The Oakland Athletics will host the Cleveland Indians to close their three-game set from the Oakland-Alameda Coliseum this Wednesday on the MLB Network. The A’s stole last night’s contest with a walkoff single from Tony Kemp, 4-3.
Guardians Betting Preview
Cleveland is 4-2 after the late loss to Oakland last night. The Indians stalled over the final four innings, and they paid the price for it with a loss. The Indians have looked much better since a slow start on Opening Day, and they've found some consistency at the plate, despite last night's resort. Cleveland is batting .258 at the plate, with a 4.11 team ERA. Jose Ramirez and Steven Kwan have each recorded hits in the last four games.
Hunter Gaddis will return to the mound for Cleveland. The rookie pitcher had a tough time in his season debut at Seattle, giving up four runs in less than four innings, and he’ll look to improve against an underwhelming Oakland lineup.
Athletics Betting Preview
Oakland dropped to 2-3 after stealing last night’s contest with Cleveland. The Athletics kept things close throughout, and earned another one of those gritty wins. Oakland is batting .293 at the plate, with a 6.07 team ERA. Tony Kemp has supplied runs in both matchups, knocking in the game-winner last night to down the Guardians.
Kyle Muller will start for Oakland. The former Braves pitcher looked sharp in his A’s debut, surviving five innings while striking out three and allowing just one run.
Cleveland vs Oakland Trends
Cleveland is 3-2 against the spread this season, with a 3-2 over/under record. Oakland is 2-2 ATS, with a 2-2 O/U record.
Corey's Free Pick
Oakland impressively survived Shane Bieber yesterday, but with both teams set to face youthful arms here, I like leaning on the high-octane lineup to muster up some offense, and finding a way to win. Cleveland carries a distinct advantage at the plate, and this final series matchup should simply come down to a matter of execution. There’s some security in the ML here, so back Cleveland to win this game straight up.
