The Hot Corner, Texas Rangers at Oakland Athletics

THE HOT CORNER [Mal VAN VALKENBURG review-journal, 66-58-5 (overall)]

Today’s best bet: Texas Rangers-OAKLAND ATHLETICS (under 8)

■ These teams have two of their better starting pitchers going. Derek Holland starts for the Rangers and his ERA is 3.18, but his ERA for road starts is 2.89. A.J. Griffin starts for the A’s and his home ERA is 3.59. His 5-2 at home and 10-7 overall. Holland is 6-1 on the road. This is going to be a low-scoring game and eight runs is just a bit too much.
