The San Francisco Giants will host the Oakland Athletics for the second leg of their back-to-back this Wednesday from Oracle Park. San Francisco squeaked out a one-run victory last night, 2-1.

Athletics Betting Preview 

Oakland moved to 28-75 after losing to San Francisco. The Oakland offense is scoring 2.81 runs per game, while batting .222, with a .303 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 6.00 ERA, with a 1.62 WHIP. Brent Rooker, Ryan Noda, and Esteury Ruiz all missed the Houston series, and there’s a chance they miss this crosstown battle as well. Seth Brown homered in the game three victory, and he’s up to ten home runs and 29 RBI for the season.

Hogan Harris (2-4, 6.11 ERA, 46 Ks) will make the start for Oakland. The rookie lefty had a good outing against Houston last time out, striking out six in six innings, while holding them to two runs. Harris still took the loss, but he’ll now have to cross the bridge and avenge a pair of tough road outings here that saw him allow eleven runs combined. 

Giants Betting Preview

San Francisco comes in at 55-47 after defeating Oakland. The San Francisco offense is scoring 4.81 runs per game, while batting .250, with a .326 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.89 ERA, with a 1.29 WHIP. Mike Conforto has recorded a hit in seven of the previous ten games, and he leads San Fran in home runs (13) and RBI (51). J.D Davis leads SFG in hits (81), with twelve homers and 48 RBI. Wilmer Flores homered in the loss to Detroit, and he’s posting splits of .295/13/32.

Alex Wood (4-4, 4.99 ERA, 51 Ks) will take the mound for San Francisco. The tenth-year lefty had a tough time in DC last week, allowing five runs through four innings, en route to his fourth loss of the season. Wood now enters an ideal spot to bounce back and turn things around, as he’s struggled this season with vulnerability. 

Oakland vs San Francisco Trends

Oakland is 51-48 against the spread this season, with a 51-44-7 O/U record. San Francisco is 48-53 ATS this year, with a 44-54-3 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

San Francisco got out of there by the skin of their teeth last night, and with less of an advantage on the mound here in game two, I think their bats wake up and rise to the occasion. With Alex Wood starting, the Giants won’t be able to lean on the mound, and the production will be needed. Back San Francisco to take this battle in the Bay.

Corey’s Pick Giants -1.5
