Oakland is 7-15 in their last 22 games and 2-5 in their last 7 road games. The under is 4-1 in Oakland’s last 5 games. Washington is 15-36 in their last 51 game one’s of a series and 1-7 in their last 8 interleague home games. The under is 6-1 in Washington’s last 7 games. The over is 5-0-1 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings.

Both of these teams have had their struggles this season and are sitting towards the bottom of their league’s standings. Oakland is starting Cole Irvin, who has actually been pretty good this season and is coming off of an outing against Miami where he went seven innings and allowed 0 runs. For Washington, Erick Fedde has allowed seven runs over his last 15 innings pitched. I think Oakland has a big advantage in starting pitching and like them to win this game.
