The Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics face off on Monday in an American League West MLB showdown at the RingCentral Coliseum.
The Astros come into this game with a 30-18 record overall and on Sunday it was a pitchers duel on Sunday that they were able to win. The pitching staff only gave up one run and that was enough to secure the victory. This Astros team has found a ton of success this season, but they haven’t been exactly an elite offensive team. The Astros are averaging only 4.02 which puts them in the bottom third of the league.
On the other side of this matchup is the Athletics who sit with a 20-30 record overall, but they are coming off a win in their last game. The A’s scored six runs against the Texas Rangers on Sunday and won by a run. The A’s offense and pitching both haven’t been great, but their pitching has been a bit better giving up 4.26 runs per game. Sean Murphy and Seth Brown have been the only two players that have driven in at least 20 RBis.
On the mound for the Astros is Framber Valdez who sits with a 4-2 record and an ERA of 2.83. In his last start against the Cleveland Guardians, he gave up seven hits and three runs.
On the mound for the A’s is Paul Blackburn who has been one of the brightest spots of this team. Over his last three starts. Blackburn has given up only three runs total.
The A’s are 4-0 in Blackburn’s last four starts. The Astros are 1-5 in their last six games against a left-handed starter. The under is 3-0-1 in Blackburn’s last four starts.
Blackburn has been involved in lower-scoring games, and it’s going to be no different in this game. I am not sure it’s going to be enough for the A’s to win this game, but it’s going to be enough for this game to be lower scoring. Back the under to cash. It's also a lean with the A's to pull off the big upset.
