Baseball Betting Lines Phillies vs Athletics MLB Free Pick
Interleague play continues this weekend as we offer baseball betting lines from the Bodog online sportsbook and our MLB free pick for the Philadelphia Phillies vs Oakland Athletics.
Baseball Betting Lines Phillies vs Athletics MLB Free Pick: At 48-30, the Phillies have the best record in baseball. The Athletics, at 35-43, aren’t the worst team in the majors, but they are fairly close to it. Their visit to the Doc’s office today, won’t help the Athletics health.
This Major League Baseball wagering action has its first pitch slated for 1:35 PM ET on Sunday, June 26, 2011, from Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, PA.
MLB Wagering Preview – Athletics @ Phillies
Philadelphia (.615 WP) is cruising along as the only team with a winning percentage that is above .600 in the majors. Their top three staring pitchers are one of the most lethal threesomes in baseball.
Oakland has played some decent ball of late as they have gone 7-3 in their last ten games. The Athletics pitching staff (3.16 ERA) has kept this team in the hunt as they sit just six games back of Texas in the rather weak AL West.
If they played in the NL East, with the Phillies, the Athletics would be 13 games out of first place with their current record.

We look to the Bodog.com online sportsbook for today’s MLB betting lines for the Philadelphia versus Oakland match-up.
Bettors can basically load up anytime the good doctor is in the house for the Phillies. RHP Roy Halladay (9-3, 2.51 ERA, 119 SO, 16 BB) is, in our humble opinion, the nastiest pitcher in the National League.
Oakland does not fair well on the road, as is evident by their 16-27 record away from the Oakland Coliseum. They did win 4-1 last night, facing a tough Cole Hamels, but we see the Phillies rebounding in this one today.
If the sometimes-questionable Phillies bats come to life, with three or four runs, Halladay will make sure the run support stands up.
Take the Phillies over the Athletics at -1.5 runs (-110) with the Bodog Point Spread!
