The A’s and Indians open up their season Friday night at Progressive Field.
The A’s have been playing great ball as of late and have won five of their last six games.
The Indians have been struggling, losing four of their last five games.
Kendall Graveman is 7-6 with a 4.15 ERA and 1.38 WHIP. He’ll be on the mound for Oakland. Trevor Bauer is looking to start this series out strong and is 7-4 with a 3.65 ERA and 1.26 WHIP
The A’s have caught fire as of late and are on the outside looking in, as their playoff changes are long but gone.
Sometimes that scenario allows a team to relax and they end up playing better, the A’s look to be that team.
They have scored 18 runs in their last three games and have allowed just 25 runs over their last nine games.
Kendall Graveman has been superb and in his last start he pitched a complete game, giving up just three runs against the Rays.
In his last eight starts, he has given up four runs just once and the other seven starts he’s given up three or less, typically going deep into the game.
The Indians have a comfortable lead in the AL Central and are 15 games over .500. They have struggled as of late though and the Tigers still have their eye on them 4.5 games back.
They have generated just 14 runs over their last five games, well off their season average of 4.9 which ranks fifth in the MLB.
Trevor Bauer has also been poor lately as he’s given up 14 runs over his last three starts.
He was cruising prior to that but three straight poor starts is cause for concern.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction:
From a seasons long average perspective, the Indians are the favorite in this one but considering the A’s are hotter offensively and Graveman has pitched better than Bauer in recent history, the A’s should take this one down.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: A’s ML
This game will have a tendency to be over if anything.
Oakland should get to Bauer because hot bats against cold pitching should generate runs for the A’s.
Graveman is pitching well but the Indians still score the 5th most runs in the league, so they might get to Graveman or the bullpen.
MLB Free Score Prediction: A’s 6-4
