Joe Wiz MLB Tuesday: White Sox A's encounter favors Oakland, with even money odds on -1 line
Is Oakland going to make the MLB playoffs?
Not if the A's keep playing like they have been over the last few weeks: currently, ESPN has Oakland with an eight percent chance to make the Wild Card, even though they sit just 3.5 games back. The problem is, there are now four teams ahead of them coming into Tuesday night's game with the Chicago White Sox.
Basically, Oakland needs to win this game.
The matchup is Jimmy Lambert vs James Kaprielian, and the edge has to go to Kaprielian and the hosts.
