Joe D's MLB AL Total of the Month
Boston vs. Oakland,
07/04/2012 16:05 EDT,
Score: 2 - 3
Total: -110/+7½ Under
Today's winner is Boston/Oakland UNDER. This is my AL Total of the Month.
Just a note, if the site shows Morales pitching for the Red Sox, not to worry, Cook was an overnight change. Play it UNDER.
Boston is 2-4 on their current road trip, combining for just 12 runs in the six contests, with each game going UNDER. Over the last week, the Red Sox have gone flat, posting more than 3 RPG less than their season average. In Games 1 and 2 of this series, Boston totaled 3 runs scored, 13 hits, and just 2 RBIs. The team has sunken to 4th place in the AL East, 6 1/2 GB of 1st place New York. Today they face AJ Griffen. The RH has made quality starts in each of his L2 outings, pitching 12.0 innings, yielding just 2 ERs, with 8 Ks. The A's pitching staff has allowed 2 runs or less in 12 of their L19 games. Oakland has posted 9 runs against Boston in this series, however they rank 28th in the League in scoring at 3.77 RPG and 30th in Team BA at .224. Their lineup doesn't have a single batter hitting near .300. Their offense faces Aaron Cook. The RH is 2-1, including a 1-0, 0.00 road mark. In his career, Cook has a 1-0, 1.13 record vs. Oakland. The Athletics have played to 5 UNDERS in a row and 9 in their L10 outings. The UNDER is 4-0 the L4 meetings between these teams, 5-0 in the Red Sox L5 games played vs. RH starters, and 7-2 in the A's L9 games played at home. Take the UNDER. Thank you.
