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 3-8 in their last 11 games following a win.
- The Astros are 4-10 in the last 14 head to head meetings.
- The Athletics are 43-16 in their last 59 games following a loss.
Verdict: The A's have the more experienced starting pitcher.
