A’s win wild one for 11th straight, are cashing in big for bettors

The Oakland A’s are on a wild run. If you’ve backed them over the past two weeks, you’re in good shape.

The Oakland Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins Wednesday afternoon in a wild game that saw the A’s score three runs in the bottom of the tenth without recording a single hit to complete a comeback and win 13-12. The A’s trailed 10-7 in the sixth and tied it in the bottom of the ninth. They then trailed 12-10 before two walks and two errors plated three runs to extend the A’s win streak to 11 games.

The A’s streak is the longest in the major leagues since Oakland won 11 in row from May 16-27 in 2019. The team improved to 12-7 with the win and now holds a half game lead in the AL West over the Seattle Mariners. The A’s opened the season 0-6, and this current run is unprecedented in MLB history. Oakland became the first team to open a season 0-6 and then win 11 straight at any point later that season.

The current run would be quite profitable if you were an A’s backer. Oakland was a moneyline underdog in the first two games against their rivals, the Houston Astros, but has been favored in all nine games since against the Arizona Diamondbacks, Detroit Tigers, and Minnesota Twins. If you bet $100 at DraftKings Sportsbook on the A’s to beat the Astros the first game at +148, and then rolled winnings over each successive game, you’d have won $94,297.44.

Oakland gets a day off before traveling to face the Baltimore Orioles for three games this coming weekend. Feel free to keep rolling over those winnings!
