Cleveland comes into this matchup looking for their third win in a row to start this season, while Oakland is trying to get into the win column for the first time. The Athletics are hoping to get off to a decent start this year after last season’s debacle, but this team is not much better. Cleveland isn’t great offensively, but they can take advantage of a bad Oakland pitching staff. While Sears wasn’t horrible last season, Bibee is the better pitcher between the two. Take Cleveland here.
