Oakland Athletics  

The Oakland Athletics enter this Monday night pairing sporting a 50-40 record that ranks them 3rd in the AL West. Currently 10-games behind the Houston Astros, it’s clear Oakland needs some help if they’re to challenge for the divisional lead. But since the Athletics are 4-1 in their last 5 matchups, they might just have the momentum to upset Houston this evening. However, tonight’s matchup marks the 9th time this season Oakland has faced Houston. And since the Athletics are 1-9 on the year versus the Astros, it doesn’t seem like that momentum will be culminating in a victory. Frankie Montas will get the start from Oakland tonight. He’ll be looking to improve on his 4-2 record as well as his 3.83 ERA and his 1.46 WHIP.

Players to Watch: Jed Lowrie (16 HR, 62 RBI, .290 BA), Mark Canha (11 HR, 34 RBI, .267 BA), and Khris Davis (21 HR, 59 RBI, .248 BA).

Houston Astros

The Astros fly into this evening’s contest flashing a 61-31 record that ranks them 1st in the AL West. That record gives Houston a 3 ½ game lead over their nearest competition, the Seattle Mariners. All in all, Houston enters tonight’s pairing riding a 6-game winning streak. By the looks of it, Monday’s baseball betting online odds are predicting that streak will continue. To help prove them right, the Astros will be sending Gerrit Cole to the mound this evening. Cole is 9-2 on the season and brings a 2.70 ERA as well as a 0.97 WHIP to the mound this evening.

Players to Watch: Alex Bregman (17 HR, 57 RBI, .281 BA), Carlos Correa (13 HR, 49 RBI, .268 BA), and Evan Gattis (18 HR, 62 RBI, .257 BA).
