    Baseball prop you guys might want to exploit.

    If you are OK with tieing up your cash for six months.......

    Some books have not adjusted the Team Total wins for the Oakland A's
    Still remains at 88.5 at a lot of shops, with J. Parker out for the season now, joining AJ Griffin and Scott Kazmir, latest computer modules show Oakland now a 82 to 83 win team, I got Oakland now at 82.8 wins, and I just got me some under 88.5 at -125 4*

    This team has no ptiching currently, a team that is going to war with now with sophomore Sonny Gray, Tommy Millone, Dan Strailey, and Jesse Chavez (who won today and is having a nice spring, but still....)
    That quartet scares nobody.

    I have no problems laying 25c on a 4 game edge.
    And I got no problems tying up some cash at 5D for six months either.

    what if they have great depth in their farm system that they can call up young players to pitch in the starting rotation?

    Jealousy is a funny thing. Up 5 grand on the year in NBA and you need to call my picks "losers" to feel better about yourself.

    Can't wait for your self-burial in mlb this year. You are touting yourself as the best mlb man here. Pretty soon it will be put up or shut up time. You better pray you are able to back it up.

    Pedroia looks razor sharp.
    Moose (KC) looks like he is finally going to live up to his potential.
    Heisy, Reds, has 5 bombs.
    McCuthchen is ready
    Hunter Pence is still raking
    Madison Bumgarder has yet to give up a run, and move up on my draft board.

    Got my big boy draft Sunday night.

    Parker only had 12 wins last year. Griffin should be back. Like it matters who their Sps are. Guys like Jesse Chavez will do ok in that park. Bullpen was massively upgraded and the lineup is still okay. Books just juicing the shit out of the under now. Be careful

    The play is taking Texas to win that division plus money if you love Oakland under.

    Parker was primed to shine this year.
    I am hearing Albert is mashing again, Texas sticks are lethal, Seattle's new lineup can score, Oakland ain't winning 88 now with a makeshift rotation.

    Parker worth 6 wins over his replacement though? I don't think so. If you think all that other stuff will account for them being below 88.5, then that's good reason. I wouldn't let Parker be the reason you throw down a bet on the under though.

    one of my books have already adjusted, line is now over under 86

    BUT...

    caribsports still has it at O/U 88.5 at -115


    that lineup is damn good though.

    Billy Beane will call up a coupla aholes that never swing and a live arm that nobody ever heard of and win 90+ again. Be careful with this bet.

    Parker ain't worth six, but factor in everything else you get six.
