The Baltimore Orioles travel west for the weekend to take on the Oakland Athletics in an American League matchup.
Everything about the Oakland Athletics seems legit so far, as they have struck a nice balance between great pitching and really solid batting and it would not be at all surprising to see them making yet another deep run into the playoffs here in 2021.
The Oakland Athletics have been the hottest team in baseball lately and are carving up their opponents left and right. Oakland has won 15 of its last 18 games after starting the year 1-7
Matt Olsen has done a great job of leading the Athletics offense to this point. H is hitting .296 and and has 6 home runs to his credit. He and Jed Lowrie have been the driving force behind an Oakland offense that no team wants to run into right about now.
13-year veteran Mike Fiers gets the start for the A’s Friday, making his season debut after recovering from injury. Fires was 6-3 in 20 starts last season while giving up 30 runs. Oakland ranks 15th in team ERA this year.
The Baltimore Orioles are not looked at as a contender by any stretch, but they’ve still shown a lot of fight early on and have some solid young players to build around.
The Orioles are three games under .500 this year, but have been impressive on the road. The O’s are 7-4 away from Camden Yards this year as they enter a three-game road series.
The Orioles are 27th in the league in both runs and hits per game. Cedric Mullens leads the team with a .340 average while Trey Mancini has made a great return this year with 5 home runs.
John Means (1-0 1.50 ERA) gets the ball Friday night for Baltimore. Means has allowed 5 runs on 18 hits through 30 innings of work across the first 5 starts of the year.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
The Oakland Athletics aren’t getting as much value as I feel they should in this spot. This is largely because Means has done well this year for Baltimore and Fiers is making a debut. Still, it is hard to trust Baltimore’s offense and for that reason, I’ll take the under and A’s moneyline.
