THURSDAY NIGHT MLB TOP PLAY #7
Oakland Athletics (34-21) at Los Angeles Dodgers (39-17)

The Oakland A’s were able to grind out a huge win against the Dodgers on Wednesday, and I’m thinking another one could be in store on Thursday. Mike Fiers has an inflated ERA, but it hasn’t seemed to matter as the A’s just find ways to win with Fiers on the mound, going 8-2 in his 10 starts this season. Walker Buehler goes for the Dodgers here, and while he has been a solid arm for the Dodgers in his young career, something just seems off about him this season. And maybe it’s the blister issues he’s had but the Dodgers can say he’s good all they want, I’m going to continue assuming Buehler’s blister could potentially be an issue here. Either way, I think the A’s bring a ton of value to the table on Thursday, so give me Oakland and the heavy plus money as my premium pick for this game.
