Oakland vs Boston
It's hard to bet the under of a Red Sox game as they are putting up runs more than Sheen blows lines, however this is a good chance for an under to come in. The weather is optimal for a strong pitching performance as its cold, wet and wind is blowing in at a 8mph clip. As a hitter, no good. The Oakland A's are hitting .184 off lefthand starters throughout the season. The kid Parker looks sharp and it will be the first time that the Sox see him.
The umpire overall the past 3 seasons is a staggering 18-32 for the under in the American League. I can tell you that cold, wet and rainy is a good opportunity to bet the under. RH vs LH starters he's at 68%.
Both ratings for pitchers (Happy Kane) are good. No Youkilis in the lineup.
Oakland is the least productive offense this season.
Oddsmakers know one of these games will be under as Boston's torrid offense will slow down soon. I have it happening tonight.
LARGE PLAY: UNDER 9 OAKLAND/BOSTON
