Oakland Athletics vs San Diego Padres Prediction

I don't want to back the Oakland Athletics as much as the next guy. However, backing the Padres at this price is a bit insane when you consider how they've had issues stringing wins together all year and dating back to last season. Also, you can make a strong case JP Sears has been better than Randy Vasquez this season. I'm just saying there are a lot worse bets you can make on Tuesday than taking a shot with the Athletics and a chance to make 1.5 times your money. Give me the Athletics.
