Los Angeles Angels Seek to Even Record
Los Angeles was unable to get their insult going as they were completely choked in the opening of this series and season.

Mike Trout and Kole Calhoun each had a single to account for the other hits of the angels. Trevor Cahill (0-1

Marco Estrada is expected to take the tray to his second start of the season for the A & # 39; in this. He has no record with a 5.40 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, no walks and a strikeout of the season. Estrada was not decisive in the decision in his first start of the year, which came in Tokyo against Seattle last Thursday. He threw five innings, allowing three runs on five hits without walking and a strike in a game that Oakland continued to lose 5-4 in 12 innings. Estrada makes her sixth career start against the angels in this competition. He is 1-3 with a 5.90 ERA, a 1.448 WHIP, eight hikes and 24 strikes over 29 innings work in these outings.

- Athletics are 6-1 in their last 7 Friday games
- Athletics are 21-6 in their last 27 in match 2 in a series
- Angels are 1-4 in their last 5 in during a 2-series
- Angels are 0-5 in their last 5 road games
- Angels are 0-4 in their last 4 road games vs a right-handed starter
The Bottom Line What to do bet on this game.
Full-Game Side Bet
This one becomes interesting, since neither the start-up candidate has much of a track record against the opposition. Harvey has never faced the Aries who have spent their entire career to date in the National League, while Estrada has fought for his excursions to the angels. Having said that, the A&S have three regular season games under their belt at this time after playing the two in Tokyo. The angels only have one and must be glad that the trout have only suffered a cramp in the eighth inning Thursday. Look for Oakland to bring the victory here to improve to 2-2 in the season.
Prediction: Oakland's -112
Total choice for the whole game
Oakland had a lot of solid offensive production in their first three games of the season when they ran seven, five and four races in these outings. The Agencies still need some situational frameworks, as they cannot rely on the long ball, especially in the O.co Colosseum's spacious framework. Los Angeles will have to be better than they were offensive in the opening, as the pitching staff is a massive job going on at this time. Can Harvey deliver a victory to the angels in his US league debut?
Over is 5-0-1 in Angels & # 39; last 6 road games, 4-0-1 in their last 5 road games vs a right-handed start and 8-2-1 in their last 11 games vs a right-handed starts. Oakland has seen 4-0-1 surpassed in their last 5 games vs. a right-handed start, 4-1 in their last 5 Friday games and 7-2 in their last 9 home games vs. a right-handed starts. Those over are 8-0 in the last eight meetings in Oakland and 18-7-1 in the last 26 meetings overall.
Prediction: Over 8.5
