Seattle Mariners vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

I’m on the A’s here. I know the Mariners have been in much better form over the last couple of weeks and in all honesty, for the better part of the season. However, the A’s can still pull off the upset here and there, and Spence has been solid. If there’s one area of his game where George Kirby’s been vulnerable, it’s been pitching on the road, allowing 14 runs in his last three road starts. If there’s a spot for the A’s to steal one in this series, I think it’s here. Give me Oakland.

Chris’s Pick Oakland +145
