3 units on Los Angeles -160 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
Joel Piniero has not fared well against the Athletics having not posted a victory in five straight starts vs. the A's. He isn't likely to get a ton of run support today, but I still like him to get that win. Lucky for him, Oakland simply can't hit this season. They are batting .236, scoring just 3.6 runs per game on the road. That has led to a 5-12 mark. Oakland starts Trevor Cahill who owns a 6.75 road ERA. The Angels' bats came alive last game as they won 12-3. That's a good sign for this team as they are 35-13 the past two seasons after a game in which they scored 8+ runs. They are also 16-4 over that span after a win by 6+ runs. I like Piniero and the Angels to break through here.
