Oakland Athletics vs. Seattle Mariners Pick

The Oakland Athletics red hot start to the season is now a distant memory as the team has fallen on some really difficult times recently. Cleveland just swept the Athletics in a four-game series.

Game 5: Detroit Tigers vs Oakland Athletics Picks

The 2012 ALDS series between the Oakland Athletics and the Detroit Tigers will wrap up on Thursday night at the O.co Coliseum with Game 5.

The home team has won all four of the games in this series, but Justin Verlander is going to be the favorite to make that trend stop to end this series. Though the truth of the matter is that Oakland had the home field advantage in this series, it would have felt like an epic collapse after going up 2-0 against the A’s.

Game 3: Detroit Tigers vs Oakland Athletics Picks

Home field advantage has held up thus far in the first two MLB betting battles of the ALDS, and tonight, the Oakland Athletics have to hope that that continues when they take on the Detroit Tigers, or their season will come to a crashing halt.

The Tigers knew what they had to do in the first two games of this series, and they did just that.

Game 1: Oakland Athletics vs Detroit Tigers Picks

The main portion of the MLB betting playoffs kicks off on Saturday night in Motown, where the Detroit Tigers hope to claim Game 1 of the ALDS against the Oakland Athletics.

It’s still amazing to think that Oakland is here in the playoffs as the No. 2 seed and the winners of the AL West. It was a remarkable comeback to get to this point, but now, every team is 0-0, and the A’s are clearly the team that lack the most experience and likely the most talent as well. Jarrod Parker gets the ball to start off this series, and he, like so many of the other Oakland pitchers, are about to embark upon the biggest games of their careers.

Texas Rangers vs Oakland Athletics Picks

And it comes down to the final day of the season. The AL West winner will be determined on Wednesday afternoon in the Bay Area, where the Oakland Athletics will hope to trip up the two-time defending AL West champs, the Texas Rangers.

The Rangers have fallen and choked away what was once a double digit win lead in the AL West. They need to win this game, or they are going to have to be playing in the Wild Card game on Friday, likely, but not necessarily at home.
