The Athletics are 7-1 in their last 8 during game 4 of a series, 8-3 in their last 11 games on grass and 2-9 in their last 11 Sunday games. The Angels are 4-0 in Heaneys last 4 Sunday starts, 9-3 in Heaneys last 12 home starts and 5-2 in Heaneys last 7 starts. The over is 29-13-2 in the last 44 meetings in Los Angeles and 6-2 in the last 8 meetings. The under is 5-2 in Angels last 7 overall. The over is 5-1 in Bassitts last 6 starts overall.
Bassitt has been one of the more consistent pitchers for the A's this season, and he's been at his best on the road where he has a 3.58 ERA and a .198 allowed batting average. Heaney has allowed 22 hits and 15 earned runs in his last 25.2 innings, and he has a 4.50 ERA through 16 innings at home this season. While he's still getting into the swing of things this season due to limited reps, it's tough to be confident in Heaney right now, especially when asked to lay juice. The value is with the A's and the plus money in this contest.
