As southpaw starter Luzardo will finally return to action Friday on 10 days' rest. Over his seven appearances (five starts) this season, Luzardo has posted a 3.74 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 34:13 K:BB over 33.2 innings. His best starts have been at home where he owns a 2-0 record along with a stingy 1.06 ERA. He gets my support here today. Note: SAN DIEGO is 5-18 against the money line in road games against left-handed starters over the last 2 seasons.
OAKLAND is 21-4 against the money line in home games vs. a bad bullpen that blows 38% or more of their save opportunities over the last 2 seasons.
MLB Road teams (SAN DIEGO) - good NL offensive team ( 4.7 or more runs/game) against a team with a very good bullpen (ERA 3.33 or less), with a bad bullpen that blows 38% or more of their save opportunities are 11-45 L/5 seasons for a go against 81% conversion rate for bettors.
