Oakland Athletics vs. New York Yankees Betting Prediction
The Oakland Athletics enter this matchup in last place of the AL West standings, 21 games behind the Houston Astros for first place. The Athletics most recently went 2-1 SU in a series with the Kansas City Royals but have lost six of their last 10 games. The Athletics had their bats working against the Royals, scoring 15 runs throughout the series. The pitching struggled a bit in game two, allowing seven runs, but allowed just three runs in both games one and three. This is well above their season averages of 3.17 runs per game (29th) on offense and a team ERA of 4.41 (24th). Oakland will send the right hander Paul Blackburn to the mound Monday. Blackburn has been solid this season, going 16-3 with an ERA of 2.97.
New York is currently first in the AL East standings, 11 games ahead of the second place Boston Red Sox. The Yankees went 2-2 SU against the Houston Astros prior to this matchup and have won six of their last 10 games. The Yankees struggled offensively in games two and three against the Astros with a combined one run scored but were productive in games one and four with a combined 13 runs scored. The bullpen allowed 15 runs throughout the series and held the Astros to under four runs in three of the games. This is right on par with their season averages of 5.02 runs per game (1st) and a team ERA of 2.94 (2nd). New York will start the left-hander Jordan Montgomery to the mound Monday. Montgomery is 3-1 with an ERA of 2.97 this season.
I like the Yankees runline in this matchup. New York ranks as the top hitting team in the league while Oakland has one of the highest ERAs in the league. Expect the Yankees to get off to a fast start and put this one away early. Backing the Yankees runline here.
