A's are on fire right now and have the division in their sights. Oakland also knows that they gotta keep up with Baltimore and stay ahead of the surging Angels & Rays.

Texas isn't playing to win right now, they're playing not to lose. Kinda like playing that prevent defense, it only prevents you from winning.

You get hella good value in taking the A's. Wouldn't u rather get +180 on a team thats playing good, rather than pay -190 on a team that's playin bad right now???

OAKLAND ATHLETICS +180

Totally agree, especially as it's getting to be +190 on some books. Blackley beat Darvish @Tex last time he faced them, I think for the price it's more than reasonable to take a flier on him against Harrison. A's are hot and these teams are far too close to pay -200 on Texas.
