New York Yankees vs. Oakland A’s Preview
The A’s have been on fore for the last few weeks even though they have dropped 2 in a row. They are still on the heels of the Texas Rangers in the AL West only trailing them by 1 game. The Yankees are in 2nd place in the AL East 2 games behind the Boston Red Sox and New York has won 2 straight. MLB lines have the A’s as the slight home favorite with a total of 7 runs.
In their last games the Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 2-1 and the A’s lost to the Chicago White Sox 4-2.
On the season the Yankees have an Over/Under record of 24-34 and a run-line W/L record of 35-28 and the A’s have an Over/Under record of 36-29 and a run-line W/L record of 36-29.
This season the A’s are 18-10 at home and the Yankees are 18-13 on the road.
Oakland has won 8 straight home games.
The Yankees have lost their last 4 games to the A’s in Oakland.
The reason the A’s are winning is because of their pitching, which has an ERA of 2.63 in their last 23 games.
CC Sabathia (6-4 3.74 ERA) goes for the Yankees tonight and in his last outing he went 9 innings and gave up 4 earned runs in a win over the Cleveland Indians.
For the A’s Bartolo Colon (7-2 3.14 ERA) gets the start and in his last outing he only gave up 1 earned run in 7 innings in a win over the Milwaukee Brewers.
Sabathia is 3-1 with a 1.94 ERA in his last 7 games facing the A’s and is 2-0 with a 2.49 ERA in his last 3 stats in Oakland.
Colon is 4-0 with a 0.90 ERA in his last 4 starts, but has not had much luck against the Yankees going 0-3 with an 11.05 ERA in his last 5 starts facing them.
The A’s are getting clutch hitting this season, as they only rank 19th in team batting average, but they rank 7th in runs scored.
In some betting trends for this AL match up the Yankees are 6-1 in their last 7 overall, 54-23 in Sabathia’s last 77 starts vs. a team with a winning record, and they have an Under record of 4-0 in their last 4 games.
The A’s are 19-7 in their last 26 overall, 8-1 in Colons last 9 home starts, and they have an Under record of 20-8 in their last 28 games.
In the last 5 games between these 2 teams in Oakland the total has gone Under 4 times.
Jason’s Pick: Going with the Yankees in this one, as I think Sabathia will have a good start and the New York bats will get to Colon.
