Will update with trends once they're released.
Trevor Cahill has allowed five runs and nine hits in his last 7.2 innings while Chris Bassitt has allowed one run and 15 hits in his last 13 innings. Chris Bassitt has been money in his two starts this month, and he's pitched his best at home all season long where he has an allowed batting average of .228 and a 1.14 ERA in 23.2 innings. The Athletics are also the better team here overall and have an offense that's due for a breakout performance. These A's bats won't be held down for much longer.
I'll back the Oakland Athletics and whatever the line is once it's released.
