MLB Games To Bet On 6/5/15
Games to consider laying money on today on the MLB are a game that will pit the Oakland Athletics against the Boston Red Sox and the Detroit Tigers looking to get back on track against the Chicago White Sox.
A’s Vs. Red Sox
The A’s are coming into this three-game series with the Boston Red Sox red hot. They have won four straight games, are 9-3 in their last 12 games and are favorites to win this one with a –116 moneyline. Oakland has been lifted by a hot starting rotation who has averaged an ERA of 1.36 over their last 12 games. Tonight, Oakland will be starting Scott Kazmir. Kazmir has contributed to the previously mentioned low ERA average, but has not won a game in that stretch. In fact, he has lost his last five starts.
Boston will be looking to snap a losing streak as they kick off their series with Oakland. Boston will be hosting the As and are 4-2 over their last six home games. They will be countering Kazmir with Wade Miley. Miley is coming off the worst outing of his season with an 8-0 loss to the Texas Rangers. He did lead the Sox to a 2-0 victory over Oakland earlier in the season, though.
The total is set at eight runs. Both teams hit the OVER in their last outing. Oakland trends toward the UNDER when playing against Boston though. Ten of the team’s last 13 games against Boston have hit the UNDER. The Red Sox trend UNDER at home with 12 of their last 17 home games hitting the UNDER mark.
Tigers Vs. White Sox
If the Tigers fail to snap their losing streak tonight at eight games, it will be the longest losing stretch for the club since 2005.
The White Sox are the favorites with a moneyline of –125.
The White Sox will be starting Jose Quintana. Quintana is 3-7 this season. Quintana is experienced playing against Detroit. The two teams have met six times this season over two series. Quintana got to start in a game in each of those series and took a loss in both.
The Tigers will be sending Kyle Ryan to the mound. Ryan is a rookie and a big x-factor in this game.
The game’s total is set at 8.5 runs. The White Sox hit the UNDER in their last game, while Detroit hit the OVER. Both teams, though, trend toward the UNDER. Seven of Detroits last nine road games have hit the UNDER, while Chicago has stayed UNDER in 12 of their last 18 games.
