MLB Preview Oakland at Toronto 4/29/2010 7:05 PM EST

Sharkhandicapping continues their strong performance in all sports picks and of course MLB is no exception with solid mixture of favorites and underdogs. The Oakland Athletics have been very reliable with their offense this young season even in their losses. In their past six encounters, the Athletics have averaged approximately six runs per game. In stark contrast, the Blue Jays have averaged about four and a half runs a game and that includes a twelve run slugfest this past Monday night versus Boston. Now let’s talk about Bullpens. Oakland’s pen has an ERA of 2.25 in their last twenty four innings, while Toronto’s pen has been dreadful with an earn run average 10.57. Oakland’s starter Justin Duchscherer has pitched his last nineteen frames without allowing a run after surrendering five runs in his first five and two thirds innings. Toronto’s starter Ricky Romero has been stellar too allowing six runs in thirty frames, but has only one and one win to show for his efforts.
