The A’s won the first match of this series. They held by a 1/2 – game across the Tampa Bay Rays onto the first of 2 AL Wild Card berths and 1-game across the Cleveland Indians. These three groups are currently competing for the postseason for the two AL Wild Card areas.

This situational question has earned a solid 41-18 listing for 73 percent winning stakes over the last five seasons and supports a play against the Rangers. The query teaches us to play home teams which have a money line that range between a -125 popular plus a 125 underdog having a team batting average of 0.265 or lower on the season after a game in which they scored and allowed eight or more runs.
This is a drama on the Athletics multi-faceted query that has desired a 168-92 record for 65% winning bets over the last five seasons. The question instructs us to play any group with an on-base-percentage of both 0.350 or better over their past 20 games and has got an overused bullpen which has thrown 13 or more innings over their last few games.
This is a superb matchup for the A’s noting that are 28-13 when playing with an AL opponent that’s allowing an average of 4.9 or more runs-per-game in the second half of the year. The A’s will have Mike Fiers around the mountain to begin the game and he’s been in wonderful form. Plus, the group listing in his begins has been 31-13 producing 25.1 units ($2,510 a $100 bet) when confronting an AL team that is batting 0.260 or reduced on the year in games played within the previous two seasons.
The listing projections call for Fiers to finish no less than six innings and that the A’s will dent in a minimum of three innings. In past games in which the A’s have met or exceeded these performance measures, they have earned an outstanding 609-89 to get 87% wins and have won the games by an average of 3.7 runs since 2004 and are 39-2 for 95 percent wins and have won the match by an average of 4.9 runs.
The Option is your Athletics favored -123 on the money line.
