Money line (ML)
The DIAMONDBACKS (+105) are a solid play behind MadBum as short underdogs on their home field. The A's are just 2-5 in their previous seven interleague games, and they're 1-5 in their past six interleague games against a left-handed starting pitcher.
On the flip side, the Diamondbacks are 5-2 in their past seven at home vs. right-handed starters, while going 4-1 in the past five as home underdogs.
The DIAMONDBACKS +1.5 (-150) aren't a terrible play catching a run and a half on their home field, although they're a much better play just straight up. Arizona cashed against the run line in each of its past three outings, all at home.
OVER 9.5 (-115) is the play in this interleague battle. Both Bassitt and Bumgarner have been very giving so far, and both of these offenses should excel in the front end of this interleague opener.
The Over is also 6-0-1 in Oakland's past seven as a favorite, while the Over is 5-1 in Arizona's past six at home and 4-1 in its past five at home vs. RHP. Enjoy!
