Oakland Athletics - Athletics expected to take advantage of their turf
The Oakland Athletics are currently in the midst of an 8-game losing streak and are hoping to end it with a victory. Baseball's Oakland Athletics now hold the record for the worst record in the league. The Oakland Athletics pitching rotation currently ranks 30th in quality, starting with 28 and 29th in ERA (5.58), WHIP (1.53), and WHIP, respectively. The offensive production of the Oakland Athletics ranks 30th in the league in terms of runs per game (3.62), batting average (.224), and home runs (162). The Oakland Athletics are led by Esteury Ruiz with 106 hits and 42 runs batted in, while Brent Rooker and Ryan Noda have combined for 190 hits and 116 RBI between the two of them. The next pitcher is Ken Waldichuk, who is now 3-8 on the season with a 5.40 earned run average and 122 strikeouts. It will be the second time in Waldichuk's career that he faces off against the Detroit Tigers.
Detroit Tigers - Tigers are favorite on the road
After winning six of their previous eight games, the Detroit Tigers are looking to extend their winning streak. The Detroit Tigers currently trail the Cleveland Indians in the American League Central by nine games. The pitching staff of the Detroit Tigers is currently ranked 19th in terms of earned run average (4.35), 9th in terms of WHIP (1.25), and 27th in terms of quality starts (41). The Tigers' offense ranks 29th in terms of runs scored per game (4.01), 28th in terms of batting average (.235), and 25th in terms of home runs (155). The Detroit Tigers are led by Spencer Torkelson, who has 132 hits and 86 runs batted in, while Matt Vierling and Kerry Carpenter have a combined 229 hits and 102 runs batted in for the team. Sawyer Gipson-Long is going to pitch, and thus far this season he has a perfect game, a 2.70 earned run average, and 16 strikeouts. Gipson-Long will face the Oakland Athletics for the very first time in his professional baseball career.
Expert Betting Tips
Now that the Detroit Tigers are having a good week, they are taking Sawyer Gipson-Long out of the game, despite the fact that he has been pitching well through the first 10 innings. Since the beginning of the baseball season, the Oakland Athletics have been the weakest team in the league. They are not profitable for bettors, and the fact that they have lost eight games in a row implies that everyone on that side is ready for the season to be over. The 5.40 ERA and 1.58 WHIP over the course of his career show that Ken Waldichuk has not been a good pitcher. My prediction is that the Oakland Athletics will play their finest game of the season here at home, which will result in a victory for the team that is playing host.
