I'm recommending a small wager on the A's Sunday over the Royals. They have beaten Kansas City by identical 2-1 scores the last two days, and for me I cashed a winning Under ticket Friday. That's only a part of my perfect 9-0 run the last two days with premium releases as May has been quite kind to those following me. In fact, I have cashed 70% of my selections the last four weeks (96-45-1), which comes out to a $31K profit!
Here are my keys to the game:
1. Royals Not Hitting: The Royals have lost 9 of 12. In those nine losses, they have scored a total of 21 runs and consider in one of those games, they scored six times. In their last five losses, they have scored a total of just eight times. Last night saw them go just 1 for 7 at the plate with runners in scoring position. The road is typically not the place a team is going to break out of an offensive slump.
2. Pitching Matchup - You definitely have to like AJ Griffin over Luis Mendoza. Griffin has been sharp this month, turning in a 2-1 record and 1.74 ERA. His WHIP is 1.016. He just beat Texas by allowing only one run over seven innings. His KW ratio was an oustatanding 8-0. Not only are the A's 18-6 with Griffin on the mound the last two years, but they are 11-1 when they are off a win and he's pitching. For the Royals, Luis Mendoza has only one win on the season and an ERA north of 6.00.
3. X-Factor - Oakland is 32-11 as a favorite of -125 to -175 the last two seasons.
Selection: The play is on the Oakland A;s (1*).
