Athletics and Rangers canceled their game on Thursday and Oakland will resume play on Friday against their division rival in the Astros.
Athletics are coming off a series win of the Rangers where they took two of three on the road, where they struggled last year. Astros are also coming off a sweep of the Angels in a two-game set over the week.
Oakland is rolling right now as they were the third team in the league to reach the 20 win mark on the season. They hold a 4.5 game lead over the Astros for first place in the division
As a team, the A’s average 4.97 runs per game which is ranked 11th in the league among teams on offense.
Frankie Montas will try to get above .500 on the season looking for his third win on the year. Montas is 2-2 with a 2.97 ERA to begin 2020.
Houston will need to make up ground in this series as they have a chance to make a lot of ground against the A’s and their lead in the West. Astros have the chance to come out of this series just 1.5 games back or 7.5 games back depending on what happens in the games.
Stro’s will have Zach Greinke on the mound who has been great so far this year. Greinke is 1-0 with a 2.29 ERA in six starts this season he just isn’t getting any run support to receive the wins on the year.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction:
I like the Astros in this one as they need to make up ground here for the division race. They will have their suedo ace in Greinke in the game since Verlander is out with an injury still. Astros will win this thing big so take either the run line or best available money line if it’s looking good.
