Arizona Diamondbacks vs Oakland Athletics 5/15/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Arizona Diamondbacks will go against the Oakland Athletics in MLB action in Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, CA, on Monday, May 15, 2023, at 9:40 PM ET.


The Arizona Diamondbacks found themselves staring up at the Los Angeles Dodgers, the traditional division favorites, after dominating the NL West Division for a significant amount of the first month of the season.


Even so, the Diamondbacks had a great start as they worked to reassemble a championship-caliber group.


Prior to Sunday’s finale of a four-game series with the Giants, the Diamondbacks just completed a 10-game homestand in which they finished 5-4.


Lourdes Gurriel Jr.’s walk-off double in the bottom of the ninth inning helped the Diamondbacks win the game 6-4 on Sunday to cap up their homestand.


Even though they were limited to just four hits, the Diamondbacks managed to win 2-1.


Right-hander Merrill Kelly will take the mound for the Diamondbacks in Oakland as the series opener. In eight starts this year, Kelly is 3-3 with a 3.18 ERA.


In 45.1 innings of work this season, he only gave up 32 hits, and he had four solid starts thus far. Kelly has a stellar 1.15 ERA after three road outings this year.


This season, Kelly’s hard-hit rate increased significantly to 39.3%, and his strikeout percentage increased to 25.6% from just under 22% in 2022. He had a career-high 11.1 walk percentage.


  • The Arizona Diamondbacks are 0-6 SU in their last 6 matches against Oakland.
  • The total went OVER in 7 of Arizona’s last 8 matches on the road.
  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Arizona’s last 6 matches on the road against Oakland.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 5/15/2023


Following the deconstruction of an important portion of their postseason squad from a few seasons ago, the Oakland Athletics look to be traveling a long and tortuous route to regaining relevance.


They have the poorest record in baseball going into this series and are now bottom in the AL West Division.


To begin the homestand against the Texas Rangers, Oakland dropped two of the first three games. Going into the series finale on Sunday, Oakland was hoping to share the series with the Rangers in first place.


Kyle Muller, a lefty, will start the series opener for the Athletics against Arizona. Muller made eight starts and has a record of 1-3 with an ERA of 7.34.


In 38 innings of work this season, he gave up 53 hits, and he is yet to have a strong start. Muller made four starts at home and is 0-1 with a 4.53 ERA in 26 hits over 19.2 innings.


Muller has a career-high hard-hit percentage of 49.6%. His strikeout rate decreased from 20.3 in the previous season to 14.6 in 2023. 


  • The total went OVER in 5 of Oakland’s last 7 matches.
  • The Oakland Athletics are 1-7 SU in their last 8 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Oakland’s last 10 matches against Arizona.

Arizona Diamondbacks vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Arizona Diamondbacks.


There is no getting around the truth that the Athletics will struggle this season due to a club in transition and questionable pitching.


With only four victories at home going into their series finale against Texas, Oakland actually performed worse at home than on the road.


Muller utilized the spacious foul space that served as Oakland’s pitchers’ savior by being somewhat more productive at home.


He struggled to retire opponents this season with a meager strikeout percentage of about 14% and a hard-hit percentage of around 50%. The Arizona Diamondbacks will win to a predicted score of 7-4.
