The Oakland pitching staff has a 3.31 ERA, a 1.20 WHIP, and a .232 opponent batting average this season. The Athletics offense has scored 69 runs with a .209 batting average and a .278 on base percentage. Sean Murphy is batting .242 with three home runs and 11 RBI’s for the Athletics this season. The projected starter for Oakland is Daulton Jefferies, who is 1-2 this season with a 1.17 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP over 15.1 innings pitched.
The San Francisco Giants are 12-5 this season and have won four games in a row. San Francisco defeated Milwaukee 4-2 in a one game series on Monday. Prior to that, San Francisco swept the Nationals by winning all three games in DC. The San Francisco pitching staff has a 2.42 ERA, a 1.10 WHIP, and a .222 opponent batting average.

The projected starter for San Francisco is Carlos Rodon, who is 2-0 this season with a 1.06 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP over 17 innings pitched.
Oakland is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a left-handed starter and 1-4 in their last 5 interleague games. The under is 6-2 in Oakland’s last 8 games. San Francisco is 4-1 in their last 5 Tuesday games and 37-14 in their last 51 games. The over is 5-1 in San Francisco’s last 6 Tuesday games. Oakland is 2-5 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
The Giants come into this game as big favorites, but I could really see this game going either way. Jefferies has been sharp to start the season and has only allowed two earned runs. I think this is a spot where the Athletics have value and you are getting them at a great price. I would take +1.5 and Athletics to win.
