One of my favorite young studs, Manaea is strolling right along to begin the season picking up his first win against Texas going 8 innings giving up one earned off of three hits while striking out four and walking one.
His strikeouts are down (6.32 K/9), but he isn’t giving up walks with a 0.57 BB/9. He currently owns a shiny 1.15 ERA and 2.83 FIP, and although those numbers will most likely drop because of his unsustainable .154 BABIP, he should keep those numbers fairly low as long as he keeps hitting his spots with his excellent command.
Oakland has gone 3-4 in the last week while their lineup has been hitting the ball slashing .268/.347/.439 to go along with 20 extra-base hits and 28 RBI. They have done a good job getting walks (42), but they rank second in strikeouts with 96.
Los Angeles Dodgers
The lefty Ryu was rocked early in his first start of the season to the Arizona Diamondbacks as he took the loss. He could only make it 3.2 innings while giving up three earned off of five hits while he struck out two and walked five.
It was a combo of poor pitching and bad luck as he uncharacteristically gave up five walks while he owns a career BB/9 of 2.44. Ryu will be working on 7 days rest, so I expect him to come out sharper than he did in his first start.
In the last week Los Angeles has gone 1-4 while their lineup slashed only .221/.303/.303 while hitting 11 extra-base hits and 14 RBI. Their plate discipline has been so-so owning a 33:75 BB:K ratio.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Oakland +132
Manaea has been rolling along and will get to face a slumping Los Angeles lineup. I can’t trust Ryu after his debacle until he proves he is healthy enough to put in quality starts. The money line keeps dropping in favor of Oakland. I’ll back the team with the hotter lineup and pitcher.
