The Oakland A’s and the San Diego Padres face-off in game three of their weekend series today in Oakland. All odds for all games can be found at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Athletics do not have the players to compete for a postseason berth, but they do come out and play hard and every game. On Saturday they scored six runs on eight hits in a win over the Padres. Their bullpen was strong and secured the win and they will be looking to get another one today behind the arm of Bartolo Colon. Colon has won his last two starts and is pitching to a 4.21 ERA in 87 innings of work thus far this season.
The Padres had their opportunities to come up with a win on Saturday, but were unable to do so and lost in Oakland. They scored 4 runs on 4 hits which was not enough against an opportunistic Oakland squad. The Padres will start Clayton Richard in today’s game, the youngster has had a tough season thus far. He has allowed 88 hits in 83 innings of work which is good enough for just a4.30 ERA.
While both of these pitchers definitely have ability, they are struggling to show their true potential this season. Because of this the over/under number is very attractive for us and we will take the over in total runs scored but before doing this read online sportsbook reviews.
