Houston Astros vs. Oakland Athletics – 9/11/19 MLB Pick, Odds, and Prediction

2019-09-11 19:10:00 EDT

The Oakland Athletics and the Houston Astros will continue their MLB series on Wednesday.

In the Monday opener of this set, Houston blew out Oakland 15-0. On Tuesday, the Athletics returned the favor, charging forward with a whopping 21 runs and 25 hits on the way to a 21-7 victory. The two teams combined for 37 hits in that game.

For Wednesday’s game, the A’s will send out Brett Anderson for the start. Across his 161.0 innings and 11-9 mark this year Anderson has a 4.08 ERA with 81 Ks and 45 BBs.

The A’s are 14-4 in their last 18 in game three of a series and 6-0 in Anderson’s last six starts in game three of a series. Oakland is 8-1 in Anderson’s last nine road starts and 7-1 in his last eight with five days’ rest.

Meanwhile, the Astros are 12-5 in their last 17 in game three of a series and 43-14 in the last 57 versus a lefty starter. The over is 4-1 in Houston’s last five Wednesday games as well.

Looking at Anderson’s recent starts, he’s been pretty solid. Only once over the last seven outings has he given up four earned runs, and he has five quality starts during that time. That said, Anderson is also just 2-4 over his last eight games.

I like Anderson to pitch fairly well here but I still have to go Astros.
