Oakland A’s @ Los Angeles Angels
Game Time Wednesday, Aug 12, 2020, 4:10 PM ET
Current Odds A’s -103, O/U 9½ @ 5Dimes

The Oakland A’s had won 9 straight prior to dropping the first 2 games of this series to the Los Angeles Angeles.

They’ll be hungry to avoid the sweep in Game 3 tonight.

I like their chances with Chris Bassitt toeing the rubber for the A’s. Bassitt is 1-0 with a 1.08 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 3 starts for the A’s this year.

He’ll be up against Griffin Canning, who is 0-2 with a 1.60 WHIP in 3 starts for the Angels. He has already walked 10 batters in 14 1/3 innings as control has been an issue.

Take Oakland.

PlayA’s ML (-103)
Kansas City Royals @ Cincinnati Reds
Game Time Wednesday, Aug 12, 2020, 6:37 PM ET
Current Odds Reds -107, O/U 10; @ 5Dimes

This game will be a 3* regular play for us tonight as the game fits the solid 11-0 totals system below.

What we want to do is play the under for home teams that won last night as a home favorite at -140 or more despite having 3 or more errors, vs an opponent like KC that lost by 1 run despite scoring 5+ run on 10+ hits.

Miley starting for the Reds has gone under in 3 of 4 vs KC. Keller for KC Has pitched under in his last 4 road starts.

In the series these two have gone under in 7 of the last 8. Look for the game to stay under tonight.

Go under KC and Cincy. Rob V- GC Sports

PlayTotal Under 10 (-110)
Seattle Mariners @ Texas Rangers
Game Time Wednesday, Aug 12, 2020, 9:05 PM ET
Current Odds Rangers -130, O/U 8½ @ Youwager

Rangers Lyles: 0-2 home career team starts versus Seattle; and host in Lyles’ career team-starts 0-4 versus Mariners.

With the Rangers 1-8 in their last nine overall division games, we recommend a 1* play on Seattle.

Thank you and good luck as always.

San Diego Padres @ Los Angeles Dodgers
Game Time Wednesday, Aug 12, 2020, 9:40 PM ET
Current Odds Dodgers -150, O/U 9 @ Mirage

The NL West is loaded with the Padres, Dodgers and Rockies all fighting for supremacy in the early going.

The Padres have won three straight coming in, including the first two games of this series with Los Angeles.

I think we’re getting great value on the Padres again today with Zach Davies on the mound. He has consistently been one of the most underrated starters in the big leagues over the past few seasons.

Davies is off to a 2-1 start with a 2.87 ERA and 0.830 WHIP in three starts for the Padres in 2020. He owns the Dodgers, going 3-1 with a 1.98 ERA and 1.018 WHIP in six career starts against them. He has allowed just one earned run in 19 innings in his last three starts against Los Angeles for a minuscule 0.47 ERA.

Davies is a very profitable 20-14 (+14.5 Units) as a road underdog of +100 or higher in his career.

Bet the Padres Wednesday.
