Preview

Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics will play game 3 of their 6-game series on Thursday at Angel stadium of Anaheim. The Series is tied 1-1 so far between them while the Angels are 6-3 straight up Vs the A's so far this season.

Los Angeles Angels 

Los Angeles Angels have lost 3-1 in game 2 Vs Oakland at home in a yet another poor performance by the Angels at home as they have lost 7 of their last 9 home games this season. Ohtani was in the mound in the last game and he allowed 7 hits and 2 Earned runs in 5.20 Innings pitched and Suarez will be the one on the mound tonight. The Angels are 26th in runs scored and 11th in runs allowed this season.

Probable pitcher:

Janson Junk (1-0, 0.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Angels in game 3 on Thursday, Junk's last start was against Kansas city Royals and he went 5 innings allowing 0 earned runs and had 8 strikeouts in a game that ended as a 4-0 win for the Angels.

Oakland Athletics 

Oakland Athletics have broken their 3 games losing streak with a 3-1 win over Los Angeles as a +200 road underdog in game 2 of this series, Karprielian was in the mound in this game and he had a good game allowing 1 Earned run in 5.10 innings pitched. Oakland have won 8 of their last 12 games this season. Oakland are 29th in runs scored and 22nd in runs allowed this season.

Probable pitcher:

Paul Blackburn (6-6, 4.15 ERA) will be on the mound for the Athletics in game 3 on Thursday, Blackburn's last start was against Chicago White Sox and he went 5 innings allowing 0 earned runs and had 4 strikeouts in a game that ended as a 2-3 loss for A's.

Betting Trends

Los Angeles Angels have gone Under the total in 7 of last 9 games.

Los Angeles Angels are 6-14 Straight up last 20 games.

Los Angeles Angels are 2-7 straight up last 9 home games.

Oakland Athletics are 8-4 Straight up last 12 games.

Oakland Athletics are 2-5 Straight up last 5 games Vs the Angels.

Oakland Athletics have gone Under the total in 5 of last 6 games.

Prediction

Los Angeles Angels have really been out of form lately and they are not performing anywhere near their potential as they have won only 2 of last 9 home games and Oakland on the other hand have been decent winning 8 of their last 12 games and I like them to repeat the result of game 2 by beating the Angels again as a small Underdog tonight.

PICK: Oakland Athletics ML (+110).
