Athletics on a hot streak

The Athletics continued their strong hitting with a 13-10 win over Texas in 10 innings on Wednesday. They have scored 28 runs in the two games of this series. Oakland is now 59-43 overall and 33-21 on the road. The Athletics are putting up 4.78 runs per game this season while allowing 4.42 per contest.

Edwin Jackson is on the mound for Oakland tonight. He is making his sixth start of the season today. Jackson comes into the game with a 1-2 record, a 2.93 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP. He has pitched 30.2 innings this year and has 23 strikeouts with eight walks.

Texas beat down

The Rangers have lost six of their last seven games following their loss to Oakland on Tuesday night. Texas is now 42-60 overall and 20-32 at home. The Rangers are scoring 4.44 runs per game this year while allowing 5.29 per contest.

Martin Perez takes the mound for the Rangers this evening. He is making his eighth start of the year today and comes in with a 2-4 record, an 8.05 ERA and a 2.08 WHIP. Over 34.2 innings of work, Perez has 21 strikeouts with 16 walks.

MLB Betting Trends


The Athletics have won 25 of their last 32 games overall and 23 of their last 31 road games. They also are 39-16 in their last 55 games against losing teams.


The Rangers have lost seven of their last eight home games and 46 of their last 67 games against a team with a winning record.


Oakland has been mashing the ball this series and that should continue against Perez, who has given up at least four runs in more than half of his starts this year. Jackson hasn’t allowed more than three runs in any of his five starts this year. I can see this game being another high-scoring battle and Oakland has the better pitching with the more reliable pitching.


The Pick: Oakland Athletics -125
