Tuesday MLB with Joe Wiz: Oakland Athletics, who need to get hot quickly, face Detroit Tigers
Time is starting to get short for some of the teams chasing the pack in the MLB.
Just look at the New York Yankees: they won 13 games in a row, and actually lost ground in the AL East race to the Tampa Bay Rays.
Oakland is another team that has faltered, and is now six back off the top of the AL West. It very much looks like a three-team race for the two AL Wild Card spots.
Tonight, Oakland gets Detroit, and it is Cole Irvin vs Tarik Skubal. Both pitchers have similar numbers, and I have to side with the better team here.
As always, I use PlaySugarHouse.com / BetRivers.com for all of my lines and action.
And remember to tune in to The Feinline (60 minutes of sports betting advice) Friday nights from 12-1 a.m. and Saturday mornings from 8-9 a.m. on 98.7 FM ESPN NY and the app.
