Texas at Oakland

Wednesday 04/08 10:05 PM Eastern

1 unit on Texas +143 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.43)  RESULT: LOSS

It's only the first week of the season and Oakland already has problems. Oakland was limited to five hits in a 3-1 loss the last game by four Texas pitchers, and right fielder Craig Gentry is hitless in his first seven at-bats with three strikeouts. With center fielder Coco Crisp sidelined for two months due to elbow surgery, the A's are searching for a leadoff hitter. The Athletics are 2-10 against a left-handed starter and face southpaw Ross Detwiler. The Rangers’ top of the order, Leonys Martin, Elvis Andrus and Prince Fielder, was a combined 6-for-12 in Tuesday’s 3-1 victory. The Rangers gave manager Jeff Banister his first major league victory and have won eight of their last 11 games in Oakland. Plus the Rangers are 11-4 in their last 15 games as an underdog. Take Texas.
