A’s vs. Rangers Prediction

I’m on the over here. I don’t trust the matchup for either one of these starters right now as JP Sears has been getting roughed up so far this season and Jon Gray had issues against the A’s at home last season. Oakland’s offense has actually been semi-decent in recent games and the Rangers have had one of the more electric offensive units in all of baseball this season. I think we’re getting a high-scoring affair here. Give me the over.
