3-0, 0.64 ERA), who has played in 28.0 innings, allowing only 8 hits, 38 strikeouts, and 15 walks. Ohtani has been dominant this season, and his ERA is the lowest in the league.
Both teams have struggled offensively this season, especially the Athletics. They have a .225 batting average, 27 home runs, and 92 runs. On the other hand, the Angels have a .250 batting average, 34 home runs, and 131 runs. The Athletics' top hitter is Brent Rooker, with a .315 batting average, 6 home runs, and 15 RBI. The Angels' top hitter is Mike Trout, with a .311 batting average, 7 home runs, and 22 RBI.
Based on the pitching and hitting stats, it is evident that the Angels have a significant advantage in this game. Ohtani has been dominant this season, and he will likely continue to stifle the Athletics' offense. Sears, on the other hand, has struggled, and the Angels' hitters will likely take advantage of his pitching. The under of 8 runs is the best bet for this game, as both teams have struggled offensively, and Ohtani is expected to keep the Athletics' scoring low.
Although the Angels are favored to win this game, betting on the under of 8 runs is the best bet, as both teams have struggled offensively this season. Furthermore, Ohtani's dominance on the mound will likely keep the Athletics' scoring low, making it challenging for them to cover the over. Therefore, we recommend betting on the under of 8 runs for this game.
In summary, this game between the Athletics and Angels is expected to be a low-scoring game, with the Angels likely winning. However, the best bet is the under of 8 runs, as both teams have struggled offensively this season. If you're looking for MLB picks for today, the under of 8 runs is the way to go.
