MLB betting odds are close on the Saturday matchup between the Oakland Athletics and Cleveland Indians.
It is the second game of a three-game set between the two teams and the second game of a 9-game road trip for the A’s. Gamblers making a MLB bet should be aware that the Indians have done very well in this series of late.
MLB betting trends do favor Cleveland but the pitching matchup does not. Before this MLB betting series began the Indians had won 7 of the last 10 games at home against the A’s. The pitching matchup could favor the A’s as Vin Mazzaro should get the call. He is 2-3 on the season but has a nice ERA of 2.95 as MLB bet numbers show. David Huff should go for Cleveland and he is 3-3 with a 6.26 ERA this season as MLB betting numbers tell us. Mazzaro pitched well against the Rockies in his last start but Oakland didn’t get him any runs and that has been the story of Mazzaro’s season. With an ERA below three he should have more than just two wins. Saturday’s start will be the seventh of Mazzaro’s career as MLB betting information shows and the first against the Indians. Huff did not pitch well in his last start against Cincinnati, giving up six earned runs on nine hits.
Betting the under in this MLB betting matchup has been profitable recently. Before the series began yesterday, 7 of the last 10 meetings between the two teams in Cleveland had gone under the MLB betting total at the sports book.
Making a MLB bet at the sportsbook on the A’s when they are on the road has been a risky proposition this season. Oakland has a losing record home and away but at least at home they are close to .500 in MLB betting. On the road their pitching is weak and their offense just doesn’t score many runs. Oakland is in the bottom third of the league in runs scored and their pitching is just average. That is not going to win many games in MLB betting.
Cleveland isn’t much better than the A’s. They have a below average record at home and they struggle on the road. The only advantage that Cleveland has is their offense which ranks in the Top 10 as MLB betting stats show. The problem is that Cleveland’s pitching is terrible, ranking right near the bottom of the league as MLB betting numbers tell us.
