MLB Baseball Picks, Predictions vs. the Spread
Don’t sleep on Oakland
With baseball season upon us, it’s time to start looking for some teams that might provide good values through the early part of the season. If you would have been smart and quick with your MLB Baseball picks, you could have gotten Oakland’s season wins total at somewhere between 74-78, which is a huge value given the construction of that team. Now, it’s time to start hitting those overinflated lines. Few people understand how good this young Oakland team has a chance to be, and the early lines reflect that. They have been large underdogs more times than not so far in 2010, and their hot early start has netted some cash for smart bettors.
Oakland’s success lies in a number of different things. For one, the Athletics play excellent defense, with plus defenders all around the diamond. The team also has a number of undervalued pitchers, starting with Brett Anderson. A 22-year old with the “stuff” to be one of the top 10 arms in the Major Leagues, Anderson is constantly being undervalued in Oakland’s moneylines. If you get a chance to exploit that before people recognize just how good he is, then don’t hesitate.
There are a number of other teams that are looking undervalued to start the year, but Oakland is the most pronounced of those. It won’t be long before the linesmakers and the public recognizes that Oakland is quite possibly the class of the AL West, but that has not happened yet. Wundercat can tell you that over the next month or so, the defense, bullpen, and starting pitching of Oakland will carry that club to some surprising victories. Since the club figures to be lined underdogs for many of those games, it could be a profitable run if you will get on board the Athletics train.
