MLB American League West Mismatch Features Houston vs Oakland

Oakland Athletics: Always a strong play versus ‘Stros

Cruising out of the MLB All-Star break, with six wins in nine games, Oakland owns the top perch in the Majors with a 65-39 mark. Looking to continue their winning ways, the Athletics roll into Minute Maid Park with a 22-7 record vs Houston since the Astros joined the AL West for the 2013 MLB season. The A’s are solid across the board as their dominating pitching staff (3.09 ERA) is backed by an offense that leads the Majors with 515 runs scored. Oakland pummeled the ‘Stros 10-1 on April 24 – the last time they opened a series in Houston.

Pitching match-up favors Oakland as Astros stumble along at home

Many factors point to the Athletics here, including the A’s winning seven of ten versus the Astros this season as they have doubled them up by a 72-36 combined final score. The pitching match-up is also favorable here as Jesse Chavez (8-6 ERA 3.14) will battle Brett Oberholtzer (2-7 ERA 4.32) who gave up eight hits and six runs in 3.2 innings pitched back in that April blowout. Need more? The ‘Stros are a horrible 1-8 at home since June 30 as they have scored just 19 runs and sport a .204 team batting average over those nine contests.

MLB Call: Align with the Athletics and 500 unit money line wager at the Sportsinteraction sportsbook.
