MLB picks for Wednesday, September 15th

Athletics -1.5 (+110) vs. Royals

Since there isn’t no favorable player props for today’s slate, we are going to opt for a plus-money run line play in the Oakland Athletics. The Athletics are looking to bounce back after they lost 10-7 on Tuesday night to the Kansas City Royals. With the defeat, Oakland has now lost three straight games and four consecutive road games. Meanwhile, the Royals are trending in the other direction, winning 4 out of their last 5 games.

Despite the crushing loss on Tuesday night, Oakland should be able to score some runs on Royals starting pitcher Mike Minor. Minor is 8-12 with a 5.05 ERA through 28 starts. His ERA at home is a little bit higher at 5.15 with opponents hitting .252. The Royals have lost Minor’s last three home starts by an average of 3.6 runs per game. Meanwhile, Sean Manaea will be on the mound for A’s, who has pitched well on the road this season with a 3.64 ERA and .219 opponents batting average.
