Angels Start Second Half of Season Against First Place Athletics

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 7/19/2013 5:46:32 PM

The Los Angeles Angels have slowly started to turn their year around but will begin the second part of the season against the tough Oakland Athletics. Now is the time for the Angels to show sports gamblers if they are for real or not this season as they will quickly fade into the background if they are unable to come out winning early and often.

The Athletics have kept on surprising online sports books this season by their winning as they have battled their way to the top of the AL West standings with a 56-39 record. The Athletics are 11 games ahead of the Angels in the standings and will be looking to widen that lead with the powerful bat of the Home Run Derby champion Yoenis Cespedes.

MLB Betting Preview: Los Angeles Angels

The Angels are maximizing their odds to win by sending ace C.J. Wilson to the mound to start this game. Wilson has a 3.37 ERA on the season and in his last seven games heading into the All-Star break he saw his ERA drop from 4.02 to where it is now. Wilson has two quality starts against the Athletics this season meaning he could lead the Angels to victory if their lineup can provide some run support. Mike Trout is the hot hitter for the Angels with his .322 batting average and 15 home runs. Josh Hamilton and Albert Pujols have continued to struggle, but other players have stepped up and helped this team rank in the top seven in the league in runs scored.

Youngster Dan Straily will start on the mound for the Athletics and although he has a 4.28 ERA on the season he has improved lately and has a 3.24 ERA in his last ten outings. Straily hasn’t faced the Angels since his second start of the year and since he has improved since then not much stock should be taken in the six runs he gave up in less than five innings. Straily will have one of the most patient lineups backing him up as the Athletics have drawn the second most walks in the league which is a big reason they have been so successful and scored runs despite struggling at the plate.

MLB Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick

The pitching match-up could be what makes this game interesting as both starting pitchers have been improving on the mound as of late meaning this game could be a low scoring one despite two top ten offenses squaring off against each other. The Angles have more to gain by a win, and despite having a worse record they do have the more experienced pitcher on the mound which is a big reason why they are my sports betting pick to win this game.
