Baltimore Orioles vs Oakland Athletics 4/21/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Baltimore Orioles will go against the Oakland Athletics in MLB action in Oakland Coliseum, Oakland, on Thursday, April 21, 2022, at 3:37 PM ET. After dropping an MLB-worst 110 games last season, Baltimore’s 2022 campaign did not get off to a much better start.

 

After starting the season 0-5 away from Camden Yards, the Orioles finally got their first road win on Wednesday night, but the true problem is scoring runs.

 

In their first 12 games, Baltimore scored a total of 24 runs, averaging just two per game. This sort of offensive output puts a lot of pressure on a rookie pitching staff, and it’s not a winning recipe.

 

In the first 3 matches of this series, the Orioles only managed three runs, with top performers like Cedric Mullins and Ryan Mountcastle unable to get going.

 

Tyler Wells will start for the third time this season and in his career on Thursday. He struggled in his first two appearances on the mound, pitching only 1.2 innings against Tampa Bay before pitching four good innings against New York. In all, he had a 0-1 record and a 6.35 ERA.

 

Given Baltimore’s offensive woes, the Orioles will be hoping he can give some depth and build on Lyles’ performance the night before.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Baltimore’s last 7 matches.
  • The Baltimore Orioles are 4-11 SU in their last 15 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Baltimore’s last 6 matches on the road.

Baltimore Orioles vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 4/21/2022

 

Despite surrendering a lot of offensive talent in the off-season, the A’s started the 2022 season with a 7-6 record and now have a chance to win three out of four games in front of their home fans.

 

So far, the offense performed admirably, scoring 60 runs in their first 13 games. They, however, had a recent slump, scoring just 10 runs in their past four games. Tony Kemp and Sheldon Neuse did an excellent job setting the table at the top of the order. They’ll aim to get the offense back on track against Tyler Wells, who did not perform much.

 

After back-to-back strong performances, Oakland will turn to Paul Blackburn for the third time this season. Blackburn first blanked the Rays in 5 innings before holding a formidable Blue Jays lineup to 2 runs in 5 innings.

 

Much of the A’s rotation beyond Frankie Montas is unknown, so if the 27-year-old can keep it up, he can offer a significant boost to the back end of the staff and some much-needed stability.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 5 of the Athletics’ previous 6 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Oakland’s last 9 matches against Baltimore.
  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Oakland’s last 5 matches at home.

Baltimore Orioles vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Oakland Athletics. Even though it is still early in the season, it appears that the Orioles will have another difficult season ahead of them.

 

Apart from winning two of three games against the Yankees last weekend, not much else went smoothly for the team, which struggled at the bat, scoring only 24 runs in their first 12 games. Despite being shut out last night, Oakland’s offense was solid, finding ways to get key hits and score runs.

 

The A’ won seven of their previous eleven matches, while Baltimore went just 1-5 on the road this season. Expect Blackburn to keep his hot start going against a weak Orioles offense, while Tyler Wells will struggle to make it through four innings. The Oakland Athletics will win to a predicted score of 7-2.
