There is one MLB pick tonight.
Take LA Angels (-128) on the ML against Oakland Athletics risking 3.84% to win 3%.
(Gossett and Bridwell must start for wager to have action.)
This is the second time that these two teams have met in a series in the last week. These teams opened the season with a 4-game series which saw the Angels completely dominate, winning three of the four games. The Angels have been hot to start the season, going 5-2 overall and we expect they will have the advantage once again in Game 1 tonight.
The A's will turn to Daniel Gossett as he will look to rebound from a rough outing in his first start against the Halos. LA got to Gossett for 6 hits and 4 runs in just 4 innings of work. The right-hander has struggled against LA going 0-2 with a 5.06 ERA and WHIP of 1.687 over 10.7 career innings as a starter. With the Halos bats having already seen Gossett just a week ago, we expect that they will have the advantage at the plate tonight.
Oakland also hasn't historically played well in Los Angeles. They have managed to win just 3 of the last 16 games in LA and just 2 of their last 10 overall against the Angels.
Parker Bridwell will be making his first start of the season; however, we're not necessarily concerned with what Bridwell brings to the table. Even if he struggles on the mound, the Angels offense has been firing on all cylinders and we expect that they will be able to do enough damage to Gossett to make up for any mistakes Bridwell makes on the mound. LA keeps their momentum going with another win tonight.
