NY YANKEES (+110) over Boston

No way the Red Sox should be favored in this matchup. Boston starter Felix Dubront has been lousy this season with a 1-2 record and 6.57 ERA and has gotten tattooed by New York giving up 17 runs in 14 inning against the pin stripers.Yankee starter CC Sabathia has been much better going 2-1 with a 4.10 ERA. Sox beat up on New York relievers after Michael "Pinetar" Pineda got tossed in the second inning last night but the Yankees have crushed lefty's this season going 7-1 and just hammered a much better lefty than Dubront in Boston's John Lester on Tuesday. Yankees take the series.

MLB Predictions

Oakland / Houston Under 7.5

These two teams played a three game series last weekend, with the Athletics sweeping the Astros at home. They move to Houston where we will see the same pitching match up we saw on Saturday afternoon when the As walked off with a 4-3 win. That game was 3-1 heading into the bottom of the 9th before the Astros bullpen blew it. Scott Kazmir will go for Oakland, while Brett Oberholtzer is on the mound for Houston. Kazmir is 2-0 with a 1.65 ERA, .173 OBA and 0.77 WHIP over his 4 starts. He held Houston to 6 hits and 2 earned runs with 5 strikeouts over 8 innings on Saturday. Oberholtzer is 0-3 in his 4 starts but still has solid numbers with a 3.04 ERA, .239 OBA and 1.14 WHIP. He went 5.2 innings vs the As on Saturday giving up 8 hits but just 1 earned run. He has allowed just 1 earned run in each of his last two starts. The UNDER is 7-2 in the A's last 9 games as a favorite and 5-1 in their last 6 vs a left handed starter. The UNDER is 7-1 in the Astros last 8 vs a left handed starter, 9-1 in their last 10 vs a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15, and 9-4 in their last 13 home games dating back to last season. The UNDER is also 5-0-1 in Oberholtzer's last 6 home starts and 8-0-1 in his last 9 starts overall. I'll take the UNDER 7.5 tonight as I expect another pitchers duel type game tonight between these two.
