A battle of the basement in the AL West takes place tonight in Anaheim as the A’s and Angels kickoff a four game set. Oakland opened the day as +127 underdogs, and they’ve been a virtual lock to lose in this situation, going 0-8 in their last eight games as road underdogs. The Angels come back at -137 — they’ve won three of their last four as home favorites.
- Mike Trout is hitting just .239 in June with only two home runs.
- The Athletics are 1-10 in their last 11 games after losing as a favorite.
- The total has gone UNDER in the Athletics’ last four games against the Angels.
The Angels will send Tim Lincecum to the mound, who will be making his second start of the season. His first start — against the A’s last week — was a success, as he allowed just one run off four hits in six innings pitched, picking up the W.
The A’s will counter with Kendall Graveman, who’s coming a strong performance against the Angels last week where he allowed just one run off three hits in seven innings of work. He’s done a good job of shutting down Mike Trout in his career, giving up just two singles in 12 at-bats.
The total for tonight’s game opened at 8.5, and both teams are trending UNDER, combining to go 1-11 O/U in their last 12 games.
