Team Outlook and Scouting Report

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING DOWN

The Athletics are competing to make the playoffs but their chances are on a downward trend. In our pre-season forecast they had a 44.1% chance of making the playoffs. On 3/19 they had a 45.5% chance before dropping to 4.3% on 5/17. From the start of the season to now their chances are down significantly to 20.8%. They have a 1.7% chance of winning their division. The odds still give them a sliver of hope to win the AL at 3.2% (30/1 odds) and a 1.6% chance of winning it all (60/1).

Athletics' Season Forecast Changes

Sportsline not only has a pick on every game and line our Experts provide winning Daily Fantasy Optimal Lineups every day.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: B

At 43-38 the Athletics are exceeding expectations. The combined projected win total based on per game money lines is 42.3 wins. If you consider winning as a clear-cut underdog or winning by 2+ as a slight favorite, or by 5+ as a favorite then they have 26 good wins vs 23 bad losses. They have won 50% of their road games and were expected to win 50%. At home they have a 56% win percentage vs an expected win rate of 54%. Their record over the last 3 weeks and win% (13-8, 62%) is better than their expected 53% win percentage. The Athletics should be a slightly above average team based on simulations where they won 52.9% of the simulations played vs every other team as if they were playing on a neutral court with players available in the playoffs (#13 in the league). They have moved up from #17 in the league back on 5/6.

Their record should be better. Their average run differential is +0.53 which ranks #6 in the AL, but their rank based on win percentage is #8. They are the #6 ranked team in run differential (based on all teams' road stats) and the #7 ranked team among home teams. Their average run differential in their past 12 games is +1.83 which ranks them #4 over this stretch, slightly better than overall.

They have 2 likely wins where they are winning >60% of the simulations which translates to being at least a -150 favorite, 4 more games where they are favored by at least 53%, and just 1 game where they are a clear underdog. The rest of the games are toss ups.
