Cincinnati Reds vs Oakland Athletics 3/18/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Cincinnati Reds will meet with the Oakland Athletics in MLB action in Hohokam Stadium in Mesa, AZ, on Saturday, March 18, 2023, at 4:05 PM ET.


All 3 catchers are still getting experience behind the dish in spring, and the situation remains identical.


As to be anticipated, Stephenson also played first base and as the starting pitcher, both of which he will do during the regular season.


Votto was on the initial forecast, but he wasn’t included in the prior update because he did not witness any game action and there wasn’t a timeframe.


Votto participated in Cactus League contests and seemed to fully recover, and is preparing for games in the same manner as the rest of the club. All of those indicate that the 39-year-old will be prepared in time to start the season.


In spring, India was 4-for-26 as of Friday, but it hit three doubles. His 2022 season was disrupted by leg ailments, but he is moving quite well and exhibiting no problems.


My first two predictions had Newman winning the starting job, but Barrero was improving offensively after a sluggish start in camp.


Although it’s still not a guarantee, he made enough progress in his hitting improvements to start the season in the majors. Newman will get the chance to participate as well.


  • The Cincinnati Reds are 3-2 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • Cincinnati is 41-39 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 2 of the Reds’ last 5 matches.

Cincinnati Reds vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 3/18/2023


The A’s head into this season after a dismal, but expected, last-place finish in 2022. They are hoping one more year into their rebuild and one year closer to playing competitive baseball.


Despite the impression that Oakland is rarely competitive, the team made the postseason six times since 2010. That’s not at all awful for a market the size of Oakland.


Not great, but not awful. Only a few of Oakland’s offseason moves that may affect their major league roster were aggressive.


The year 2023 will see roles for Trevor May, Kyle Mueller, Manny Pina, Jesus Aguliar, Jace Peterson, Aledmys Diaz, Esteury Ruiz, and JJ Bleday. From Japan, Shintaro Fujinami was brought over and will join the rotation.


The 2022 All-Star Paul Blackburn had a tremendous first half, compiling a 3.62 ERA with improved pitches all around. The second half was ugly, raising more concerns than it did answers about his level of effectiveness.


Kaprielian does not have great stuff, but a four-pitch combination with reasonable success. Waldichuk (the No. 60 prospect) made his debut in 2022, tossing 34.2 innings and compiling an ERA of 4.93.


He isn’t a 100 mph guy because he needs to have excellent movement to strike out batters. He showed the potential to strike batters out while still struggling with direction at times.


  • The Oakland Athletics are 3-2 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • The Oakland Athletics are 47-34 in their road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 1 of Athletics’ last 5 matches.

Cincinnati Reds vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Oakland Athletics.


Although the Great American Ball Park proved to be difficult for Atlanta throughout the years, the Braves should be able to defeat this squad in 2023.


Mid-April will see the Reds visit Truist Park, while late June will see the Braves reciprocate.


The Braves swept the Reds in a three-game playoff series in 2020 and won the last two season series against them by scores of four games to three.


That ended a run of five years in a row during which the Braves were unable to defeat Cincinnati in the season series.


This season, Oakland should concentrate on development. Finding innings for their youngsters when they’re prepared should be their top goal.


Even if the wins don’t materialize, the rotation will be intriguing to watch and provide a window into the future. The Oakland Athletics will win to a predicted score of 4-3.
