Oakland A's pitching keying hot under run

May 23, 2013 |
Once upon a time, the Oakland Athletics were cashing in for over bettors at a record setting pace. The A's started the season with a blistering 25-7 O/U record and were as close to a sure thing as you could find.

Oakland has decided to flip the script on us and has posted an under record of 9-2 in its past 11 games, including two in a row heading into action Friday.

Pitching was an especially soft spot for Oakland early on, but oh how things have changed. The staff had been good for the first five games of their previous 11, but over the last six, the ERA is an amazing 1.69.

There is a good opportunity for some more under bets in the future as the A's open a three-game series versus the Houston Astros Friday. The Astros are 10th in the American League in batting average (.246) and 14th in on-base percentage (.306).
