3 units on Oakland -114 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Jack Greinke spent most of last season pitching out of the bullpen, and was effective late in the year as a starter. That carried over into this season where he owned a 2.18 ERA through May 18. The mounting innings have led to a mounting ERA, as Greinke has pitched to a 5.70 ERA since. The Royals were 7-2 over his first nine starts, but have been just 4-9 since. Dallas Braden came out of the pen to pitch five strong innings allowing just one run and has been solid of late. The A's offense has awakened since scoring just nine runs in six games to score 27 over their last five and we like them in this one.
