MLB FREE PICK: Take the. According to the latest MLB trends, Athletics are 10-2 in their last 12 during game 3 of a series, 8-2 in their last 10 games with the total set at 9.0-10.5, 10-3 in their last 13 games vs. a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30, 12-4 in their last 16 when their opponent scores 2 runs or less in their previous game, 11-4 in their last 15 Wednesday games, 19-7 in their last 26 games as an underdog of +110 to +150, 15-6 in their last 21 road games,  10-4 in their last 14 after allowing 2 runs or less in their previous game, 26-12 in their last 38 overall, 41-19 in their last 60 games following a win,  5-1 in Parker's last 6 starts during game 3 of a series. The Athletics are a half game behind the Orioles in the AL East wild card race but four games behind Texas in the AL West. They aren't likely to catch Texas, but they don't want to travel to Baltimore to win the wild card one-game playoff. Parker has been outstanding for Oakland all year and even better in his last three starts, posting a 2-0 record with a 1.64 ERA. Perez has some talent but is 0-2 in his last three starts with a 3.38 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.
