Entering Sunday action Oakland is on an upswing but taking on the Tigers can do that for a team. They had taken the first three games of the series making a dent in what is still a terrible road record at 8-15. It has been bot offense and pitching as the A’s have scored 28 runs and only yielded 6. They need more from top hitter Matt Chapman though.
Despite middling results Oakland keeps throwing Brett Anderson. Prior to his last start at least you could say that he doesn’t give up many long balls but he gave up three at Seattle. The walk and hit rates might be good enough for a guy who could rear back and get a strikeout when needed but that is not what Anderson is. The bullpen is not elite in support either.
Cleveland has also been facing one of the weaker teams in the league as they hosted Baltimore over the weekend. This group continues to struggle offensively. Jose Ramirez is batting under .200. It is great that he has 12 steals but he has only 10 extra base hits on the season. They need that ratio to change or else this team is never going to get untracked.
Carlos Carrasco has been good but they need more from him. There is nothing wrong with his ratio of 62/7 but for some reason he is way more hittable this season. The good news is that he has not given up a run in his last two starts so perhaps he just needed a little time to warm up. In four of his nine starts he has shutout the opposition so there is not too much reason to worry.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
I do not like Anderson even though on the surface he is having as much success as Carrasco.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cleveland RL
I think the Indians will be priced based on Carrasco’s peripherals. Look to back them on the run line.
