The White Sox (68-50) have the AL Central sewn up, but this is still a massive series for the A’s as they look to secure the first wild card seed.

Oakland lost 5-3 to the Yankees yesterday, but they’ve still been on a real tear of late winning eight of their last 10, and I think they can get back on track here with Dallas Keuchel (7-6) throwing.

Keuchel’s ERA has ballooned to 4.50 following a rough outing against the Twins last week, and I think he might be in trouble against an Oakland side that ranks third in runs scored against left-handed pitching. Keuchel has lost his last two starts. 

Frankie Montas (9-8) will start for the Athletics, who are currently ranked second behind the Houston Astros in the race for the AL West title with a 68-50 record. The Dominican right-hander registered no-decisions in his last two starts. 

Verdict

The A’s have played to a steady 26-23 record following a loss this year, so I think the $1.85 about them is a good bet with their ace Frankie Montas on the mound.
