I’m back and here for you on a Sunday to get you another winning pick. Not to pat myself on the back (but I will pat myself on the back), I’ve been absolutely killing my baseball picks lately. I love finding a dog and getting you odds that start with a +-sign, and I have another one for you today.

Probable Pitchers: Athletics RH Chris Bassitt (4-3, 3.86 ERA) vs. Andrew Heaney (1-1, 4.99 ERA)
A’s vs. Angels, Chris Bassitt vs. Andrew Heaney, AL West rivals, two pitchers that strike out close to a batter per inning. Oakland is currently 7 games back from the division leader Houston Astros and Anaheim (LAA) is 10 back.
These two teams aren’t created equal though. The A’s have a +47 run differential while the Angels are +7. Since a series against these same Angels started on June 4th, the A’s are 16 and 9 in those 25 games. Over the same timeframe, the Angels are 13-11 in 24 games.

In the first two games of the series, Oakland has won both by a combined score of 11-2.
Heaney has been Jekyll and Hyde, throwing a gem, followed by a dud for 4 straight games now (he’s only started 6 since coming off the DL).
Bassitt hasn’t been great, but his 3.86 ERA puts him inside the Top 20 in AL ERA leaders. He has given up 3 or less earned runs in all but one of his 12 starts this season. Even though that one start was against these Angels, my money is on the Oakland Athletics moneyline today.
