MLB Betting Odds – Free Picks:  Jason Hammel and A’s Decent Price With 1.57 ERA

Our second pick of the day will be on the Oakland Athletics -133 vs. the Houston Astros.   None of the books were going over -140 and our limit when it comes to picks is -145 so do a little line shopping before placing this bet.

The Athletics RH Jason Hammel (8-8, 3.41 ERA) is 2-1 with a 1.57 ERA in five games (four starts) vs. Houston and is coming off three straight poor starts so this could prove to be a good redemption time.

The Astros LH Dallas Keuchel (9-7, 3.11) is 0-2 with a 5.20 ERA in six career games - four starts - against Oakland, last yielding three runs in 6 1/3 innings against them on April 26.

Oakland has won three of the last four in this series and is 7-3 so far this season.

The Astros are 4-10 in Keuchel's last 14 home starts and 1-5 in Keuchel's last 6 starts with the total set at 7.0-8.5.

It is interesting to note that the total for today’s game is set at 8 and the OVER is 8-4 this season.  We are going to back away from the total for this game, however, but might deserve a look for more aggressive bettors.

This game goes off at 2:10 pm EST.

Florida State Seminoles at Duke Blue Devils Betting Preview

Florida State Seminoles at Duke Blue Devils Betting Preview

Monday night’s ACC clash between Florida State and Duke features a high level of importance on both a conference and national stage. As two of the conference’s best teams, both the Seminoles and Blue Devils have the opportunity to break their current conference tie and move the winning team into sole possession of second place in the ACC. As their only scheduled head-to-head game this season, this will serve as a solid barometer heading into the final weeks of the regular season. On paper, these two teams are evenly matched and feature such a deep collection of talent that a down-to-the-wire game seems all but imminent.
