Why Bet on Oakland?

Monday’s 7-3 win over the Mariners clinched the final AL wild-card spot for the A’s. Oakland was one out into the game when Tampa Bay was eliminated with a 4-1 loss to the Yankees. The A’s went on to win after Matt Chapman broke a 3-all tie with a two-run drive in the seventh off Shawn Armstrong.Blake Treinen pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Mariners on Monday. Treinen didn’t get the save since it was a 7-3 game, but it was still an impressive outing that saw him throw just 10 pitches — seven of them for strikes. The scoreless inning lowers his ERA to a ridiculous 0.80 over 78 1/3 innings, and his WHIP is just a tick above that at 0.82.Pretty impressive for Oakland considering it finished last in the AL West the previous three years. The A’s have the third-lowest payroll among the 30 major league clubs at $78 million for their 40-man roster, ahead of only the White Sox and Rays. From an individual standpoint, Khris Davis is battling for the MLB home-run title. He hit No. 46 on Monday and leads the league in home runs and is among the leaders in nearly every power-related statistic, including slugging percentage and OPS.The A’s are batting .263 (702-for-2666) with 123 home runs and an average of 5.41 runs per game on the road (406 runs in 75 games), compared to .241 with 91 home runs and an average of 4.56 runs per game at home. They lead the majors in home runs on the road, rank second in runs per game and third in batting. The team record for 130 road homers in a season is in reach. The A’s are 31-13 (.705) in one-run games, the best record in MLB.Oakland’s Edwin Jackson (6-3, 3.18) is on the mound here. Jackson has completed at least five innings in three of his last four starts, most recently going 5 1/3 innings with two earned runs allowed against the Angels on Thursday. He yielded three hits, including one home run.

Why Bet on Seattle?

The Mariners haven’t made the playoffs since 2001, the longest drought in MLB, and obviously, that will continue. There were a few interesting things in Monday’s loss. Dee Gordon went 1-for-2 with a two-run homer. Not only did Gordon homer for just the fourth time this year, he also drew a walk; which was just the ninth time he’s been given a free pass this year.Mitch Haniger has hit safely in 42 of his last 49 games, dating back to July 31. During that span, he’s batting .330 (67×203) with 35 runs, 20 doubles, 2 triples, 8 home runs, 23 RBI, 2 HBP, 17 walks, a .384 on-base percentage and a .567 slugging percentage (.950 OPS). Haniger ranks 2nd in the Major Leagues in hits since July 31. Haniger has scored 87 runs and recorded 91 RBI this season. With 3 more runs scored, Haniger would become only the 13th player (done previously 28x) in club history to score at least 90 runs and record at least 90 RBI in a single season.Athletics at Mariners is scheduled for Wednesday night.The Mariners are 62-19 when scoring 4-or-more runs, but are 23-52 when scoring 3-or-fewer runs. The Mariners are 1 of 2 Major League clubs with a 1.000 winning percentage (74-0) when leading after 8 innings this season, joining Oakland (77-0). The Mariners are the only club in the Majors to have 5 pitchers make at least 25 starts apiece (Mike Leake-30, Marco Gonzales-28, Félix Hernández-27, James Paxton-27 & Wade LeBlanc-26).Felix Hernandez (8-13, 5.46) hasn’t pitched since Sept. 8 due to a sore right hamstring, but he returns for one last start this season. The start will be his last of 2018, and he’ll have one more year at $27 million left on his deal before he and the Mariners potentially have some tough emotional decisions to make about the future. Hernandez hasn’t won a game since June 30, going 0-7 with a 6.14 ERA in his last 10 outings, including the lone relief outing of his career.
