Houston Astros vs Oakland Athletics 6/1/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Houston Astros will meet with the Oakland Athletics in MLB action in Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, CA, on Wednesday, June 1, 2022, at 3:37 PM ET.


On Wednesday, Justin Verlander will make his tenth start of the season. Verlander will be looking to bounce back after giving up six runs on ten hits in six innings against the Mariners in his previous appearance, which was his first loss of the season.


With a 2.03 ERA and a minuscule 0.83 WHIP to go along with a 6-2 record in 57.2 innings pitched, the former Cy Young Award winner is having another outstanding season.


Verlander is yet to face the A’s this season, but his lifetime record versus them is 14-7 with a 2.60 ERA in 24 appearances. Houston continues their nine-game road trip. Before Monday’s 5-1 triumph, they dropped two of three games in Seattle, and the offense was held in check recently while the pitching was outstanding.


Two of Houston’s previous three series ended in victories. The Astros are averaging 4.04 runs per game, which ranks them 20th in baseball. The pitching staff has a 2.86 team ERA, which is excellent for second in the Majors.


  • The Houston Astros are 15-14 in their road matches against the spread. 
  • The totals went OVER in 0 of the Astros’ last 5 matches. 
  • The totals went OVER in 5 of the Astros’ 20 last matches at home.

Houston Astros vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 6/1/2022


Cole Irvin will take the mound for the Athletics for the eighth time this season. Irvin pitched well in his most recent start, allowing only three runs (two earned) in 6.1 innings while earning a no-decision in an A’s 8-5 loss.


The veteran southpaw pitched consistently all season, with a 3.15 ERA and 1.20 WHIP to go along with a 2-2 record in 40 innings. Last year, Irvin struggled against Houston, throwing up 17 runs in 20.2 innings and going 0-3 in his only four career meetings with the Astros.


The Athletics are in the midst of a 10-game homestand. Due to poor pitching, they dropped three of four games to the Rangers this past weekend. The rebuilding A’s dropped two of their past three series and will likely finish the season towards the bottom of the standings.


The A’s are generating 3.41 runs per game this season, which ranks them 29th in the league. The pitching staff has a 4.10 team ERA, which ranks them 21st in the majors.


  • The Oakland Athletics are 19-6 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Athletics’ last 5 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in 11 of the Athletics’ 26 last matches at home.

Houston Astros vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is Houston Astros. In his most recent start, Justin Verlander had a rare hiccup, allowing six runs. He’ll bounce back in a major manner, and the A’s batters will have a tough night.


Verlander is still as powerful as ever, and he’s a strong contender for the Cy Young Award right now. In five of his previous six starts, he surrendered two or fewer earned runs, and he was even better on the road, with a 1.85 ERA.


In addition, the Astros are notorious for feasting on Cole Irvin. Last season, he allowed 17 runs in 20.2 innings against the opponents. Oakland is one of the worst home teams in the league, having won only seven of their 26 matches at home this season. The Houston Astros will win to a predicted score of 5-1.
