OAKLAND: The A's have been a fantastic play on the road of late, winning six of their last seven away from Oakland.

They're also just 3-12 in their last 15 games when playing the opener of a new series.
OUR PREDICTION: The under is 13-3-1 in Weaver's last s17 home games versus the A's and 23-9-3 in his last 35 starts overall versus Oakland.
