Texas Rangers vs Oakland A’s MLB Pick & Prediction from Precision Picks


Texas Rangers vs Oakland A's: MLB Pick & PredictionTexas Rangers vs Oakland A’s: MLB Pick & Prediction by Ray Franklin of Precision Picks

First Pitch: 10:05pm EST, Oakland, CA

Starters: Derek Holland (5-5) (4.87 ERA) vs. Sonny Gray (3-6) (5.34 ERA)

The Line: Oakland Athletics -150 / Texas Rangers +140 – Over/Under: 8

The Rangers have scored 21 runs in their last three games and five or more runs in five of their last six games which has helped them win 10 of their last 14 games.  The Rangers lead the AL West while Oakland looks up from the bottom of the division.

Oakland kicked off the 4 game series on Monday with a 14-5 beating of their division rivals which extended their win streak to 4 games over the Rangers.  However, Texas bounced back on Tuesday night to end the streak and pick up a win, 10-6.

The A’s have been struggling a tad losing 8 of their last 10 games.  Sonny Gray takes the hill tonight and he is 7-3 with a 1.92 ERA and 61 strikeouts in his career against the Rangers.

Tonight’s key number is 3 runs.  Texas has won 10 of their last 13 games when scoring 3 or more runs.  The Oakland Athletics have an ERA of 4.63 and have lost 10 of their last 12 games when allowing more than three runs.

Why My Money is on the Rangers +140

Sonny Gray has pitched well vs the Texas Rangers in his career but so far this season he has not pitched as well as he did in 2015.  The Rangers are tearing the cover off the ball and while Beltre is questionable tonight, Shin-soo Choo, Mitch Moreland and Elvis Andrus should be able to carry the load for the Rangers offensively.  Look for Derek Holland to throw well enough and let his offense guide him to the win to put him over .500.  I see value on the Rangers tonight as I still don’t trust playing the A’s as favorites in this matchup.

Pick: Texas Rangers +140
