Two top teams from the AL West division Houston Astros and Oakland Athletics will continue to battle as they enter their second game of a four-game series from the Oakland Coliseum in Oakland, California. Houston is still at the second spot in their division with a 21-20 overall record. The Astros are trailing the Athletics in the top spot and they are two games ahead of the Seattle Mariners in the third. The Astros are just one game ahead of the .500 mark and they need a few victories to sustain.

The opening game was unsuccessful as the Athletics thrashed the Astros with six runs. Houston’s pitching unit was too weak while their batting squad failed to produce a single run from the plate. Houston struggled to get past Los Angeles Angels in their last three-game series. The Astros were swept by the Angels and they now enter with a four-game losing streak. Houston will try to bounce back in this game with Zack Greinke as their starting pitcher. Grienke is holding a 3-0 record on the season with an ERA of 2.91.

Houston Astros vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 9/8/2020

Oakland Athletics are one of those promising teams this season with their neat 24-14 record in the AL West division. The Athletics are holding a three game lead ahead of the Astros but unlike Houston, they are eight games ahead of the .500 mark. Oakland has a decent offensive unit that has been a powerhouse in scoring. The Athletics are all set to continue their success while they look to build on a winning streak.

Oakland split their two game series against the Padres and they lost their two-game series against the Astros previously. Oakland is looking towards Mike Minor as their starting pitcher in this game. Minor is holding a terrible 0-5 record on the season with an ERA of 5.94. Minor has struggled to make ends meet, especially in his last outing against the Padres. This will be Minor’s first appearance against Oakland in the 2020 season.

Houston Astros vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this match is Houston Astros -120. Houston defeated Oakland last week and they have the upper hand with Minor as their opponent pitcher. Oakland will still need extra support from the plate if they want to win this game. Throwing in Minor as their starter against Houston seems to be a risk at the moment. Back the Astros to win this game. Final Score Prediction, Houston Astros wins 6-3.
