From the words of Sir Mix-a-Lot, double-up that is uh uh-uh. We’ve got Wednesday night’s game (10:07 p.m. ET, ESPN) between the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics on tap, following up on our award-atomizing preview of Tuesday’s competition. That game was not too tricky to handle; because pitcher Domingo German is overvalued in the marketplace the Yankees faded. Seems like we weren’t alone. The A’s have moved on Tuesday’s MLB odds board to as much as +110 in +140.
Wednesday’s game is going to be a bit harder. J.A. Happ (5.55 FIP) is beginning for the Yankees, although Mike Fiers (4.77 FIP) reacts for Oakland. It has an advantage for the A’s, although maybe not enough for us to put the home side as –110 favorites. Maybe that 9.5-run complete will be to our liking.
Maybe. Our lovable panel of quants could have other ideas, however:
FiveThirtyEight: Oakland 51 percent
Allergic Odds (utilizing SBR Odds Converter): –104
Jeff Sagarin’s Generic Total (approx.) : 9.25-9.5 runs
There is not enough space on the moneyline to pick either side in this battle, Since you may see. The complete is tight. There could be a small opening to urge the”under” to get a small amount, but we are going to call an audible and provide the”above” a chance instead, based on a few factors — including the weather. Wednesday’s game-time forecast calls for clear skies and temperatures at the mid-70s, which ought to help boost the conduct total in what is a pitcher’s park.
