I’m trying to understand the case that’s being made for the Dodgers, but in reality I don’t. The Dodgers have the top spot in the NL locked up at this point, by a wide margin. Oakland on the other hand is in a dogfight in the AL right now and depending how the last five games go, Oakland could sit in first themselves, or drop as far as 6th or 8th if things go into a free fall and nothing goes right. Julio Urias goes for the Dodgers here and he’s gotta be one of my least favorite pitchers to watch as there’s just been so much potential and hype around this guy and he gets how hard every single time I see him take the mound, win or loss. Sean Manaea has rebounded from a rough start to the year for Oakland and I just think that there’s a ton of value here with Oakland and the plus money. I’ll take the A’s on the money line as my premium pick for this game.
