Oakland Athletics vs. San Francisco Giants MLB Prediction:
This is a matchup between 2 of the better teams in baseball. I have a hard time betting against the Giants given how well they have been playing.
I feel that the Giants are the better team and I like the fact they are playing at home. Oakland is very impressive as well, but not on the same level as San Francisco.
It is hard to tell what kind of pitcher Sammy Long will be because he has not been in the rotation for that long. The A’s have the advantage with Irvin, but I feel that the Giants will be able to hit him around and do enough to win.
I like the Giants on the moneyline.
