From the wise words of Sir Mix-a-Lot, uh double-up uh-uh. We’ve got Wednesday night’s game (10:07 p.m. ET, ESPN) between the New York Yankees and Oakland Athletics on tap, following up on our award-atomizing trailer of Tuesday’s competition. That game was not too difficult to deal with; because pitcher Domingo German is overvalued in the marketplace the Yankees disappeared. Looks like we weren’t alone in this assessment. At that time, the A’s have proceeded on Tuesday’s MLB likelihood board to as much as +110.
Wednesday’s game is going to be a little tougher. J.A. Happ (5.55 FIP) is beginning for the Yankees, whereas Mike Fiers (4.77 FIP) responds for Oakland. It’s a benefit for the A’s, however maybe not enough for us to place the home side as –110 favorites. Maybe that 9.5-run complete will be more to our liking.
Maybe. Our adorable panel of quants might have other thoughts

There is room on the moneyline to pick on both sides in this battle as you can see. The complete is tight. There might be a very small opening to urge the”below” for a small amount, but we are likely to call an audible and give the”above” a chance rather, dependent on a few factors — including the weather. Wednesday’s game-time forecast calls for clear skies and temperatures in the mid-70s, which ought to help improve the run total in what is otherwise a pitcher’s park.
