A’s plus $1.30 hosting Angels

It’s nice to see Garrett Richards return to the mound after being out since April 5 because of an irritated nerve in his right biceps.

It’s also nice to see that the linesmaker has overrated Richards and the Angels in this matchup giving value to the home underdog A’s.

Richards has only pitched once since his injury going two innings for Triple-A Salt Lake this past Wednesday. He’s going to be on a low limit pitch count and figures to be extremely rusty. Richards doesn’t have that strong of a history either against the A’s with a 4.20 ERA in 15 appearances. The Angels are 3-8 the past 11 times Richards has started versus Oakland.

Kendall Graveman goes for Oakland. He’s tough at home with a 3-0 mark and 2.70 ERA.

The Angels have more big name players in their lineup than the A’s. That partly explains their road favorite price. But do note the A’s are a very underrated 37-32 at Oakland Coliseum while the Angels are three games below .500 when playing on the road.
