Minnesota vs. Oakland,

Score: 4 - 3
Total: +100/+9½ Over
Kyle Gibson RHP8-4, 4.21 ERA, 88 SOGibson was scheduled to start Sunday's series finale against the White Sox but was pushed back because he was needed for an inning of relief in Thursday's 18-inning game against the Rays. He allowed four runs in seven frames in his last start and does not matchup well vs this AS batting order according to my advanced data power ranking listings. Oakland has scored 7 or more runs in 3 of their L/4 and look to be heating up offensively and could do some series damage today. Meanwhile, Minnesota remains a dangerous offensive team averaging 6.3 rpg and no matter who goes to the hill today will be able to rspond in game with some fireworks of their own .With that said Im recommending we take the over.
GIBSON is 40-19 OVER vs. an AL team with a batting average of .260 or worse in the second half of the season since 1997. (Team's Record)
OAKLAND is 21-10 OVER vs. AL teams allowing 4.4 or less runs/game in the second half of the season over the last 2 seasons.OAKLAND is 10-1 OVER after scoring 8 runs or more 2 straight games over the last 2 seasons.
