MLB Betting Trends
The Athletics have won five of their last seven road games and they are 21-8 in their last 29 against a team with a losing record.
The Tigers are 13-28 in their last 41 home games against a winning team. They are also 11-25 in their last 36 against AL West opponents.
Montas has been very good on the mound in his limited starts. He should be able to work through this Detroit team that has been struggling at the plate. Hardy has some good numbers, but the Tigers bullpen isn’t terribly reliable. All things just point to Oakland picking up another victory.
The Pick: Oakland Athletics -115
