---Oakland A's -123---

This is a great price to back the A's at home after losing Game 1 of their 3 game series vs the Red Sox. Oakland certainly has to like the edge they have on the mound. Boston's Jon Lester has an 8-5 record, but his 4.60 ERA and 1.366 WHIP show he's fortunate to not be below .500 on the season. Lester has been at his worst on the road, where he's supporting a 5.73 ERA and 1.528 WHIP in 12 starts. Oakland will counter with A.J. Griffin, who is 7-6 but with a stronger 3.94 ERA and a solid 1.137 WHIP. In his two career starts at home vs the Red Sox, he's allowed a total of three earned runs on seven hits over 13 innings of work.

Adding more value here is the fact that Griffin is 15-5 over his last 20 starts when he takes the mound at night, 14-3 in his last 17 starts at home and 14-2 over his last 16 in the second half of the season. BET THE A'S!
