Oakland Athletics – Houston Astros Match Prediction | 10-09-2019 20:10

Michael Brantley seems to have broken out of his slump and continues to lead the team in batting average at .321. Rookie Abraham Toro has also looked good in limited time as has Kyle Tucker, who finally popped his first big-league home run against Seattle in the most recent series. Of course the Astros offense is high octane and there are sky-high numbers being thrown around all over the place.

Anderson sports one of the worst K/9 rates in the league at 4.53, so the Astros should certainly be able to put it in play against him. He had to grind in his last start against Houston, tossing just 5 innings and giving up four runs, and had a similar outing his first time against them. He is quite capable of delivering a quality start but does have a few clunkers to his name this year. Anderson has been the other steady part of the rotation for the As this season behind Mike Fiers.

The Oakland Athletics have won 10 of their last 11 games when scoring four or more runs. The Oakland Athletics look for a win after winning eight of their last 12 games. The Athletics have scored 18 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. Marcus Semien leads the Athletics with 131 hits and 55 RBI while Matt Chapman and Ramon Laureano have combined for 222 hits and 127 RBI. Roark is 2-0 with a 2.53 ERA and 11 strikeouts in his career against the Astros. Tanner Roark gets the ball, and he is 7-8 with a 4.06 ERA and 121 strikeouts this season.

Houston Astros are one of those tough teams on the season and they are all set to continue their victory by extending their four-game winning streak. The Astros were successful in their last game against Texas Rangers. From the pitching side, Houston witnessed Jose Urquidy go deep for his team and Tony Kemp done a good job from the plate.

Houston Astros VS Oakland Athletics

Since coming over from the Royals, Bailey has a 4.98 ERA in 10 starts with a big chunk of that coming from his appearance against the Astros. He only tossed 2 innings in the one while getting shelled for 9 runs. Homer Bailey will take the ball after a string of good starts for the As, who Im sure are happy to see that after his disastrous debut with the team. There was one other start like that against the Cubs for him, but Bailey has been mostly solid otherwise.

The Athletics scored five and restricted the Twins to four. Houston Astros will remain at home to face-off against Oakland Athletics on Monday in the first game of a three-game series. Oakland done an amazing job by defeating Minnesota Twins on Saturday. The Athletics enter into this match with a two-game winning streak and are expecting to extend their victory.

Bet on AH OAK (-1.5) to win! For this one we will have Z. Houston managed to sweep Seattle in a four-game series while Oakland five of their last six games, but they did play all of those games as a favorite on home soil. The Astros should prevail comfortably over the Athletics on home soil. Greinke for HOU, who failed to convince on a consistent basis for his new team in 9 starts thus far. Meanwhiile OAK tries to counter with M. Fiers, who is having a solid season for sure, but he should have a tough time against a dangerous offense, which managed to score 21 runs most recently.

Oaklands roster is not designed to come from behind, so once the Astros got up 4-0 the game was pretty much in hand. The Astros have a five game winning streak going and will need to stay sharp to get one over on the Athletics. The Houston Astros 65-37 SU took an uneventful opening game last night over the Oakland Athletics 57-44 SU. The Athletics pride themselves on keeping games close and capitalizing on mistakes.

Oakland Athletics and Houston Astros will continue their series fromMinute Maid Park in Houston, Texas on Tuesday. The Twins were stronger at the plate as they smashed seven runs and restricted Oakland to six. The Athletics were unable to get past Minnesota Twins on Sunday, but the managed to put up a decent number on the scoreboard. The Athletics will need to make up for their loss and they are looking forward to win this match against Houston.
