I’m not sure what to make of the matchup here, as Ohtani always gives the Angels a shot when he’s on the mound and Cole Irvin’s been a nice piece in the A’s rotation. With that said, I’m going to side with the under. I think Ohtani comes to play here and Irvin matches zeroes with him to give us a 4-3 game at max. Give me the under here.
