The Oakland Athletics and Seattle Mariners will continue their three-game series at 10:10 p.m. ET. Chris Bassitt will be on the mound for the Athletics, while Marco Gonzales will start for the Mariners. We’ll go over some ideal picks on DraftKings Sportsbook centered around the game here.

Athletics vs. Mariners, 10:10 p.m. ET, ESPN+

Moneyline pick: Athletics -162

If the Athletics want to win the AL West and make it back to the postseason, they have to win their games against teams like the Mariners. The Mariners took Game 1 with a 6-5 win in extra innings on Memorial Day, extending their win streak to five games. Seattle is only 2.5 games behind the A’s for first place in the AL West.

Meanwhile, the Athletics have lost three consecutive games to division opponents. But they could be due for a win with Bassitt on the mound Tuesday night. The 32-year-old has a 5-2 record an ERA of 3.21 through 11 starts this season. Bassitt is coming off a tremendous month of May, where he possessed a 2.52 ERA and 38 strikeouts in 35.2 IP. This season, he has pitched well on the road, with a perfect 4-0 record and 3.44 ERA.

With those stats in mind, plus Gonzales making his first start since April 27 due to a forearm strain and only being limited to 3-4 innings on Tuesday night, this is a perfect spot to pick the A’s on the ML.
