Seattle Mariners vs. Oakland Athletics Picks and Predictions

The Oakland Athletics are not a good baseball team despite defeating the Seattle Mariners last night 4-1. We’re not picking the Oakland Athletics because of their season of consistently terrible, resulting in their current record.

Most Profitable Team to Bet On

If we’re making free MLB picks on the moneyline in the Seattle Mariners game today, we’re picking the Mariners to win on Wednesday night in Oakland (-200 to -220).

Everything we can analyze suggests that the Mariners should win this game. Yet, don’t be surprised if Oakland is competitive with Seattle. After all, 9% of Oakland’s total wins in 2022 have come against the Seattle Mariners.

But still, you should take the Mariners (-1.5) and the favorable odds found on most online sportsbooks on the run line (-115 to -120) and parlay that with the Mariners on the moneyline to get the best value from the Mariners vs Athletics odds today.

Oakland and Kaprielian might have won an extra-innings game against Seattle back in August and completely shut the Mariners down last night, but Seattle is the better baseball team and should win this game.

Take a parlay of the Seattle Mariners on the money line and cover the run line spread.

MLB Pick: Mariners (-210)
