3 units on Game Total UNDER 7.5 -120 (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The wheels have really come off for the A's as they are just 9-29 over their last 38 games. The reason is quite simple - they don't score! They have scored just 106 runs in their last 38 games, or 2.8 a game. The Angels offense has suddenly gone cold as well plating just 34 runs in their last 11, or three runs a game. Now they face a hot pitcher in Greg Smith who has a 1.72 ERA in his last three starts. The A's must face John Lackey, who is amongst the AL Leaders in ERA. Lackey has allowed three runs or less in 14 of 18 starts, and this game looks to be similar to last night's 2-1 score, so we will play UNDER here.
