Oakland Athletics vs Boston Red Sox Predictions 6/16/2022


Boston will start left-hander Rich Hill, who is 2-3 with a 4.38 ERA this year, 0-2 with an 8.04 ERA at home, and 1-0 with a 1.50 ERA versus Oakland this season. He is also struggling recently, going 1-2 with a 6.33 ERA across 21.1 innings in his previous five outings.


The Red Sox, on the other hand, had a strong pitching staff, with a team ERA of 3.57, which is the best in the majors. The Red Sox are hitting .255 as a club, which ranks seventh in the majors, and they are hitting .264 at home and.253 versus right-handed pitchers, while hitting.291 against Oakland.


  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Boston’s last 7 matches. 
  • The Boston Red Sox are 11-2 SU in their last 13 matches. 
  • Boston is 10-4 SU in their last 14 matches at home.

Oakland Athletics vs Boston Red Sox. The MLB pick for this game is the Boston Red Sox. Despite Hill’s recent struggles, the Red Sox bats finally woke up, allowing them to score a lot of runs and go hot.


Meanwhile, Oakland did not have the best luck with Hill in his career, and while Blackburn was excellent on the road, Boston appears to have his number, and the A’s bullpen battled to minimize damage and close out games. Furthermore, Boston won all four matches it played this season by more than 1.5 runs, except for Wednesday night.


The average margin of win was 5.25 runs per game, which is why I like the -1.5 here since Boston’s bats should continue hot while Oakland was dreadful this season in every way. The Boston Red Sox will win to a predicted score of 7-3.
