Bookie Beatdown May 28 - Oakland Athletics

The Oakland Athletics have won seven of their last ten (on the road in the East no less). Bookies in the region will begin to see their losses mount should this keep up.  A top Pay Per Head will help keep any additional losses managable through loss leaders like an online casino platform, dozens of props and futures and LIVE IN-PLAY WAGERING.

There could be some good news for Oakland area bookmakers as they face a surging Tampa Bay team that has won five of their last seven against the A's.  They open as a -130 favorite Monday.

It's the Athletics defense that is making the difference of late.

The AthleticsNation.com writes of this defense:

When the A’s returned home they gave us a reminder of why defense is so important, in a pair of one-run losses to the Mariners. On Tuesday they went to extra innings, and Seattle drove in the winning run on the play embedded below. Notice Dustin Fowler bobble the initial pickup, after which the runner slides into home safely by maybe one or two steps at the most. You have to figure that a cleaner play results in an out, which wouldn’t have guaranteed victory but would have substantially raised the probability.
