I am getting +195 on the A's to win. Is that a trap b/c I feel Feldman is crap and the bats for Texas are not he greatest. I understand Ross is no better at 2-7 but isn't +195 worth it. I love to get Feedback b/c I am seriously thinking about placing a bet w/ this NYY, and Nationals to get 1:6.40 payout. 

Opinions?

There's definitely value there. No doubt about it. Texas bats ARE the greatest though. The most potent lineup in the league. Hands down. No comparison. They're also getting pretty hot, as is the weather. The ball just FLY's down there in hot-behind-Texas this time of year. I think the best play is the OVER 11.

It IS hot here in Texas. I know Texas has the great lineup, hell beginning of the season I put 1000 on them winning their division and the Yankees to win theirs for a payout of 2to1. But alot of the games I have watched the batting is the reason they loss. They just can't produce the hits. They to bring it one day and not the other. And with Feldman on the mound I see A's playing like I know they can. Same reason I want to stay away from the Under/Over in their games. they burn me alot with their bats. Trust me I am not a hatter of the Rangers but when it comes to value (which I am learning more and more about) isn't it on the A's

Just lost my last leg of a parlay after buying a run and taking Rangers/Tigers Under 11.5 yesterday. Rangers are my team and our bats are on FIRE. Our number 9 hitter went 2 for 4 with a double and 2 RBI's if that tells you anything. I'd lean OVER like Vegas said. Feldman has been all season so if Oak is going to do damage, it wouldn't surprise me if it's against him. BOL.

I stand corrected on Ranger's bats. I guess then it comes down to Feldman and betting on A's for the +200. If I thought the game would be close the RL of -1.5 at -110 wouldn't be bad but my gut tell me it will be a blowout one way or other. Guess 2-7 A's pitchers also plays a roll in that juice. Plus it will be hot as hell in Arlington. Just might stay away and see how this game plays out. Still on the fence.

No doubt which side has the value.

The value is in Jokeland but the problem is they probably won't win the game.

If you were to place this bet at  +195 a thousand times you would be a long term winner so if you do it tomorrow, be consistent.

OAK +1.5 -115 isn't bad if you like Oakland.
