The Oakland A’s and the San Francisco Giants close out their three-game series today in Oakland. Odds are found at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Athletics did all they could to try and come back in yesterday’s game, but ended up falling short as the game ended with the bases loaded. They were led on offense by Josh Reddick who had three hits including a homerun. In all the A’s scored 8 runs and blasted 15 hits in an impressive effort. They will send Brandon McCarthy to the mound this afternoon and he will do his best to avoid a sweep.
The Giants let a big lead slip away on Saturday but did enough to hold on for the win. Buster Posey led the offense with two hits including a homerun and they got enough out of starting pitcher Madison Bumgarner who have earned his ninth win of the season. The Giants will send ace Matt Cain to the hill today. Cain has struck out 100 batters in 100 innings and has won his last eight starts.
Oakland is 8-3 in their last 11 games against the N.L. West, 7-3 in their last 10 home games, and 7-0 in McCarthy’s last seven starts. San Francisco is 11-3 in their last 14 games as a favorite, 11-4 in their last 15 games against a team with a losing record, and 9-0 in Cain’s last nine starts. San Francisco is 10-4 in the last 14 meetings of these two.
This may be a surprise but we like Oakland and the money line in this game. We feel McCarthy is on the cusp of becoming a great picture and you will use this stage to showcase his ability so this is the pick for sportsbook betting.
