Best Bet of the Day Phillies at Athletics - 06-26-08

Jun 26, 2008 7:01 PM

by GT Staff | Philadelphia Phillies at Oakland Athletics 170 (+105, 1 runs)

This might be a good spot to take a look at the home Athletics. Oakland has won seven of its last 10 and are a solid 13-7 in the month of June. Moreover, pitcher Rich Harden has been sharp since coming off the DL in May: Hes 3-0 since rejoining the rotation and his 1.9 ERA in his eight starts is only complemented by his 7.1 strikeouts per nine innings. The Phillies, on the other hand, have lost their last six games and have won only three of their last 13. Pitcher Adam Eaten, like many on the staff, has been up and down, but when he pitches on the road, Philly is only 2-6. The money line might be high, but its justified. You might even want to take a shot a laying Oakland on the run line. Oakland 170.
