Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

Stripling at times has gotten run support but he is coming off a big game in the last game. Stripling went six innings and gave up zero runs. The A’s offense is averaging 3.54 runs and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. Both of the offenses are going to really struggle here and that will be the difference here as this game is going to be lower scoring. Back the under to cash here.
