The Los Angeles Angels and Oakland Athletics will wrap up their three-game series on Saturday at RingCentral Coliseum in Oakland, CA, with the first pitch scheduled for 4:07 p.m. PT.

 

The Angels will deploy left-handed pitcher Patrick Sandoval, who recorded a 6-9 record with a 2.91 ERA, a 1.34 WHIP, and 151 strikeouts in 2022, including 11 quality starts.

 

On the other hand, Oakland will send Shintaro Fujinami to the mound, a 28-year-old Japanese right-hander who will be making his first career start in the MLB.

 

He joined the Athletics during the offseason, signing a one-year contract worth $3.25 million. The Angels are currently -158 Moneyline favorites, and the game’s total is set at 7.5 runs.

 

Despite Shohei Ohtani’s stellar performance on Thursday, where he pitched six innings, struck out ten batters, and allowed no runs, the Angels lost 2-1 in Oakland due to a failure in the bullpen.

 

With an off day on Friday, Los Angeles will pin its hopes on Sandoval on Saturday to bounce back from the previous defeat.

 

  • The LA Angels are 1-4 SU in their last 5 outings with the Athletics.
  • The Los Angeles Angels are 1-5 SU in their last 6 games on the road.
  • The total stayed UNDER in 6 of the LA Angels’ last 8 games on the road against Oakland.

In their Opening Day game, the Los Angeles Angels were unable to capitalize on their star-studded lineup and ultimately fell short as heavy favorites.

 

Their offense only managed to score one run despite having multiple opportunities, going 1-6 with runners in scoring position and leaving seven runners stranded on base.

 

As they head into their second game against the Oakland Athletics, the Angels will need to rebound and show that they’re capable of performing up to their potential.

Meanwhile, Oakland came away with an unexpected victory on Opening Day, thanks in part to a strong showing from their bullpen.

 

Although they were held scoreless by Shohei Ohtani, the A’s were able to capitalize on their chances in the bottom of the eighth and secure the win.

 

Saturday’s game will mark the MLB debut for A’s starter Shintaro Fujinami, who spent the last decade playing for Japan’s Hanshin Tigers.

 

Facing off against Ohtani, who is himself a Japanese legend, is sure to be a memorable experience for Fujinami.

 

  • The total remained UNDER in 6 of Oakland’s last 7 matches with the Angels.
  • The Oakland Athletics are 5-1 SU in their last 6 games at home.
  • The Athletics are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games at home against the LA Angels.

Los Angeles Angels vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Los Angeles Angels. The Angels have not fared well recently against Oakland, but Sandoval should take care of business in this matchup.

 

The Angels lineup should also rebound, even if it’s against the bullpen after facing an unfamiliar starting pitcher.

 

The Angels boast two superstars in Mike Trout and Ohtani, as well as a handful of reliable vets in Hunter Renfroe, Brandon Drury, and Gio Urshela.

 

That’s not to mention former All-MLB First Teamer Anthony Rendon. Take the LA Angels to win over Oakland predicted to a score of  6-3.
