League: MLB, USA
OAKLAND ATHLETICS (-1.5) TO WIN AT ODDS 2.45Final result: 2 - 7
Profit: 0.00 - 9 = -9
The Athletics (65-55) should win the series opener against the Twins (50-70) in Oakland.
Oakland gives the ball to Brandon McCarthy (6-4 2.86 ERA). He has been solid nearly all season long and I expect another quality outing of him, knowing that the Twins scored three or less runs in 7 of their last 10 matches overall. Minnesota tries to counter with left hander Brian Duensing (2-8 4.69 ERA). He has been inconsistent all season long and I expect another tough outing for him on the road, knowing that he already lost heavily with 4-9 while lasting only 2.0 innings against the Athletics at home. Also note that Oakland hits lefties better than righties at .230.
Oakland Athletics are 19-7 in their last 26 home matches, while the Twins are just 1-9 in their last 10 matches overall.
With that, look for the trends to continue today. Price at 2.45 for the Oakland Athletics (-1.5) to win represents enough value for high stakes.
