MLB Monday

62-42 +26,800

Tampa Bay Rays at Oakland A's
This is a match up that's going to be a preview of post season to come. The Rays sending David Price their top pitcher who is coming off a dominant win.  David has pitched into the 7 inning in last 7 starts, all of them quality games, 6 wins 1 ND loss. The most runs he gave up during that span was 3 run in one game, 2 runs twice, three games 1 run and he shut down Cleveland, just nasty.  For the home team A.J. Griffin with 6 starts he is 3-0 with 2.25 ERA and turning some heads. He was a sleeper taken in 13th round draft, but he moved quickly through Oakland's system His pitches are not lights out, but quality and he throws strikes in the low strike zone. He is using pretty good fastball, curve, slider and change. Also a stronge indication of good pitching is his outstanding strike to walk ratio, career number moving up in the minors was a strike out per inning to 2 walks in 9 inning. A.J. seems to love pitching in Oakland he's sporting a 0.98 WHIP.  Although their first meeting this season in Tampa netted 2 Over's and 1 Push this series in pitcher friendly Oakland the Total is pushed down to 6.5 and I expect the runs to come at a premium. Tampa playing 9 Under's out of last 10 and Oakland at home Under 32 to Over 18. This is a match up between #1 and #3 Under team in all of baseball.
Taking the Under.

Game Total UNDER 6.5 at +100 for 1 unit(L)
