Oakland Athletics 2024 Season Preview

The Oakland Athletics face a difficult 2024 season due to off-field drama and continual struggles to improve their roster during the offseason.

Notable players Ryan Noda, Brent Rooker, Zack Gelof, JP Sears, and Paul Blackburn, Alex Wood, and Ross Stripling have their work cut out for them for a chance to make the postseason this year due to below-average team projections.

See all of the A’s odds, as well their win total, championship odds, and much more.

Betting on the Oakland Athletics

Below you can see examples for betting on the Oakland Athletics.

Athletics Spread (Run Line)

When betting on baseball, you’ll be faced with three standard options: the moneyline, over/under and run line.

The run line is a bet on the margin of victory, like a point spread. But because baseball is low scoring, the spread will almost always be -1.5 for the favorite and +1.5 for the underdog. The payouts for each will just be adjusted based on each team’s strength.

Here’s a brief example of a run line for a hypothetical A’s game:

  • Detroit Tigers (+1.5)
  • Oakland A’s (-1.5)

As shown above, the A’s are favored by 1.5 runs against the Tigers; the minus sign (-) indicates Oakland is the favorite, while a plus sign (+) is used to denote the underdog. Bettors who wanted to back Oakland here would be “laying” those 1.5 runs, meaning for their bets to cash the Athletics would need to win by two runs or more. Bettors who selected the Tigers +1.5 would win if Detroit won outright or kept a loss to 1 run.

Athletics Moneylines

Many first time bettors are wary of run line bets, especially when riding with the hometown team. In that case, moneyline wagers are often seen as the safer way to go. A moneyline bet is a bet on who wins the game -- no run line involved.

Let’s use the same example from before to understand the moneyline better:

  • Detroit Tigers +150
  • Oakland Athletics -180

Just as with run lines, the minus sign (-) signifies a team is favored, while the plus sign (+) means a team is the underdog. The moneyline odds, written in American odds format here, indicate how big or small a favorite that team is, written in increments of $100. For example, to win $100 on the Athletics, a bettor would need to risk $180. On the flip side, a $100 bet on the Tigers would net $150 if they pulled the upset.

Odds can differ from sportsbook to sportsbook, so always make sure you shop for the best line with The Action Network app.

Athletics Over/Unders

Betting on a team to win or cover a run line isn’t the only type of wager allowed on MLB games. Almost all sportsbooks will offer a total on the game, also known as an over/under. This bet is not on the winner of the contest, but on the number of runs the two teams will combine to score; sportsbooks hang a number, and bettors can wager either over or under that total.

If the number for our hypothetical A’s-Tigers matchup was 8 runs, over bettors would require 9 points or more to cash their tickets, while those who bet the under would need 7 or fewer runs. If the two teams scored exactly 8 runs between them, that bet would push and all wagers would be refunded.

Athletics Props

Some bettors find more entertainment and success betting on more specific outcomes than the result of the game. Prop bets cover a wide market of wagers on player stats, discrete in-game events, and any style of yes/no question. Many props are bets on specific players and their performance, such as betting Jesus Aguilar over 1.5 hits on a given night, or betting that Shintaro Fujinami will strike out over 9.5 batters. Some props can be shorter term, such as betting on the number of runs scored in the first five innings or who will hit a home run. Offerings tend to vary depending on the sportsbook, so use our sportsbook reviews to find the best bet for you.

Athletics Futures

Expectations are very low in Oakland, so bettors still have to shop for the best line to get good odds on A’s futures bets. Futures are bets that focus on long-term outcomes, like the Athletics to win the AL West, win the American League Pennant, win the World Series, or even individual awards like winning league MVP.

How to Bet on the Oakland Athletics

Sports betting is not legal in California as of now. The 2024 legislative session began earlier this year and there has been little to no discussion surrounding sports betting. California sport betting will be arguably the top market in North America once it potentially becomes legalized in 2025.
