The Oakland A’s have won 19 of their last 25 games overall. Coming off back-to-back losses for the first time since June 29-30, I have the A’s bouncing back with a victory in Game 1 of this series with Toronto Thursday.
The A’s clearly have the edge on the mound in this one with Bartolo Colon, who is 7-8 with a 3.78 ERA and 1.261 WHIP in 20 starts this season. Toronto’s Henderson Alvarez is 7-7 with a 4.43 ERA and 1.365 WHIP in 20 starts.
The Blue Jays remain without their best hitter, Jose Bautista, who is on the DL with a wrist injury. Toronto has really missed Bautista of late, losing four straight while scoring a combined seven runs (1.8/game) in the process.
The Blue Jays are 6-20 in their last 26 road games vs. a team with a winning home record. Toronto is 1-5 in its last 6 games as a road underdog of +110 to +150. The A’s are 20-6 in their last 26 games vs. a right-handed starter. Oakland is 36-17 in its last 53 games as a home favorite of -110 to -150. Bet the A’s Thursday.
