**NEW** NFL PROP BETS HIT THE BOARD!
The Iceman is no stranger to success when it comes to FUTURE/PROP bets, as evidenced by his PERFECT 3-0 sweep with props @ SUPERBOWL XLVII, his 11-4 record with NHL playoff series bets, or his complete domination of the FIFA WORLD CUP (34-11 +$7,354).
HISTORY WILL SURELY REPEAT ITSELF on the gridiron in 2014!
This is a Free #MLB play on the Oakland #A's -1.5.
Oakland lost Game 1 of this series in Houston, but I like their chances of responding with a convincing victory here in Game 2.
Jeff Samardzija will toe to slab for the visitors, and he's certainly making the most of his time in Oakland so far. Samardzija (4-8, 2.80 ERA) allowed one run on five hits over eight innings in a 13-1 win over the Astros his last time out. Jose Altuve leads the AL, batting .343, but he's just 3-for-15 with five strikeouts versus Samarzdzija. Jeff owned Houston in the last meeting, and I think it's doubtful that a change of venue will yield any better result for the Astros.
Houston will hand the ball to Scott Feldman, who was rocked by Oakland last week. Feldman (4-8, 4.60 ERA) allowed six runs on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings in the loss opposite Samardzija last Thursday. He's 0-3 with a 6.85 ERA in July, and his numbers at home are not very impressive, with an ERA of 5.37 in nine starts. \
Derek Norris is 4-for-5 with a home run and two RBIs versus Feldman, while Jed Lowrie is 6-for-12 with two doubles versus the right-hander.
