8/9/2014 9:05 PM Reduced Baseball 970 Oakland Athletics* -1½ -105 vs Minnesota Twins
T May - R Listed J Samardzija - R Listed
Risking 2.00 to Win 1.90 (WINNER)
Today I am going with Oakland on the Run Line for 2 units. They are facing the Twins who are starting Trevor May who has been in the Minors for 7 years. I expect him to give a good showing but I don't think he will be much of a match for baseballs best team. To add to the challenge Oakland is starting Jeff Sasmardzija who has been excellent since switching to the As, leading them to wins in 5 of his 6 starts since the trade. Samardzija is limiting opponents to a .200 average and he isn't walking very many batters, which usually leads to a win when you have a team with Oaklands firepower at the plate.
Since the All star break Oakland is 12-8 and they have won 10 of those games by 2 or more runs. I expect they will get number 11 tonight facing a less experienced pitcher and a Twins team that has a losing record on the road.
