San Francisco Giants DFS SPIN

LaMonte Wade went 1-for-1 with a go-ahead two-run homer in the ninth inning of Saturday's 6-5 win over the A's. Wow. The A's held multiple three-run leads in this contest, but the Giants never caved and kept punching back. Eventually, Wade landed the biggest blow of them all, pinch-hitting for Darin Ruf and proceeding to launch a go-ahead two-run homer off Lou Trivino with one out in the ninth inning. On the whole this season, Wade is slashing .251/.324/.530 with 16 home runs and 41 RBI across 71 games played.

Oakland A’s DFS Spin

Seth Brown went 1-for-4 with a two-run single and a steal in Saturday's loss to the Giants. Brown hit a two-run single off Kevin Gausman in the first inning. The 29-year-old outfielder has shown off decent pop in his big league opportunities this season, smashing 16 home runs across 92 games played, but that power comes with a dismal .206 average and .274 on-base percentage. Brown has bounced between Triple-A and the bigs throughout the summer, but has enough power to at least warrant the occasional streaming look so long as he is on the A's major league roster.

Giants vs. A’s Betting Prediction

The under is 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these two teams and is 4-1 in the last five meetings in Oakland. The under is also 5-2 in the Giants’ last seven games overall, is 3-1-1 in their last five road games versus a right-handed starter and is 5-2-1 in their last eight road games. On the other side, the under is 26-11-1 in the A’s last 38 interleague home games, is 3-1-2 in their last six games overall and is 10-3-1 in their last 14 games after allowing five runs or more in their previous game.
