Oakland vs Kansas City
Oakland Athletics (31-31) will host Kansas City Royals (21-41).
The home team is set for around 1.60 favorite but totals are in fact the option I am interested in. I mean on over the totals. We have 8.5 and IMO this is low and good to try with over given on the starting pitchers in this game.
Those pitchers are: Paul Bleckburn for Oakland and Jason Hammel for Kansas City. I can't trust to either of them.
Hammel wasn't too bad in last couple starts but with overall 2-5 and with 5.02 ERA he has pretty modest season. On the road he was even weaker with 5.53 ERA. Just recently he pitched against Oakland and allowed 3 runs on six innings that wasn't bad but I count Oakland will make adjustments now and will read him way better this time.
On the other side this Blackburn guy is surprise that will pitch here. Namely he was in rotation last season while this season so far he was on the disabled list and now will have season debut. I simply must question his form cause he is even without pitching time in minors league (just few innings). He could be in problems here.
