Profit: 12.90 - 6 = 6.9
I expect today`s game between the Athletics and the Red Sox in Oakland.
Yesterday we cashed easily in, as Oakland made a historically 20-2 win over Boston in the series opener. Today the over seems to be the better option.
The Athletics give the ball to A.J. Griffin (3-0 2.42 ERA). He has been quite solid so far this season, but faces an angry Red Sox team after an ugly loss yesterday, while Griffin also is coming off the DL for the first time in the majors and it will be interesting how he performs. Boston tries to counter with left hander Felix Doubront (10-6 4.79 ERA). He has been inconsistent all season long and struggled especially in his last three starts, posting a 8.16 ERA. It will be tough for the Red Sox to hang on and they better score some runs today, as their bullpen had a lot of work recently and they might get plenty of innings again with an inconsistent pitchers on the mound.
Pitcher Griffin and pitcher Doubront combined for an 4-2 over/under mark in their last three matches.
With that, look for both teams to score some runs, especially of the red-hot Athletics at home. Price at 2.15 for over 7.50 runs to win represents enough value for medium stakes.
