Oakland Athletics 2023 MLB Preview, Odds & Betting Props

The Oakland Athletics had a disappointing 2022 season, finishing with over 100 losses for the first time since 1979. While they may improve in the upcoming season, it’s likely that they will finish last in the AL West. The team is currently in a rebuilding phase and has traded key players like Matt Olson, Sean Murphy, Matt Chapman, and Frankie Montas for younger prospects.

Off the field, there are concerns about the team’s future in Oakland as they consider a possible move to Las Vegas. As a sports betting analyst, it’s important to consider these factors when placing bets on their games. The team’s focus on developing younger talent rather than competing for wins may impact their performance on the field. Additionally, potential off-field distractions such as relocation rumors could also affect their play. It may be wise to approach their games with caution and consider other factors such as opposing team strength before placing any bets.

What to expect in 2023?

According to ZiPS projections, the Oakland Athletics are expected to finish with a 72-90 record and another last place finish in the AL West. The team has added some inexpensive veteran talent such as Aledmys Diaz, Jace Peterson, and Jesus Aguilar to help maintain competitiveness on the field.

There is some potential in the pitching staff with new additions like Shintaro Fujinami and Drew Rucinski, along with prospects Ken Waldichuk, J.P. Sears, and Kyle Muller. However, these moves may only be small steps forward for a franchise that seems to lack urgency until their stadium situation is resolved.

The team’s success may also depend on their ability to outsmart their opponents in an era where innovative strategies are quickly adopted by others. As a sports betting analyst, it’s important to consider these factors when placing bets on Athletics games. It may be wise to approach their games with caution and consider other factors such as opposing team strength before placing any bets.
