Oakland vs. LA Angels, 05/14/2012 22:05
Total: -105/+7 Over
MLB FREE PICK: A's/Angels OVER 7
Even though the A's and Angels have both struggled offensively early this season, I think these two teams will easily surpass 7 runs tonight.
The A's will send out Tyson Ross, who is 0-3 with a 13.15 ERA and 2.385 WHIP in his last three starts. In his last two road starts, he has allowed 16 runs on 20 hits in just over 7 innings of work. I would be shocked if the Angels didn't put at least 5 runs in this game.
Los Angeles will counter with Dan Haren, who isn't quite himself. Haren has been dealing with a bad back, and has struggled as a result. He is just 1-2 with a 4.34 ERA in his last three starts, giving up 5 runs in each of his last two starts.
I wouldn't be surprised at all if these two teams didn't go over the posted total by the fifth inning. The OVER is 5-1-1 in Harens last 7 starts during game 1 of a series and 4-0 in Athletics last 4 during game 1 of a series. BET THE OVER!
