4* BLOCKBUSTER OVER/UNDER TOTAL ANNIHILATOR

---A's/Pirates UNDER 7.5---

I was all over the UNDER in last night's game and I'm back on it again tonight, as there are several factors pointing to a low scoring game. Not only will the wind be blowing in, but tonight's home-plate umpire Wally Bell has a bigger than normal strike zone. On top of that PNC Park is one of the more pitcher-friendly venues in the league.

Which is why I'm not reading too much into the numbers of tonight's starters. Oakland's Daniel Straily and Pittsburgh's Gerrit Cole both have an ERA near 4.00, but have shown flashes of what's to come later on in their careers. Straily allowed just one hit in seven shutout innings vs the Cubs in his most recent start and Cole hasn't allowed more than 3 earned runs in any of his five starts. BET THE UNDER!
