This Oakland offense is going to rely on power. Khris Davis is coming off a career year and has already slugged a couple of homer and there are other spots in the lineup they can hope for better than average production.
That boom bust approach is going to have a lot of painful night too though.
Raul Alcantara is one of several unproven arms in the Oakland rotation.
This will be just his sixth start in the Majors yet his third against the Rangers. He was 1-1 against them last season (his only MLB victory) but he did not pitch especially well in either ball game.
The Rangers needed Thursday off after getting swept at home by the Indians. The Indians are good but this team had the best record in the AL last season and was expected to contend.
It is early but perhaps all those metrics that said last year’s team wasn’t any good were correct.
Texas’ rotation has two aces but then it fall far and fast. Griffin is a former Oakland hurler who was out of the Majors for two years before joining Texas last season.
His numbers with the Rangers were not great with his biggest problem being keeping the ball in the park. If he can he has a chance.

Free Oakland A’s vs. Texas Rangers MLB Prediction:
No lines yet in this one but there might be some value with Oakland. I am not sure they have an advantage on the mound but even if they lose Thursday they might be feeling better than Texas heading into this one.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over
Texas has more than enough offense to get to Alcantara and with Griffin on the hill I would expect at least one Oakland player to go yard.
Put those two together and I can easily see 10 or more runs in this one.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Texas 7 – Oakland 5
