The A’s and the plus money is always worth a look, as they give themselves chances to win every game and have been rather consistent. However, the Giants and the cheap price at home is a no brainer, as they’re one of the hotter teams in the league and continue to prove they’re a legit contender. Winning last night in extra innings only provides a bigger confidence boost. The Giants are for real, folks.
