Oakland Athletics MLB Betting

Despite playing in the worst and most dilapidated stadium in Major League Baseball and having one of the game's lowest revenue sources, the Oakland Athletics have been a remarkable success story. Oakland had made the playoffs three straight years and in six of their last nine. The problem for the A's has been the postseason. In their previous 12 playoff seasons, Oakland has failed to make it to the World Series. The A's are a slight favorite over the Houston Astros to win the American League West Division title. But that betting status may be based on past results rather than current realities.

2021 Season Preview

The 2020 Oakland Athletics finished 36-24 and 26-32-2 under the total. After winning the wild card round, the A's were eliminated 3-1 by the Houston Astros in the ALDS. MLB metrics had the A's ranked 17th for runs scored, 17th for OPS, and 18th for home runs. On the hill, Oakland ranked 5th for staff earned run average, 10th for WHIP, 10th for quality starts, and first for the bullpen. So too did Oakland commit the fourth fewest errors in baseball.

It was not an excellent offseason for the A's as they lost Liam Hendriks, Robbie Grossman, Joakim Soria, Marcus Semien, and Tommy La Stella.

Manager Bob Melvin took over in 2011 and has led the A's to six playoff appearances and a win percentage of .527.

First baseman Matt Olson is a two-time Rawlings AL Gold Glove winner. Last season was a terrible one at the plate with a .195 average and .734 OPS. But Olson was given a pandemic pass and is projected for 35 home runs and 100 runs batted in 2021. Olson did manage 14 dingers in 2020.

Third baseman Matt Chapman is a two-time Rawlings AL Gold Glove winner and 2019 AL All-Star. In 37 games for 2020, Chapman hit nine doubles, ten home runs and compiled a .812 OPS. He is projected for 33 home runs in 2021.

Right hand starter Mike Fiers is projected as the number one man for 2021. Fiers was 6-3 with a 4.58 earned run average in 2020. His WHIP was 1.37.
