The Athletics are 6-1 in their last 7 Tuesday games and 9-4 in their last 13 during game 2 of a series. The over is 3-0-1 in Mariners last 4 overall. The over is 7-1 in Athletics last 8 overall. The Mariners are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings in Oakland.
Logan Gilbert has the ability to be a promising piece on the Mariners staff, but he hasn’t looked good in limited reps and going up against this A’s offense on the road likely won’t help. The Oakland Athletics haven’t been winning lately, but the offense continues to produce and things will turn around eventually with this being the case. The Seattle Mariners also don’t string together wins. Give me the A’s and the reasonable price at home.
