Free Sports Game Preview and Prediction: Oakland Athletics vs. Seattle Mariners
Tuesday, September 25, 2018 10:10 PM
Play: Money Line: -101 Oakland Athletics
Oakland won the opener of this series last night to remain a game and a half behind the Yankees for the first Wild Card spot in the American League. The top spot gets to host the Wild Card game next Wednesday so it is a big deal considering both Oakland and New York have been better at home than on the road. Still, Oakland is 14 games over .500 on the highway which is the fourth best road record in all of baseball. The A's are 28-10 in their last 38 games when their opponent allows five runs or more in their previous game. It was a good season for Seattle but it was eliminated from playoff contention last week and has nothing to get motived for. The Mariners have lost three straight games at home going back to the previous homestand and they are just seven games over .500 on the season at Safeco Field. Going back, the Mariners are 1-5 in their last six home games against teams with a winning road record. Brett Anderson has been solid since his return to the rotation in July as he has a 3.02 ERA in 11 starts and while he has struggled in his last two road starts, this is one of his favorite parks as he has a 1.20 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in eight starts and one relief appearance. The A's are 6-2 in his last eight starts after scoring five runs or more in their previous game. Mike Leake counters for the Mariners and while he has been solid at home, this is not a good spot. He got shelled by Oakland is his last start against them and with everything on the line, another struggle could take place/Here, we play on road teams when the moneyline is +125 to -125 with a starting pitcher whose WHIP is 1.10 or better over his last 10 games, after two straight games where the bullpen gave up no earned runs. This situation is 69-37 (65.1 percent) over the last five seasons. Play (977) Oakland A's
