Cleveland at Oakland
Saturday 08/01 09:05 PM Eastern
1.5 units on Oakland +105 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.08) RESULT: WIN
The Cleveland Indians are a long way from home and this is their third straight road contest. The Indians are 4-9 in their last 13 games as a favorite. Cleveland is a bad offensive team at #22 in runs scored, and Oakland is a big park, which is tough on offenses. The Indians go with young Cody Anderson, who has been touched-up for 11 runs in his last two starts. Oakland ranks #15 in runs scored and the A's are 13-6 when their opponent scores two runs or fewer in their previous game. Cleveland has not seen Athletics starter Aaron Brooks, who went 6-5 with a 3.71 ERA in 17 starts for Triple-A Omaha this season, making this a great situational spot for the home dog. Play the Oakland Athletics.
