MLB betting on Friday includes the battle of the Bay Area as the San Francisco Giants host the Oakland Athletics.
It is the first game of a three-game MLB betting series between the two teams. Those who bet on MLB action at the online sportsbook will want to pay attention to some serious trends for this game.
MLB betting trends definitely favor the A’s in this series. Oakland has won 14 of the last 20 games between the two teams and they are even better at San Francisco as online betting numbers show. The A’s have won 8 of the last 10 at San Francisco as MLB betting stats show. Last season the A’s won all three games at San Francisco by scores of 5-3, 4-0 and 5-1 as bet on MLB numbers show. Two of those three games went under the MLB betting total with the other game being a push.
The A’s success at San Francisco might not continue this season simply because the Giants are a solid home team. San Francisco has been solid at home while the A’s have struggled on the road in MLB betting. Oakland’s offense has been below average and their pitching is nothing special either. The A’s could have a lot of trouble scoring runs against a very talented San Francisco staff.
The Giants have ranked in the Top 5 in pitching for most of the season as MLB betting stats show. The problem for San Francisco has been an offense that is right near the bottom of the league as bet on MLB numbers show. With a pitching staff led by Tim Lincecum, Matt Cain and Randy Johnson the Giants don’t need a lot of runs to win ball games.
Online betting on the under in this MLB betting series has been the way to go recently. The MLB betting total has gone under 13 of the last 20 times the teams have met with one push. At San Francisco the under in MLB betting is a sparkling 6-3-1 in the last 10 meetings between the two teams. With the A’s and Giants both struggling to score runs the under could be the way to go on Friday.
