Oakland swept a four-game set against visiting Toronto and began its string against San Francisco with a pair of home triumphs, outscoring the Giants 11-1. Expect more from the San Francisco offense as the Over is 7-1 in Giants’ last 8 games as an underdog of +110 to +150.
PITCHING MATCHUP: Athletics RH Jason Hammel (8-5, 2.98 ERA) vs. Giants RH Matt Cain (1-7, 4.27)
Hammel will be making his debut for Oakland after being acquired from the Chicago Cubs on Friday. Oakland’s offense will give him the necessary run support.
The Over is 5-2 in Cain’s last 7 starts as an underdog. Cain is 0-4 in seven starts since posting his lone victory of the season May 15 versus Miami, so he will need run support as well.
