Rangers Athletics Betting Tips – Everything On The Line For Athletics In Final Series Versus Texas

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 9/30/2012 7:14:37 PM

After splitting a four-game series against the Texas Rangers last week, the Oakland Athletics still have hope of catching their American League West rivals for the division lead when their regular season schedule wraps up at home this week. The Athletics will need to sweep the series to have any chance at the division title, but even a pair of sports betting wins should be enough to clinch one of the Wild Card spots.

Oakland rocked Rangers’ starter Martin Perez for five runs in less than one full inning in a 9-3 win last week, and will get another shot at the 21-year old in a game that Texas hopes will not have major implications on the way its season plays out. The Rangers are more concerned with what happens once the postseason begins since their spot is already guaranteed, so they will try and get as many innings as possible out of Perez even if he struggles. The Athletics were able to leave Jarrod Parker in for six innings of that 9-3 win, and they will hope for a similar effort this time around as the young righty struck out eight and allowed just three earned runs in the betting sites win.

The Rangers should feel more comfortable with Matt Harrison on the mound assuming that he doesn’t get bumped out of this start as one of their top-3 arms heading in to the postseason. Harrison earned his 18th win of the season in Texas’ only victory against the Athletics in the previous series, a game in which Travis Blackley really struggled. Blackley was pulled after giving up five earned runs in a single inning of work, and a similar performance in the online sportsbook rematch could lead to the Rangers clinching top spot in the division.

Regardless of how much pressure is on the Athletics to wrap up this series with a win and hold off the teams pushing for that second Wild Card spot, the pitching matchup in this game will favor Oakland. For as good as Ryan Dempster has been all year with both the Cubs and Rangers, the club won’t want to push him too hard in a meaningless game and could even yank the start altogether. The Athletics meanwhile have come too far not to finish strong at this point, and will send AJ Griffin to the mound to close out the series. Griffin is 6-1 with a 2.80 ERA, and has held opponents to one run or less in four of his last six starts. Both of these teams are destined to reach the playoffs, and after wrapping up their respective seasons with seven of their final nine games against one another it will be interesting to see what happens if they meet again in the postseason.
