Seattle at Oakland
Wednesday 09/08 10:05 PM Eastern
2 units on Oakland -200 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
Seattle scored more than four runs in a game for the first time in 15 games and it took five in one inning to do so. This is still a brutally bad offense. It was just the 14th time all year they reached seven or more runs. Does that mean they are hot? Hardly, after posting 7+ runs in their previous 13 times they have done so on the season, they have followed with averaging less than three! The Mariners are just 29-62 in their last 91 as a dog and 11-42 as a dog from -151 to -200. The A's are 142-69 at home vs teams below .400 on the road. They are also tough at home behind Gonzalez, who has led them to a 10-1 mark as a home favorite. I'll go with Oakland in this one.
