Afternoon Annihilation - Rickenbach MLB Rotation #975 Sunday 10* Top Play OVER the total in Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics @ 3:05 ET - This is a contrarian play when looking at how well Frankie Montas has pitched for the A's this season. However, as long-time followers know, I go contrarian to public perception quite often and that is the case here as per usual. With this total at 11 or 11.5 runs many perceive it to be too high considering that Montas is 7-2 with a 2.83 ERA for Oakland this season. The key to the value is he is facing a Rangers team that has been one of the top hitting teams in the majors this season and that tends to be particularly dangerous when on their home field. After yesterday's sweep of the double-header, Texas is 9-3 their last dozen games and the Rangers have scored an average of 6 runs per game during this stretch. On the season Texas is averaging 6 runs per game against right-handed starters and the A's are averaging 6 runs per game in road games. Oakland should have no trouble with the offerings of Rangers lefty Drew Smyly in this one. The Texas southpaw has been rocked in each of his last two outings and also got rocked by the A's when he faced them earlier this season. Smyly is 0-2 with a 7.43 ERA in his 6 home starts this season. Oakland is 16-8 to the over, including 5-1 this season, in road games in which they are a road favorite in a price range of -125 to -175. Texas is 7-3 to the over in Sunday games this season and the over is 14-7 in Rangers day games this season after Game 1 of yesterday's double-header had 15 runs scored and soared over the total. More of the same here! 10* OVER the total in Texas
