The Los Angeles Dodgers and Oakland Athletic’s face off on Monday in an Interleague showdown at the RingCentral Coliseum
The Los Angeles Dodgers lost their first game of the season against the Rockies, but since that point they have won three games in a row. On Sunday the offense wasn’t all that impressive scoring four runs, but the pitching staff locked down giving up only two goals and that led to the victory. Justin Turner has been the best player for the Dodgers driving in four runs, but five different players have driven in at least three runs.
The Oakland Athletics have to be so happy that the Houston Astros have left town. The Astros were able to beat the A’s in four straight games and in each of the games the A’s gave up at least eight runs. In three of the four games, the A’s have scored two runs or less. Mitch Moreland and Chad Pinder have been the top players driving in two RBI’s.
Dustin May is going to get the start for the Dodgers and he has been lights out this year. Last season he finished with a 3-1 record and an ERA of 2.57.
Frankie Montas will get the start for the A’s and last year he was inconsistent finishing with a 3-5 record and an ERA of 5.60.
The Dodgers are 48-16 in their last 64 games overall. The Dodgers are 1-5 in their last six games overall. The A’s are 0-5 in their last five home games. The over is 9-4-3 in the Dodgers last 16 interleague games. The over is 5-0 in the A’s last five games overall. The Dodgers are 1-9 in their last ten meetings in Oakland.
Montas had issues last year and he is going to take after the rest of the A’s pitching staff, he is going to get lit up in this one. Look for plenty of scoring in this one and the over is going to have no issue cashing. Back the over.
