The Seattle Mariners and the Oakland A’s square off Thursday in MLB action from the Oakland Coliseum. We will look at this from a betting perspective and determine the best bets for this game. Here’s a Seattle Mariners vs Oakland Athletics Prediction.

Starting Pitching Matchup

The Seattle Mariners will send out Bryan Woo for the start here and Woo is 2-0 with a 1.30 ERA and 18 strikeouts this season. In his career, Woo is 2-0 with a 0.00 ERA and 14 strikeouts against Oakland. JP Sears will start for the A’s here and is 4-4 with a 4.01 ERA and 45 strikeouts this season. In his last five starts against Seattle, Sears is 2-1 with a 2.03 ERA and 24 strikeouts.

Seattle Mariners Recap

The Seattle Mariners come into this one looking to bounce back from a 2-1 loss at the hands of the A’s in Wednesday’s matchup. The rubber match still gives the Mariners an opportunity to keep their series win streak alive after knocking off the Angels and Astros over the last week and a half.

Mariners Still Have Consistency Issues

Julio Rodriguez leads the Mariners with 67 hits including a .270 batting average and also has 5 doubles. Cal Raleigh has a team-high 11 home runs along with 33 RBIs while Jorge Polanco has 5 home runs with 14 RBIs and Raleigh has a team-high 73 strikeouts. Mitch Haniger also has 6 home runs and 24 RBIs while Rodriguez has a team-high 14 stolen bases as well this season.

Why the Seattle Mariners will win

  • The Athletics have lost each of their last eight games following a win.
  • The Mariners have won each of their last six games against the Athletics following a loss.
  • The Mariners have covered the run line in five of their last six games against the Athletics following a loss.
  • The Athletics have failed to cover the run line in five of their last six games against American League opponents following a home win.
  • The Athletics have trailed after 5 innings in each of their last five day games against opponents that held a winning record.

Oakland A’s Recap

The Oakland A’s come into this one looking to win the series after their triumph in Wednesday’s matchup. A series win would do wonders for the A’s after series losses to the Braves and Rays over the last week and a half.

A’s Still Trying To Drum Up Consistent Offense

Brent Rooker leads the A’s with 39 RBIs along with 12 home runs this season while Abraham Toro has a team-high 62 hits and 21 RBIs. JJ Bleday has a team-high 18 doubles, 55 hits and 22 RBIs and Toro has a .272 batting average. Rooker also has the unfortunate title of leading strikeout bat with 69 K’s at the dish this season. Shea Langeliers has also chipped in a team-high 12 home runs and 30 RBIs.

Why the Oakland Athletics will win

  • The Mariners have lost five of their last six games as road favorites after playing the previous day.
  • The home team has won four of the Mariners' last five games.
  • The Mariners have failed to cover the run line in seven of their last eight games as road favorites.
  • The Athletics have covered the run line in each of their last five games against American League opponents.
  • The Athletics have led after 3 innings in each of their last three Thursday day games as underdogs.
  • The Mariners have trailed after 5 innings in three of their last four games as road favorites against American League opponents.

Seattle Mariners vs Oakland Athletics Prediction

I’m on the Mariners here. I get the case to be made for Oakland here as the A’s came through on Wednesday and JP Sears is usually one of Oakland’s best shots at getting a win from starting pitching. However, the Mariners are still the better team in my eyes and have a really solid starting option in their own right in Woo and I think Woo outduels Sears here and gets the Mariners the win. Give me Seattle.
