Pick
COL (150) @ williamhill

The set-up: The Rockies have the odds stacked against them to make the playoffs, as they'll need to start stringing wins together immediately. One game at a time from here on out. The A's will be in the playoffs and while they're the "better" team on paper in this matchup admittedly, I think that this sets up great for the home side from a situational stand point. As note that Oakland has played ten games in the last seven days, including a double header in Seattle yesterday, losing the first game 6-5 in the ninth inning, before then clobbering the M's 9-0 in the night-cap. Can anyone say "letdown" spot here?

The pick: I think these starting pitchers are a "wash," so let's throw that factor out the window. Note though that the A's are just 2-7 in their last nine after an eight runs or greater in their last outing. Great value here on the home side!

This is a 10* COACH'S CORNER on the Colorado Rockies.

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.
