Click Here for the Latest Odds

The New York Mets and Oakland Athletics face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at the Oakland Coliseum. The two teams have split the first two games of this series. 

The Mets come into this game with a 96-57 record overall but their pitching really struggled on Saturday. The pitching gave up 10 runs to the A’s and that was the difference as they were defeated by six runs. The Mets pitching overall this season has been the strength giving up only 3.71 runs per game which is 4th best in baseball. In this game, the Mets are going to need a good start from Scherzer. 

On the other side of this matchup is the A’s who have had a disappointing season and they sit with a 56-96 record overall. This is an offense that hasn’t been great this season but on Saturday they scored the ten runs on the way to the victory. Oakland overall is averaging 3.48 runs per game which is 29th in the league. 

On the mound for the Mets will be Max Scherzer who sits with a 10-4 record and an ERA of 2.15. In his last start against the Milwaukee Brewers, he went six innings giving up zero hits and zero runs. 

On the mound for the A’s will be JP Sears who sits with a 6-2 record and an ERA of 3.58. In his last start against Seattle, he went five innings giving up one hit and one run. 

The Mets are 7-2 in their last nine games. The over is 4-0 in the A’s last four interleague games. The over is 4-0 in the A’s last four games as an interleague underdog. The over is 6-0 in the Mets last six games against a right-handed starter. 

The A’s offense was good on Saturday, but it won’t be here. Scherzer is coming off a game where he gave up zero runs, and the A’s won’t score against him here. The Mets might not score six or seven runs here, but they are only going to need to score a few to get the job done. Back the Mets -2.5 to cash.
