Athletics vs. Mariners prediction and pick

I was dead wrong yesterday when I said the Mariners would win in a blowout, but I'm not going to shy away from making the same prediction today.

The Athletics will be rolling with Zach Neal today, who will be making his second start this season after serving as a reliever for the majority of the 2023 campaign. His first start didn't go so well when he give up five hits, four walks, and four runs (two earned) against the White Sox. He now has a 6.88 ERA on the season.

If the Mariners can't score runs on this guy, then it's officially a sign their hot streak is over.

Bryce Miller is set to get the start for the Mariners. It'll be his third start against the A's this season. He gave up just one earned run in his first two starts against them, so I expect his dominance of Oakland to continue tonight.

I'll back the Mariners on the -2 run line and hope they wake up after last night's performance.
