Angels vs Athletics MLB Betting Analysis
The L.A. Angels are in all sorts of trouble on Tuesday night. Yes, the Angels can hit, but their rotation is a mess. The Angels called up Nick Tropeano to throw on Tuesday night. Tropeano had a breakout season in 2016.
Since then, he’s had issues. The Athletics should dominate Tropeano. He hasn’t thrown in The Show since last August. More importantly, the A’s are hot after winning their tenth straight on Monday night while Frankie Montas has been sensational this season. Oakland beats the Angels by at least 2 runs.
