After a 2-5 start, it’s safe to say that the Houston Astros have hit their stride. The Astros have won nine in a row, including three wins over the Yankees and another three wins over Seattle. Houston looks dangerous, and should continue to look dangerous against Oakland.
Wednesday, the Astros will send out Wade Miley to take on starting pitching duties. Miley is 1-1 this season with a 3.45 ERA. He’s given up six earned runs over 15.2 total innings, while also tallying 10 strikeouts.
The 3-4-5 part of the order has been phenomenal at the plate. Jose Altuve is batting .328 with seven homers and 13 RBIs, while Carlos Correa and Alex Bregman are both batting .313. Combined, the two have 30 hits and 10 RBIs. This is one of the most dangerous batting orders in the majors, and these three are a big reason why.
Sitting 3rd in the AL West, the Oakland Athletics have looked better in recent days, winning four in a row before losing on Sunday to Texas. On Wednesday, Frankie Montas will take the mound as the starter. Montas is having a strong start to the year. He’s 2-1 with a 3.18 ERA. He’s given up just six earned runs and 13 hits over 17.0 innings. He also has 14 strikeouts.
The offense has started to come along for the As in recent games. Over the last five outings, Oakland has scored seven-plus runs in each one, including a 13-run effort in a blowout win over Baltimore.
Look out for catcher Josh Phegley, who has been a strong leadoff hitter for Oakland. He’s batting .325 with three homers and nine RBIs in 40 at-bats.

Free Houston Astros vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
Houston is going for its 10th win in a row against an Athletics squad that’s looking a lot better over the past week. With Montas on the mound for Oakland, the Astros likely won’t have a huge offensive game, but with that 3-4-5 part of the order, anything’s possible. I like Houston to win a close one here, by a run.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER
The two starting pitchers are having strong seasons, each with ERAs under 3.5. With a high O/U of nine, I’ll take the under in this one.
