The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim get back into the swing of things with their first series after the All-Star break that pits the Angels against the Oakland A’s. The A’s surprised the sports betting public last year by fielding a competitive team. But inconsistent pitching and lackluster hitting kept the MLB baseball betting crowd unconvinced about the A’s potential. The Angels were a disappointment last season, but they are a sports betting bonus this year as they are keeping pace with the AL West leading Texas Rangers. The Angels need every divisional win they can get if they want to stay in the pennant race for the long haul.

Los Angeles Angels @ Oakland A’s - Friday, July 15 – 10:05 PM ET

The Angels are not fooling around in this series as they start off with red hot Dan Haren on the mound. Haren is 10-5 on the season with a 2.61 ERA. In his last four starts, Haren is 4-0 and has only allowed five earned runs. He is also the kind of pitcher that can last into the eighth inning, which gives the Angels’ bullpen a break.

The Oakland A’s counter with Brandon McCarthy on the mound. McCarthy is 1-5 on the season with a 3.66 ERA. The last time McCarthy played the Angels was on April 26th, and it was a complete disaster. He allowed seven runs on 14 hits in only 5 1/3 innings. He will probably have the same amount of luck in this game as he had in April.

Los Angeles Angels @ Oakland A’s – Saturday, July 16 – 4:05 PM ET (Game one of double-header)

The Angels do not play well in double-headers, and they have no idea who they will be putting on the mound for this game. It isn’t the first game of the double-header that is a problem for the Angels, it is the second game. The A’s will put Trevor Cahill on the mound, and Cahill also lost his last start against the Angels in spectacular fashion giving up three runs on 10 hits in six innings. Look for the Angels to continue their first game mojo and dominate this game.

Los Angeles Angels @ Oakland A’s - Saturday, July 16 – TBD (Game two of a double-header)

Whatever problems the Angels seem to have in the second game of a double-header will come to the surface in this game. Once again, the Angels are not sure how they will play their rotation in this second game of the day, but the A’s will be putting Rich Harden on the mound. Harden has not seen much action at all this season, and the Angels will have problems trying to figure him out.

Angels Athletics Betting Pick: Oakland A’s

Los Angeles Angels @ Oakland A’s – Sunday, July 17 – 4:05 PM ET

The A’s get one game in this series and that will be it. The A’s will be putting All-Star pitcher Gio Gonzalez on the mound, and Gonzalez has been playing well lately. He is 3-1 in his last five starts and has only allowed seven runs in that stretch. Gonzalez also has a 2.08 ERA at home this year. But his first start after the All-Star break will not be a pleasant one.
