From the words of Sir Mix-a-Lot, uh double-up uh-uh. We have 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 trailer of Tuesday’s contest. That game wasn’t too tough to deal with; the Yankees disappeared because starting pitcher Domingo German is overvalued from the marketplace. Seems like we weren’t alone in that assessment. The A’s have proceeded to as low as.
Wednesday’s game will be a bit harder. J.A. Happ (5.55 FIP) is starting for the Yankees, although Mike Fiers (4.77 FIP) reacts for Oakland. It’s an advantage for the A’s, although not enough for us to put the home side in our MLB picks like –110 favorites. Perhaps that 9.5-run complete will be more to our liking.
Maybe. Our 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
As you may see, there is space on the moneyline to choose on either side in this struggle. The complete is fairly tight. There might be a small opening to recommend the”under” to get a small sum, but we’re likely to call an audible and provide the”over” a chance instead, based on a few factors — such as the weather. Wednesday forecast calls for mostly clear skies and temperatures at the mid-70s, which should help enhance the run total in what is a pitcher’s park.
Free MLB Pick: Over 9.5 (–104) at Pinnacle
