If familiarity breeds contempt, there should be animosity aplenty on Saturday when the Los Angeles Angels and the Oakland Athletics meet at O.co Coliseum.
The Angels will pin their hopes on the pitching of left hander Tyler Skaggs in this game. Skaggs has a 4-2 record and a 3.97 ERA this season.
Meanwhile, it’ll be Tom Milone who starts for the Athletics. Left hander Milone is 3-3 with a 3.50 ERA so far this season.
Oddsmakers currently have the Athletics listed as 123-moneyline favorites versus the Angels, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.
Last time out for Los Angeles, they were a 9-5 loser as they battled the Athletics on the road. Moneyline bettors who got the Athletics at -118 were rewarded, while the 14 combined runs moved the game OVER for totals bettors.
