MLB Same Game Parlay Odds & Picks: Angels vs. Athletics
Los Angeles Angels vs. Oakland Athletics
- Leg 1: Under 7.5 (-110)
- Leg 2: Cole Irvin over 4.5 strikeouts (-102)
- Leg 3: Jose Suarez under 4.5 strikeouts (-116)
The Athletics shipped some more players off at the trade deadline, including part of the starting rotation. One pitcher they kept is Cole Irvin, and he’s on a great run.
Over his last six starts, he has a 2.03 ERA, opposing batters are hitting .176, and after the A’s lost in eight straight of his starts, he’s 4-2. He’s coming off the previous start against the Angels where he allowed just two earned. Unfortunately, he did not receive any run support and took the loss, and it’s something he’s used to as he gets just 2.87 runs per game.
Jose Suarez has pitched back-to-back shutouts for the first time this year. One of those was against the A’s as the opposing pitcher against Irvin as he earned the win.
One thing not to expect from him is a long outing because even if he’s pitching well, he usually gets the hook, as he’s made it through the sixth inning just once this season.
Both lineups are not hitting well right now as the Angels have scored four or more runs in three of their last eight games while Oakland has done it in two of their previous seven. Expect the same low-scoring matchup.
