The Angels are one of the hottest teams in baseball right now. They still have ground to make up to push Oakland though. Wins in this series will help.
Los Angeles Angels
Mike Trout is still out but the Angels are 8-2 in their last 10. They have won six games in a row as the offense has been on fire. They have scored at least six runs in all six games and are in the top ten in most offensive categories.
A year ago Dylan Bundy was their best starter. This year he has been their worst. In fewer innings than last season he has already given up more hits and homers than a year ago. His ERA has jumped from 3.29 to 6.16.
The Angels have to keep slugging because their bullpen is league average at best. Raisel Iglesias has a great arm but he is not the most consistent of closers.
Oakland has gone 8-2 over their last 10 games too which is why the Angels have not made up any ground on the AL West leaders. 1B Matt Olson had a power surge over the weekend with three homers. He is on pace for his best season in the Majors.
Ditto for lefty Sean Manaea. He has only given up more than three runs in a start twice this season and in his last four starts he has given up just 2 earned runs combined. None in June.
Oakland’s bullpen is the least dominant in the league in terms of strikeout. They support one of the better starting staffs in the game so they are not being overused. If you are a FIP guy they are 11th.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
These teams are both feeling great right now. This one is a pure pitching play. I don’t see how you can side with Bundy and the Angels in this spot. The run line is required to get a reasonable value though. Look for Oakland to have an easy win at home to start the series.
