Oakland Athletics 2024 World Series Odds

Oakland Athletics MLB Betting

There is hopelessness. And then there is dead. The Oakland A’s are a lame-duck franchise until 2028, when they are finally supposed to move to Las Vegas as a permanent home on the famed strip. In the meantime, the A’s will play the final year of their lease at the dilapidated Oakland Coliseum, where strange wild critters make occasional press box appearances, and the concrete is rotting. After this year, the A’s will either stay at the Coliseum or play elsewhere, such as Salt Lake City. Oakland lost 112 games last year and could lose more than that in 2024. Gamblers avoid them as the plague that they are. Future market action on the A’s is non-existent, with the exception of one of their few remaining fans betting with their broken hearts.

2024 MLB World Series Betting Odds

Oakland Athletics MLB Betting Odds

In 2023, the Oakland A’s had a record of 50-112 and finished 5th in the American League West Division. Offensively, Oakland ranked 30th for runs scored, 30th for batting average, 30th for OPS, 21st for home runs, and 6th for stolen bases. Defensively, Oakland ranked 29th for earned run average, 29th for WHIP, 25th for strikeouts, 30th for quality starts, 28th for fewest errors, and 28th for bullpen ERA. Oakland was -2652 on the moneyline and -1047 on the run line.

Last season, the A’s were a favorite of gamblers to go against. That will again be the case in 2024, but buyer beware. Oakland’s opponents will be severely overpriced, and a loss to the A’s by any chalk will be a bankroll buster. The run line or road games are where Oakland’s opponents will offer the most value.

Key offseason acquisitions include LHP Alex Wood, RHP Ross Stripling, RHP Trevor Gott, INF Abraham Toro, OF Miguel Andujar, RHP Mitch Spence, and LHP Scott Alexander.

Key offseason departures include 2B Tony Kemp, RHP Trevor May, RHP James Kaprielian, and 3B Jonah Bride.

The A’s needed semi-competent pitchers in the rotation, if only to spare their younger pitchers from being worked too hard. Wood and Stripling should be fine, especially in the spacious Coliseum, and projections expect everyone in the rotation to have an ERA under 5.00. That doesn’t sound like a big deal, but it is.

Still, last year’s team lost 112 games, and it doesn’t seem like that’s their absolute floor. If the baseball gods mix some injuries in, this team might set records for the worst kind.

Oakland ranks 30th for MLB payroll.

Oakland Athletics Key Players

RHP Paul Blackburn is the number one starter of the Athletics. Last year, he was 4-7 with a 4.43 ERA and 1.54 WHIP. This will be his third season in the Oakland rotation.

RHP Mason Miller is the projected A’s closer, pending spring training. He has a career of 33/1 innings pitched.

LF Brent Rooker is coming off a career year in 2023. Rooker produced 61 runs, 20 doubles, 30 home runs, 60 RBI with a .246 average and .817 OPS. Rooker was a 2023 AL All-Star.

Oakland Athletics Manager

The unfortunate Mark Kotsay is the A’s manager. Kotsay was a journeyman player who played for the A’s from 2004 through 2007. He was A’s coach from 2016 through 2021.
