Today's tip will be about one of the most popular MLB rivalries, the Giants vs. the Athletics. These teams will be meeting at the RingCentral Coliseum in a three-match game series set to end on Sunday, 22.

The Giants are the superior team here, as they rank at position one in the MLB with a PCT of 0.645. On the other hand, the Athletics are not badly off, as they're at position eight with a PCT of 0.566. However, the Athletic's recent form is in doubt after winning just once in their last five games.

The current status

Oakland AthleticsAthletics going into this clash with a win

The Athletics seem to have regained their form after winning 4 - 5 against the White Sox. In the last ten games, they have recorded an equal number of wins and losses (five wins & five losses).

Still focusing on the last ten games, the totals for six of them were over 8.5. In addition, seven of them ended with one team winning/losing by two or more runs.

San Francisco GiantsIt’s all about the title for the Giants

There's no doubt that the Giants have been the most consistent team this season. Although they lost 2 - 6 to the Mets in their most recent clash, that's a tiny part of their story this season. They have a fantastic record of eight wins in their last ten matches.

Besides, six of these games have ended with totals of under 8.5. Also, in six of those games, one team won/lost by two or more runs.
