Ricky's 8* play on Oakland.
Key Angle: It's important to remember that Ricky never makes a bet on any game based on just one angle. In order to make the grade, all his premium picks must meet several important criteria. He doesn't share all his secrets within his analysis, instead he chooses to reveal only the angle that he feels is the most significant. Here in this game the recent history of these two teams is particularly significant.
- The Astros are 5-13 in their last 18 games as an underdog.
- The Astros are 2-8 in their last 10 games following a win.
- The Astros are 1-6 in the last seven meetings in Oakland.
Verdict: The Athletics have a decided advantage with a superior starting pitcher.
