The Oakland A’s and the New York Yankees will face off on Friday in Oakland. All MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Athletics got the win in the first game of the series and will look to build on that momentum tonight. AJ Griffin was strong on the mound last night and notched his second win of the season. Tonight Oakland will turn to Tommy Milone was has won 3 of his last 4 decisions. Milone is pitching to a 3.54 ERA 114 innings pitched this season.
The Yankees have the best record in baseball, but dropped the game on Thursday to the Athletics. The Yankees could not muster much on offense as they only had eight hits as a team. Ivan Nova will get the start tonight as he has allowed 128 hits in 116 innings of work this season.
Oakland is 8-1 in their last nine games as an underdog, 8-2 in their last 10 home games, and 5-1 in Milone’s last six starts. New York is 4-1 in their last five games following a loss, 36-15 in their last 51 games overall, and 22-8 in Nova’s last 30 starts as a favorite. New York is 16-5 in their last 21 games in Oakland.
We really like Milone and think Nova will pitch well against an A’s team that does not hit particularly good. Give us the under for total runs scored in this game so before wagering read sportsbook reviews.
