Oakland will try to snap its three-game losing streak when it travels to Seattle for a series opener on Thursday night.
Oakland was sitting at a respectable 15-20 mark midway through May, but the Athletics have been on a major downward spiral since then. They have only won consecutive games twice over the past 1.5 months, with one of those occurrences coming last weekend when they beat Kansas City on Saturday and Sunday.
The Athletics proceeded to lose three straight games against the Yankees earlier this week, wrapping up the series with a 5-3 loss on Wednesday. They are amid a 10-game road trip that will conclude with Sunday’s series finale.
Oakland is essentially out of the playoff race already, trailing Tampa Bay by 16.5 games for the final AL Wild Card spot.
The Athletics have been the worst offensive team in the majors, batting at a .211 clip. They are facing a Seattle pitching staff that is No. 10 with an ERA of 3.74.
Seattle got off to an 11-6 start this season before eventually falling 10 games under the .500 mark 10 days ago. The Mariners have responded with a strong stretch of baseball, winning 7 of their last 9 games. They are coming off a pair of wins over Baltimore, including a 9-3 victory on Wednesday.
Seattle is trying to battle its way back into playoff contention, sitting 5.5 games back of Tampa Bay in the AL Wild Card race. Coming into play, the Mariners are 4th in the AL West, 12.5 games back from the Houston Astros.
The Mariners have been a poor offensive team, ranked No. 18 in team batting average (.234). They will be facing an Oakland pitching staff that is No. 24 with an ERA of 4.44.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- The Athletics are 26-14 ATS on the road
- The Athletics O/U are 17-20-3 on the road
- The Mariners are 18-18 ATS at home
- The Mariners O/U are 15-19-2 at home
Oakland Athletics vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Seattle is rarely this large of a favorite, but I think this spot certainly warrants the hefty price. The Mariners are not only the better team, but they are also in better form and have the better pitcher on the mound.
Seattle is coming off a pair of wins, while Oakland was swept by New York earlier this week.
Gilbert has been one of the most underrated starting pitchers in baseball, posting a 2.44 ERA so far this season. He has four wins in last six outings and is poised to add a fifth win in seven tries on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the Athletics are having to send a replacement arm to the mound for this game.
