Here are our 8/13 Free Picks. 11 days til college football (see our power rankings here)!
Oakland Athletics vs San Francisco Giants (-110, 8)
This should be a solid pitching match-up between Brett Anderson of the A’s and Madison Bumgarner for the Giants. MadBum has a 3.74 ERA/3.77 FIP/1.13 ERA on the year and Anderson with a 3.99/4.67/1.24 split. MadBum has a record of 4-2, with a 3.08 ERA and .908 WHIP. He also is only allowing a .173 BA on 63 ABs in his career against the A’s bats. This isn’t the biggest sample size but this is a pitcher who the A’s don’t see that often.
I am rolling with Madison in this one and like the home spot for them against an AL team. Both teams are in need of wins but tonight, go with the better starting pitcher.
