Offensively, Oakland is putting up 5.08 runs per game while posting a .248 batting average. Matt Chapman is leading the team with 22 doubles, 21 home runs and 52 RBI. Marcus Semien is adding 20 doubles, 13 home runs and 46 RBI.

Mariners on a slide

Seattle is now 38-53 overall, 18-27 at home and 57-30 with the over. The Mariners have Yusei Kikuchi getting the start this evening. He is 4-5 on the season with a 5.12 ERA.

MLB Betting Trends

Oakland

The Athletics are 6-1 in their last seven road games against a left-handed starter and 17-5 in their last 22 road games.

Seattle

The Mariners are 5-15 in their last 20 games against a left-handed starter and 7-19 in their last 26 AL West games.

Prediction:

Seattle has been a bit of a train wreck over the last month and today they have a struggling starting pitcher. Kikuchi has given up three runs or more in eight of his last nine starts. Oakland is rolling and they have a good arm on the mound today. He is coming off 7.2 scoreless innings against the Angels. Anderson has a 3.65 in two starts against Seattle, both of which came against a stronger lineup than what the Mariners currently have.

MLB Prediction: Oakland Athletics -150
