#917 ASA TOP PLAY ON 10* Oakland A's -110 over Tampa Bay Rays, Monday at 7:10 PM ET - Yesterday's ugly 8-1 loss at Baltimore ended a run of 13 straight wins for Oakland!  They are still the hottest team in the majors despite that defeat and are 6-2 in road games this season!  The Rays are 4-6 in home games this season.  Tampa Bay's slugging percentage the last 15 days ranks 20th in the majors while Oakland's, over that same period, ranks #1 in MLB with a .456 slugging percentage!  The A's have scored 6 runs per game during their 13-1 hot streak!  Tampa Bay has scored an average of only 3.5 runs in its 10 home games this season.  Oakland starter Sean Manaea had a rough first start this season but is coming off a 7-inning complete game shutout (was a game in a double header) and has allowed a total of only 3 runs in his last 3 starts combined!  Compare that to Tampa Bay starter Rich Hill allowing 4 earned runs in EACH of his 4 starts this season.  Big difference in the current trending of these two pitchers and Hill, 41 years old, appears to be nearing the end of the line in his MLB career.  He got roughed up in spring training too so his early season struggles should not come as a surprise and we do not foresee Hill bucking this trend anytime soon.  Manaea, on the other hand, is 10-4 with a 3.27 ERA and the 29-year old appears to be entering his prime at the MLB level.  Significant pitching edge here and this is the ideal spot to back the Athletics too after yesterday's 8-1 beating.  Per our computer math model, a road rout is in the offing  for this match-up Monday evening.  Look for the Athletics to make it 14 wins in 15 games as they immediately bounce back from Sunday's big loss!  We will grab the road team at a very short price on the money line in this one and bet OAKLAND

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
