In position to win yet another series, the Yankees will call upon Micheal Pineda (5-2, 3.35) to put the finishing touches on the Athletics in a series there’s been just six runs scored in so far. The A’s will send second-year man Andrew Triggs (3-2, 2.77 ERA) to the hill as they go for their fifth underdog win at Yankee Stadium in their last six games there.

- The Athletics have made $100 bettors a profit of $452 in their last 5 games at Yankee Stadium.
- The total has gone UNDER in 5 of the last 6 games in this matchup that were played in New York.
- Andrew Triggs has given up just 1 earned run in 19 innings pitched on the road this season.
Although it’s a nerve-jangling endeavor, fading the public has been an extremely profitable venture early this baseball season. With a relative unknown going to the bump for the A’s, and with how the Yankees have started their campaign, it’s likely that the public will bet them heavily today and you might be wise to consider doing the opposite.
Scoring a total of just 13 runs in their last 5 games, the offense has dried up for the Yanks. Pineda has given up two or more runs in seven straight contests so if Triggs continues his dominance away from the Coliseum this afternoon, the A’s should be heading to Cleveland with a series victory.
