Cleveland is 7-2 in their last 9 Sunday games and 2-7 in their last 9 games. The over is 7-2 in Cleveland’s last 9 Sunday games. Oakland is 79-29 in their last 108 games against the AL Central and 1-6 in their last 7 games. The under is 17-5 in Oakland’s last 22 Sunday games. Cleveland is 5-11 in these two teams last 16 head to head meetings.

McKenzie has started the season with a pair of losses on his record, but he hasn’t really pitched too badly. The Guardians were really struggling prior to this series, but have taken the first two games and will be going up against a pitcher that has yet to pitch in the majors this season. I like the over in this game as I think both teams will have plenty of scoring opportunities.
