Angels starter Tyler Skaggs has dominated Oakland in a pair of victories this season, allowing zero earned runs in the victories. Several hitters in the Angels lineup have had success against Oakland journeyman Edwin Jackson. The Athletics are overdue for a late-season regression and it should start with this series following Friday night's 4-3 defeat. Look for Los Angeles to post another win Saturday amid a relatively thin price.

This is a critical series for the Angels if they hope to gain ground in the AL wild-card race and they are offered at a thin price Friday against the overachieving Athletics. Oakland could be in for a letdown spot following a 7-1 homestand that included a split with the Dodgers in an exciting interleague series. Mike Trout, who has been battling a sore wrist, will reportedly return to the lineup for the Angels. Oakland starter Brett Anderson is 1-3 with a 3.76 ERA in his career against Los Angeles.

This appears to be a spot value play Thursday on a Miami team that is 5-4 against the Phillies this season and could be catching a favorable matchup. Phillies starter Nick Pivetta has allowed nine earned runs in two outings since the All-Star break and he has a 6.56 career ERA against the Marlins. Miami starter Pablo Lopez has shown some promise and has gone at l east five innings in all five of his big-league starts.

Tue 7/31

The Rays have managed a .500 record despite numerous personnel issues and their unorthodox approach to patching their rotation. Even so, they are major sellers at the trade deadline and have already parted with several components, including starter Nathan Eovaldi. Their roster could be further decimated by first pitch Tuesday, which could result in an emotional letdown. The Angels have a similar record but have been playing well of late. Tyler Skaggs has been rock-solid in his past eight starts, and also shut down the Rays in a prior meeting this season. Back the favorite.
