3 units on Oakland +135 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: LOSS
Both of these pitchers are coming off the DL so it will be interesting to see how well they fare. Oakland is averaging 4.7 runs per game this season - more than Seattle. They have won six of seven, holding opponents to just 2.6 runs per game over that stretch while scoring 6.9 per game. Over the past five seasons, teams allowing under 4.3 runs per game, after allowing 4 runs or less in three straight games hit at a 59% clip. This is a good matchup for Oakland as the As are 12-4 this season vs. teams alllowing under 4.8 runs per game and 11-4 vs. teams with an OBP of .330 or worse. They are also 22-7 the past three seasons after allowing 3 runs or less in three straight games.
