The Oakland Athletics will play the first game of their three-game series against the Minnesota Twins in Target Field, Minneapolis, on Friday, May 14, 2021, at 8:10 PM (EDT). Oakland won a series against the Red Sox on the road but was savagely beaten in the season finale, dropping behind 8-0 in the bottom of the sixth inning and never regaining control, falling to 23-16. The Athletics won seven of their last ten games to take a 2.5-game lead in the AL West. Oakland is on the other end of the continuum, as they have one of baseball’s best records but have a below-average offense. Oakland is 1st at 23-16 in the AL West Division.

This season, the Athletics are hitting .219 as a team and averaging 4.13 runs per game, respectively, ranking 26th and 19th in MLB. Frankie Montas will take the mound for the Athletics at his eighth start of the season and he continued his difficulties from last season into this one. Montas is 4-2, but his ERA is 5.50, and his strikeout rate dropped to 8.8K/9. Montas had a good game against the Rays, pitching 5 and 1/3 innings and allowing 5 hits and 2 runs while striking out 6 batters in a 6-3 Athletics victory.

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Oakland’s last 6 matches.
  • The Oakland Athletics are 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches against Minnesota.

Oakland Athletics vs Minnesota Twins Predictions 5/14/2021

Minnesota received the worst record in baseball this season, falling to 12-23 after being defeated by the White Sox. Despite their inability to win this season, the Twins belong to the top-10 offense in the MLB, hitting .246 as a team and scoring 4.74 runs per game, respectively, placing 6th and 8th in the league. Minnesota is 5th at 12-23 in the AL Central Division.

The Twins struggled with pitching this season, and with right-hander Matt Shoemaker on the mound, he’ll look to turn things around after a rough start. Shoemaker is 2-3 on the season with a 6.43 ERA but he is coming off his best start of the year — a 7-3 victory over the Tigers. Shoemaker threw five scoreless innings, allowing just four hits while striking out five batters.

  • The total went OVER in 4 of Minnesota’s last 5 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 11 of Minnesota’s last 16 matches against Oakland.
  • The Minnesota Twins are 1-4 SU in their last 5 matches this season.

Oakland Athletics vs Minnesota Twins. The MLB pick for this game is the Oakland Athletics. Oakland is currently the best team in baseball, and they will be able to maintain the momentum against the Twins. Matt Shoemaker continues to struggle with the Oakland bats starting to wake up after a weak week at the plate, and the Minnesota Twins are a very frustrating team this year, with the worst record in baseball. Oakland was overshadowed the day before, but they were able to rebound and prevail. The Oakland Athletics will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
