Orioles vs Athletics Free Pick

American League action heads to northern California on Saturday when the Baltimore Orioles visit the Oakland Athletics. The current line on top sportsbooks has Oakland slightly favored at -108, Baltimore at -102 and the over/under run total on 9.

Entering this game, Baltimore on the season is 57-59 overall and 22-36 on the road. The Orioles are 5-5 in their last 10 games played. Oakland on the season is 51-65 overall and 32-28 at home. The A’s are 4-6 in their last 10 games played.

Baltimore looks to bounce back from a lost opportunity on Friday. The Orioles failed to level their record at .500 on Friday by squandering a lead late in the game and losing 5-4.

Baltimore’s Adam Jones hit a home run for a second consecutive game while Jonathan Schoop knocked in a pair of runs raising his RBI total to 84, which leads the team.

The Orioles have now lost three of their last four games and dropped behind Minnesota by two games for the second and final wildcard spot in the AL. Baltimore is 2-3 after 5 games of his current 10-game road trip.

Oakland staged a rally during the eighth inning on Friday to end its losing streak of three games. Jed Lowrie tied the game with an RBI double and Chad Pinder knocked in the go ahead run with a sacrifice fly. Oakland is now 1-3 after four games of its 9-game home stand.

Baltimore will send Dylan Bundy to the mound on Saturday. The Orioles right-hander is 11-8 with an ERA of 4.15. Oakland will counter with Sean Manaea. The A’s lefthander is 8-6 with an ERA of 4.15.

Bundy has been victorious in his past three decisions with the most recent Monday against the Los Angeles Angels. In that game, he allowed two runs while striking out a career-high 10.

Manaea gave up six runs with just one strikeout over each of past two starts ending up with one loss and one no decision. His current winless streak sits at four straight outings. During those four games, Manaea has given up six homers.

Baltimore is 6-1 in its last 7 games against a southpaw starter.

Oakland is 1-5 in its last 6 games versus an opponent from the AL East.

With this free pick, we like Baltimore to win.
