Oakland over L.A. Angels

4:07 PM EST. This is an interesting spot to find Roansy Contreras (RHP - ANA), who will start today’s game, and if reports are to be believed, he will not just be opening; he will be stretched out by manager Ron Washington, who said he wants the former Pirates closer to cover four or five innings in this game. This year, in 30 IP, Contreras has an xERA of 4.79 with 29 Ks to 13 BBs.

Today, Oakland turns to Joey Estes (RHP - OAK), who allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out one over six innings in a no-decision vs. Minnesota last Friday. It was a quality start for Estes, and now he brings a 31/10 K/BB ratio over 40.2 IP into this start.

The A’s have lost five in a row, they are 12-24 on the road, and they have dropped the first two games of this series, yet they are a short price today as an underdog, which stands out like a sore thumb because seriously, who the f**k is betting the A’s today? That said, even though the A’s are in the midst of a rough patch, they scored five runs yesterday and had a lead in that game. That said, the Angels are either a sucker bet, or the books are sleeping at the wheel. We’ll side with the former and back the A’s one more time.
