A’s plus 1 1/2 runs even money (run line) at Mariners 

Of course I’ll need 1 1/2 runs, but I’m willing to toss out a peanut on the visiting A’s against the Mariners. 

Yes, I realize the A’s are the worst team in baseball at 10-39. But please hear me out.

The Mariners are pitching their weakest starter, lefty Marco Gonzales. He just got blasted by the Red Sox this past Wednesday giving up eight runs in 1 2/3 innings. Gonzales has a 6.10 ERA and 1.59 WHIP. 

Oakland hits better against southpaws, being average to above average in several major categories. The A’s also have a slightly better road record than they do at home. 

The A’s are going with Luis Medina, who is 0-2 with a 6.88 ERA. Now I’m not proclaiming Median to be good, but his ERA is skewed by his first start in which he surrendered seven runs in five innings to the Angels. Medina has made two starts since then and been respectable, allowing three earned runs while going six innings. 

Oakland is dropping way down in pitching class going from Luis Castillo to Gonzales. The A’s also have back from injury Seth Brown, who led the team in homers and RBI’s last season. 

I have my strongest NBA play of the conference championship round going today in Game 4 of the Celtics-Heat matchup. I am ranked No. 1 in the NBA and NHL as verified by VegasInsider.com. I also have a baseball premium sides play and WNBA totals play. I am 24-12 on my last 36 WNBA plays, including 2-0 this season.
