Indians fall again

The Indians dropped their second straight to Oakland on Saturday, 7-2, giving them their fourth loss in five games. The Tribe has scored 10 runs total over the five contests. Cleveland is 44-37 on the season and 17-24 on the road. The Indians are putting up 4.86 runs per game this season while allowing 4.20 per contest.

Mike Clevinger takes the mound for Cleveland on Sunday. He is 6-3 through 16 starts with a 3.03 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP. Clevinger has pitched a total of 104.0 innings this season and has 94 strikeouts with 34 walks.

Athletics win fifth straight

The Athletics have won six straight following the 7-2 win over Cleveland on Saturday. Oakland is 46-38 overall and 22-20 at home. The Athletics are putting up 4.62 runs per game this year while allowing 4.38 per contest.

Frankie Montas will be the starter for Oakland this afternoon. He has pitched in six games in 2018 and has a 4-1 record with a 3.68 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. Montas has recorded 22 strikeouts and 13 walks over 36.2 innings of work.

MLB Betting Trends


The Indians have lost five of Clevinger’s last six road starts and five of their last seven games against AL West opponents.


The Athletics have won four straight at home and 12 of their last 14 overall. They also have won 19 of their last 26 Sunday games.


Oakland has been rolling the last few weeks and has been able to lock up Cleveland in this weekend series. Montas has looked pretty good on the mound so far. He doesn’t have a great strikeout-to-walk ratio, but Cleveland’s bats have gone silent out West. Clevinger has pitched well, but I don’t trust him to get the run support today.


The Pick: Oakland Athletics +110
