5/9 MLB Free Betting Pick Angels VS Athetics

Los Angeles +125  Oakland  -135  O/U 8.5

The Angels and Athletics will square off for the third series this season. The teams have played 7 times this season. They played the first series of the season in Oakland and split the series, each team winning twice. The rematch in Los Angeles didn’t go well for Oakland as the Angels swept the 3 games series. Coming in to this series back in Oakand both teams are struggling under .500 and are trying desperately to not let the first place Houston Astros get too far ahead in the standings. Los Angeles is 16-17 on the season and the total is 13-17-3. The Oakland Athletics are 14-17 on the season and the total is 17-14.

For This RideTheHothand Free Pick we are going after the total. These 2 teams both have middle of the road offenses that feature 2 hitters in the middle of the lineup that can hit a bunch of home runs and knock in alot of runs. Mike Trout, Albert Pujols, Yonder Alonso and Khris Davis can all do some damage and make these 2 teams able to put up some runs if the other guys can get on base. That leads us to the pitchers. The Angels are going with Alex Meyer who has an ERA of 9.39 this season in 2 starts this season and is still fighting his control. Meyer has the bad habit of giving up walks and can’t seem to have any quick innings. On the other side Jharel Cotton is even worse. Cotton has given up 15 walks this season which has led directly to him giving up 21 runs and an ERA close to 5. Both of these pitchers struggle with their command, put a lot of guys on base and that’s not good for low scoring games. THE PICK: OVER 8.5
