Houston Astros vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 5/19/2021

Oakland’s lineup is not the best in baseball, but they did enough to keep the AL West lead. Oakland is hitting .223 as a team, good for 26th in the MLB, and averaging 4.2 runs per game, good for 18th in the league. Matt Olson, the first baseman, is off to a great start this season, hitting .267 with nine home runs and 25 RBIs, all of which lead the team. Matt Chapman, on the other hand, struggled with his hitting at times. With 5 home runs and 18 RBIs, he has a batting average of .225. Oakland is 1st at 25-17 in the AL West.

Frankie Montas, who is 5-2 with a 4.93 ERA on the season, will aim to build on a strong start last time out. His most recent start, in which he allowed four hits and a solo run in six innings of work while striking out five and walking one, was arguably his best of the year. After dominating in 2018 and 2019, Montas suffered in his last two seasons but has a mid-five ERA since the start of 2020.

  • The Oakland Athletics are 6-3 SU in their last 9 matches.

  • The total went OVER in 7 of Oakland’s last 9 matches against Houston.

  • The Oakland Athletics are 2-6 in their last eight matches against the AL West.

Houston Astros vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Houston Astros. The Astros are one of baseball’s strongest teams, and with Grinke finally finding his stride after a slow start, they’ll be able to keep it up as neither are favorites on the road. Houston is on a six-game winning streak and has a chance to take over first place in the AL West, and the Astros will win game two of this series if their bats remain hot. Montas is a strong starter, but not powerful enough to handle the Astros’ deep lineup, and he had difficulty getting things going. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 4-3.
