I'm playing OAKLAND on the run-line (+1.5 runs) (2*) The Astros are off a hard-fought and perhaps costly 3-2 victory yesterday. The A's enjoyed a much-needed day off. While the Astros took two of three from the Angels, both wins came by a single run. These same pitchers opposed each other last week. Both pitched well. Odorizzi got roughed up in his last home start though. Irvin keeps the A's in the game nearly every time out. I say they give their hosts all they can handle in this one.
