Cleveland at Oakland

1 unit on Oakland +116 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 2.16) RESULT: LOSS
The Cleveland Indians and the Oakland A's have something in common, and it isn't a positive trait. The A's and Indians both currently reside at the bottom of their respective divisions. Danny Salazar started the season at 5-1, but has really slipped since, as he has lost two straight, and five of his last seven. There are simply not a lot of positives on either side to this point in the season. Salazar has been as inconsistent as both these teams have, as the Tribe is just 1-5 in his last six turns when following a quality start, and Cleveland has not been good when saddled with the favorite label at just 3-9 in their last 12 games as chalk. Cleveland is also just 2-5 in the last seven meetings. We have a home dog with value here, so play on Oakland.
