Point Spread: 1.50 | -130.00 Oakland (Away)
Oakland's 1-7. Houston is 6-1. Clearly the A's are the hungrier dog in this fight, but in a contest which I see being competitive, maybe even decided in extra innins, I'm going to lay the price and grab the 1.5 runs and the A's on the RUN LINE. If Oakland loses by 1 run, we're still going to win our bet. Both Manaea and McCullers Jr. struggled in their repsective openers, making the starters a wash. Oakland' line-up has been drastically underperforming and I expect that trend to end here.
T.M. Prediction: 6-3 Oakland.
