Oakland vs Los Angeles: Athletics Host Dodgers in MLB Interleague Action

Oakland vs Los Angeles: Athletics Host Dodgers in MLB Interleague Action
Major League Baseball has some interleague action mixed into the schedule over the next couple of days including the Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Dodgers battling in a mini two-game series by the Bay. The Athletics are setting their sights on next season while the Dodgers are in the heated duel with San Francisco in the NL West Division. First pitch flies at 10:05 PM ET on August 18, 2015, at Coliseum in California.

Los Angeles Dodgers: Kershaw has returned to ace status

Los Angeles enters with a 67-51 record and the Dodgers hold a three-game lead on the Giants. It’s been a mixed bag for LA since the All-Star break as the Dodgers are 16-12 over their last 28 games. It took a little longer than most hoped but Los Angeles stud LHP Clayton Kershaw has returned to MLB Ace form as he’s allowed just five runs over 55 innings pitched during his last seven starts. 

Oakland Athletics: MLB season that never got started nears an end

Stumbling out of the starting block with a 14-30 record back on May 22, the Athletics season was over shortly after it started. Oakland was 13.5 games behind Houston at that point and their current 51-69 mark still has the A’s 13.5 games out of the race in the AL West. Oakland is middle of the pack in offense and starting pitching but their 99 fielding errors is tops in the Majors and their 4.52 bullpen ERA is 28th worst in the league. LHP Felix Doubront (1-1 ERA 4.59) has allowed five runs, over 10.2 innings, in two starts since arriving from Toronto. He is over-matched here.

Athletics vs Dodgers Decision: We knew the prices would be expensive on this contest and they certainly are. We are OK with that as we’ll gladly add another chunk to the bankroll with a 500 unit wager on the Dodgers money line price posted on the MLB betting board at the Bodog sportsbook.
