MLB betting on Thursday includes the opener of a four-game series between the Cleveland Indians and Oakland Athletics.
Two young pitchers are scheduled for this bet on MLB game as Justin Masterson is on the hill for Cleveland while Oakland counters with Brett Anderson.
MLB betting numbers have Masterson at 4-7 on the season with a 4.25 ERA while Anderson is 9-10 with a 4.37 ERA. Masterson got a no-decision in MLB betting last time out against Kansas City even though he pitched well, allowing just four hits and four walks.
Anderson has won two straight in MLB betting. He pitched seven good innings against the Twins last time out, allowing just two runs on five hits. This will be his first career MLB betting start against the Indians.
Cleveland has not been very good in MLB betting this season at home or on the road. At least on the road they are getting plus money in MLB betting. The Indians have been in the Top 10 in offense this season but that could change as they are now without Grady Sizemore. He was their best hitter and the lineup suffers without him. The pitching for Cleveland has been bad and that is the main reason they are having a poor season in MLB betting.
The A’s have similar numbers to Cleveland but they arrive at them differently in MLB betting. The A’s offense is just average and their pitching is below average as bet on MLB numbers indicate. That is not a good combination in MLB betting. The A’s don’t even have a winning record at home which makes them a tough team to take in bet on MLB action at the sportsbook.
The A’s have won seven of the last 10 home games against Cleveland but this is their first meeting in Oakland this season. Last year the A’s won two of the three meetings in Oakland and two of those three went under the total with one tie.
