Here can be the finale of a collection between two AL West Division foes that will earn berths to the playoffs. The Houston Astros lead the AL West Division by 8.5 games on the A’s, who conquered them 5-3 yesterday.
This show started out together with the 15-0 of the A being blanked by the Astros , the A’s revenging that humiliating loss using a football-like score of 21-7.
There are 3 teams and they’re all within one game of each other in the standings. The Tampa Bay Rays (87-60) hold the initial AL Wild Card and possess a 1/2-game lead on the A’s (86-60), and also a 1-game direct over the Cleveland Indians (86-61).
The A has the opportunity to earn the postseason at 81% thanks in large part to getting the easiest remaining schedule among the 3 teams. Following this game against Houston, they will confront opponents with losing records.
The opponents would be the Texas Rangers (73-74, 3-games Off, 3-games Home), Kansas City (54-92, 3-games Off ), Los Angeles Angels (67-80, 2-games Home), along with the Seattle Mariners (60-86, four-games Away).
The Astros will have their genius right-hander Justin Verlander (18-5, 2.52) while the A’s will counter with Homer Bailey (12-8, 4.87).
Verlander is and is a contender for the AL Cy Young Award in top form. He directs MLB with 18 wins, next with a 2.52 ERA, first with a 0.77 WHIP, next with 281 strikeouts, original using 200 innings pitched, and secondly using a 7.2 WAR (Wins Above Replacement).
Over his past seven starts, he has bagged an outstanding 72-point game score, includes a 4-1 record with a 1.86 ERA allowing only 10 earned runs on 26 hits, five complimentary passes (walks), and contains ranked 68 batters over 48??1/3 innings of work.
In his last five starts confronting the A’s the results are similar to averaging a 68-point game rating, 3-0 album and two no-decisions, 1.95 ERA, allowing seven earned runs on 20 hits, five walks permitted, and 42 strikeouts crossing 32??1/3 innings pitched.
Verlander has enabled a 0.219 batting average, and 0.251 on-base-percentage (OBP) into the present members of the A’s in their various careers crossing 167 at-bats. But, just two of those big bats from the lineup of the A have had success against Verlander.
Chris Davis is batting 0.316 (6-for-19) in 19 plate appearances including a house run. Marcus Semien is batting 0.286 (8-for-28) including a home run confronting Verlander. The A’s lineup are great at working situations in their favor against novices like Verlander and is scrappy.
In 2019, the A’s are 6-6 straight-up (SU) making a $100 bettor a $100 profit averaging a 135-dog bet and 7-5 using the +1.5 Run Line making a $100 bettor a $155 profit averaging a -115 stake when on the street facing an elite right-handed rookie with an ERA of 3.00 or lower on the season.
This situational question has made a solid record for 65 bets within the previous five seasons.
The requirements are to play all favorites which have been on a hitting batting batting 0.325 or greater over their last few games and is facing an opponent having a starting pitcher at top shape posting an ERA of 2.50 or lower over his past five starts.
This is just another bet that’s going against the grain of common sense, however, the best choice is on the Oakland A’s.
Veteran John Ryan has released the Hitter’s Report Cards, Pitcher Report Cards, along with 16 Game Previews this MLB season. The combined list of these three distinct accounts have made the 100 bettor a profit of 3,115.00, and it is a brand new season-high and eclipses the previous season-high of $3,109 produced September 5.
