The name of Sunday afternoon’s game for Texas is trying to get to Oakland’s stud pitcher Mike Fiers. The Rangers took the first two in Oakland in dominating fashion, winning 11-3 on Thursday at +171 and 5-2 on Friday at +105. Getting runs across against Fiers is a different animal though, especially as the Oakland pitcher hasn’t allowed a HR -out of the ballpark – in his last 52 IP.
If the Texas offense is finally stunted does that mean starter Pedro Payano can give them enough to cash at +170? That may seem like a tall order for a pitcher making his first career MLB start. The right-hander has been solid in two relief appearances, holding the Twins scoreless in an IP and limiting the Mariners to just a run in 5.0 IP. Even so, will his pitch count be tapped in the 80-85 range?
While Texas may have some pitching question marks heading into Sunday’s game, Oakland does not. Mike Fiers continues to impress by allowing 2 ER or less in 7 of his last 8 starts. Fiers has pitched into the 8th in 2 of the last 3 and has only allowed 1 HR – an inside the park one – in his last 7 outings. Fiers has a 2.58 ERA in 11 starts at home in 2019.
Oakland has a three game losing streak heading into Saturday night’s game with Texas and has been losers of 5 of the last 6 prior to that meeting. The A’s offense was in shambles being limited to 3 runs or less in 4 of the last 5 but perhaps they get going against a pitcher making his first ever MLB start.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Rangers are 4-9 last 13 road games
- Rangers are 3-9 last 12 overall
- Rangers are 1-5 last 6 vs. RH starter
- Athletics are 1-5 last 6 overall
- Athletics are 7-2 in Fiers’ last 9 starts
- Rangers are 7-19 last 26 in Oakland
Free Texas Rangers vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
Fiers has been dominant and the A’s offense has struggled largely for the most part lately. That’s a good recipe for a low scoring affair, especially when the total is on the high side.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 9.5
As long as Oakland’s offense doesn’t explode vs. an inexperienced pitcher a low scoring game looks to be on the horizon.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Oakland 5 – Texas 1
