Oakland Athletics at Colorado Rockies odds, picks and prediction

Bet at

The Oakland Athletics (34-25) and Colorado Rockies (23-35) play the second contest of a three-game set at Coors Field Saturday with a 9:10 p.m. ET first pitch. Let’s analyze BetMGM Sportsbook‘s lines around the Athletics vs. Rockies odds with MLB picks and predictions.

LHP Cole Irvin is the projected starting pitcher for the Athletics. He is 3-7 with a 4.12 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, 6.4 K/9 and 1.6 BB/9 over 63 1/3 IP through 11 starts.

Irvin has allowed four or more runs in each of his past three outings. He lost his past four decisions and is winless over his previous five starts. “Swirvin’ Irvin” has been all over the place lately, failing to post a quality start in each of the past three outings.

LHP Kyle Freeland is the projected starting pitcher for the Rockies. He is 0-0 with a 4.50 ERA, 2.00 WHIP, 6.8 K/9 and 7.9 BB/9 over 8 IP through 2 starts.

Freeland made his season debut May 25 after a stint on the 10-day injured list due to a strained shoulder, and he has pitched exactly four innings in each of his two outings. While he hasn’t allowed many runs or hits, he has had an issue with location, walking seven batters.

Money line (ML)

The ATHLETICS (-140) are worth playing, although this will be your typical high-scoring Coors Field affair, so it won’t be for the faint of heart.

Freeland hasn’t lasted longer than four innings in either of his starts, so the bullpen will be involved early. Colorado’s bullpen ranks 29th in the league with a 5.53 ERA, so there will be plenty of runs to be had.

Irvin has been very giving, too, and a start at Coors Field looks like it could be disastrous for him.

Run line/Against the spread (ATS)

The ATHLETICS -1.5 (+105) are a decent small-unit play at near even money. It won’t be a slam-dunk play by any means, but the difference is in the bullpens. Colorado’s ‘pen is a disaster, while Oakland relievers have a respectable 3.86 ERA. They’ll save this game despite Irvin’s wildness.

Over/Under (O/U)

The OVER 11 (-120) looks like a big number, but we have some very, very shaky starting pitchers toeing the slab for both sides. The offense is going to eat them up.
