Oakland Athletics vs Los Angeles Angels

Where: Angel Stadium of Anaheim

When: Thursday, June 27, 2019, 10:07 pm Eastern

We have an American League West matchup to discuss when the Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels meet for game one of their four-game scheduled series on Thursday night. This preview was published prior to the conclusion of Wednesday MLB contests and all opinions shared is based on the completed play from Tuesday night.

Oakland is third in the AL West and scheduled as their probable starter right-hander Mike Fiers. Los Angeles is fourth in the American League West and plans for righty Griffin Canning to get the start against Oakland. I’m the Flash and will be discussing this game with you today.

Oakland Third Place in AL West

Oakland is playing good baseball and is 7-3 over their last ten games and enters Wednesday hoping to continue a one-game winning streak. The Athletics has outscored their opponents by 41 runs and has an 18-19 record away from the Oakland Coliseum this season. Infielder Matt Chapman leads Oakland with 18 bombs, infielder Marcus Semien has a club-high .275 batting average and outfielder Khris Davis leads the Athletics with 43 RBI this season.

The Athletics aren’t listing any significant injuries for this series with the Angels.

Fiers (7-3, 4.20 ERA) has a nearly elite 1.12 WHIP and his 5.53 xFIP suggests maybe Fiers has been lucky and could see some regression soon. Fiers strikes out 5.92 per nine innings pitched with 2.77 walks and 1.43 bombs allowed per nine innings pitched. The Angels score 5.13 runs per game and have blasted 63 bombs out of Angels Stadium at Anaheim this season and Fiers had better be careful with the Angels .184 ISO and wRC+ of 114 this season.

Angels Two Game Winning Streak

The Angels are also playing decent baseball and have won six of their last ten games and enter Wednesday night riding a two-game winning streak. Los Angeles has outscored its opponents by seven runs this season and has a 20-18 record at Angels Stadium of Anaheim. Mike Trout is the best player in baseball and leads the Angels with 22 bombs with a team-high 56 RBI and leads Los Angeles with a .307 batting average this season.

Los Angeles isn’t reporting any significant injuries for their series with Oakland.

Canning (2-4, 3.88 ERA) has an elite 1.02 WHIP and his 4.62 xFIP suggests maybe some regression is headed the young right-hander’s way this season. Canning strikes out 9.22 per nine innings pitched with 2.10 walks and 1.62 bombs allowed per nine innings pitched. Oakland scores an average of 5.6 runs per game and smashed 62 bombs away from the Coliseum and Canning might have a tough time with the Athletics .180 ISO and wRC+ of 96 this season against right-handed pitching.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

The Angels should win game one of this series on Thursday night. Canning is a much better pitcher at home than Fiers is on the road and we also must consider Oakland is traveling after their Wednesday night game with St Louis and they will or at least should be a bit tired.

Cash with the Flash and play Los Angeles to beat the Athletics.

Prediction: Angels

Full-Game Total Pick

Not sure what the total will be but we have two sides with low strikeout rates and combine for an average of nearly 10 runs per game. Both sides have been playing well and I expect some runs to be scored. I saw the following trends I think might be helpful on Thursday night.

  • Over is 5-1 in the last 6 meetings.
  • Over is 28-12-2 in the last 42 meetings in Los Angeles.

Cash with the Flash and play OVER on Thursday night.

Prediction: Over
