Analysis

The A's have won the first 2 games of this series versus their division rival. However, Oakland has won 3 games in a row 3 times this season and it last occurred on 5/5 which a day short of 2 months. As a matter of fact, since 5/6, Oakland has only won 2 games in a row 5 times and after that happened, they went 1-4 during the following game. J.P. Sears get the start today for Oakland and is 0-6 during his last 6 team starts. Furthermore, over his last 4 starts Sears had a horrible 9.72 ERA/2.28 WHIP. During his last 3 starts, Sears allowed an alarmingly high 5 homers in just 11 ⅔ innings pitched. The Oakland bullpen has blown 9 of their last 17 save opportunities since 5/1. Oakland is a terrible 14-25 during days games this season.

The Angels will go with a bullpen by committee pitching approach this afternoon. The Halo are tabbed as a money line underdog today even though they're not plus money. With that being said, they're 5-1 in their last 6 as a money line underdog following a loss in their previous game. Give me the Angels on the money line.
