Texas Rangers vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
I give a lot of Credit to the Rangers for winning the 1st game. I did not see that happening at all.
The Athletics are looking to get back to the top of the American League West. I look for them to bounce back in this game.
The starting pitching advantage clearly goes to the A’s in this one. Sean Manaea is the better pitcher and I feel he will show that. I look for Oakland to hit around Dunning in order to get a win.
The moneyline is too high in this one, so I will lay the run line with the home team.
