After three quality starts in his first three starts of the season, Montas had his dud performance as the Houston Astros tagged him with his first loss of the season. He went 5.1 innings giving up 11 hits, five earned runs, and one home run while he only struck out one and walked four.
In four starts, Montas hasn’t had the swing-and-miss stuff owning just a 5.00 K/9, but he has done well not giving up free bases (2.33 BB/9) or the long ball (0.67 HR/9). He’s been able to work batters with a 78.3% LOB%, but once his .287 regresses some, we should see that number drop and his ERA of 2.67 fall more towards his 3.94 FIP.
Oakland has been playing losing baseball in the past week only winning two of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .210/.289/.410 to go with 21 extra-base hits and 24 RBI.
San Diego Padres
Ross was able to put in a quality start in his last outing but was tagged with his fourth loss of the season against the Atlanta Braves. He went six innings giving up three hits, three earned runs, and one home run while he struck out four and walked one.
In 14 starts, the veteran righty has remained healthy and is sporting a solid stat line as he owns a 9.00 K/9, 3.18 BB/9, 0.88 HR/9, to go with a 3.51 ERA and 3.60 FIP. His problem has always been his health, but he’s proving when healthy he can be an upper tier pitcher.
San Diego has played mediocre baseball in the last week winning three of their six contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .245/.286/.350 to go with 14 extra-base hits and 20 RBI.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Padres -117 & Athletics UNDER Team Total
Montas is coming off of a rough outing and it has yet to be foreseen how he will react after being thrashed like that. Ross has be solid and I feel more comfortable backing the veteran over the youngster, plus he’ll have a top-five bullpen backing him up. I expect San Diego to get the victory while they’re pitching stymies a struggling Oakland lineup.
