OAKLAND (134)

Edwin Jackson is baffling major league hitters. It's a rare baseball story to see a 34-year-old journeyman called up from the minors and help a team make the playoffs.

OAKLAND (125)

My data has the surging Oakland Athletics posting another win Friday against the visiting Astros, a prime value spot on a more than capable home underdog. Oakland is winning in 55 percent of simulations to provide massive value.

The A's haven't lost a game Trevor Cahill started in more than a month, and the guy has a ridiculous 0.99 ERA in seven home starts. Meanwhile, Dallas Keuchel has dominated Oakland, allowing a .218 average in nearly 200 career at-bats. Cahill has allowed seven runs over 9.2 innings against Houston this season, but barring a 10-run outburst against the Rockies, the Astros' offense is scoring just 2.6 runs over the last eight games. Oakland is at 4.9 per game.

Service Play Houston -150
