Athletics Betting Preview 

Oakland dropped to 10-39 after losing to Seattle. The Athletics have now  dropped six straight, and they’ll look to show some resistance in game two. The Oakland offense is scoring 2.81 runs per game, while batting .232, with a .313 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 7.29 ERA, with a 1.74 WHIP. Brent Rooker is hitless in his last three games, but he still leads the team in HR (11), and RBI (32). Esteury Ruiz is enjoying a eight-game hit streak, and he’s now leading Oakland in batting (.284). 

Ken Waldichuk (1-3, 6.85 ERA, 15 Ks) will get the ball for Oakland. The second-year lefty has continued to show growing pains, and he lost his last start in Houston after allowing four runs in five innings. Outside of eating innings, Waldichuk has struggled on the mound for the A’s, and he’s given up three or more runs in all but one of his first nine starts this season, while walking five or more in each of his last three appearances. 

Mariners Betting Preview 

Seattle enters at 23-24 after defeating Oakland. The Mariners opened the series explosively by tieing a season-high in runs, and they’ll look to replicate that Tuesday. The Seattle offense is scoring 3.67 runs per game, while batting .227, with a .308 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 3.55 ERA, with a 1.19 WHIP. Jarred Kelenic produced three runs in the game one victory, and he leads the team in batting (.296) and homers (10). Ty France provided the winning run on a solo homer last night to bring his splits to .261/3/21. Eugenio Suarez has produced three runs in two of the last four games, and he’s now up to a team-lead 28 RBI. 

Bryce Miller (2-1, 1.42 ERA, 22 Ks) will start for Seattle. The rookie pitcher took the first loss of his career last week in Atlanta, despite delivering a fourth straight quality start. off a great start through three MLB starts. Miller burst onto the scene with a ten-strikeout performance in Oakland, before tossing shutout ball against Houston and Detroit last week. All three outings were quality starts, and he’ll look to get things going against a tough Atlanta team Friday. 

Seattle vs Oakland Trends

Oakland is 18-31 against the spread this season, with a 28-19-2  O/U record. Seattle is 25-22 ATS this year, with a 23-23-1 over/under record.

Corey’s Free Pick

Seattle has taken the first two contests, and they should be able to keep things going Wednesday. The Mariners will carry a noticeable advantage on the mound with Rookie of the Year candidate Bryce Miller set to start, and Ken Waldichuk slated to start for Oakland. Waldichuk has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball this season, and it’s likely he surrenders some production here. Back Seattle to take game three of this divisional series.

Corey’s Pick Mariners -1.5
