Pick: Guardians ML (-120)

The Oakland Athletics and the Cleveland Guardians will face off for the fourth time this season and wrap up their four game series here on Sunday afternoon. This has been a mostly one-sided series throughout the first three days of the season. As Cleveland holds a three to nothing advantage coming into the finale on Sunday. Cleveland will look to grab their fourth consecutive victory to open up the year while Oakland will look to get into the winners column here in this one.

Carlos Carrasco will take the hill for the Cleveland Guardians in the finale of their four game series against the Oakland Athletics here on Sunday afternoon. It’ll mark his return to the franchise after a couple of years away from Cleveland after a long and storied career with the team. He will look to keep their hot start to the regular season intact as they look to record their fourth consecutive victory to open up the year. They have had solid pitching throughout the first three games, and they have limited Oakland’s damage and cruised to three consecutive wins. Now they will look to grab a fourth consecutive win and complete the series sweep here on Sunday before continuing their road trip out West with a series against Seattle next week. 

Cleveland is putting up nearly 9 runs per game to open up the season as they are experiencing a lot of success at the plate which is rare for this Cleveland team early on in the season. The hope is that this is a prolonged thing and not just because they are playing one of the youngest and one of the worst teams in all of baseball this season to open up the year. They will look to keep the hot hitting going with a fourth consecutive outburst against Oakland as they look to increase their runs per game number from 8 to 9 or more in the finale of this series. They have been hammering the baseball early on in games and that is something they will like to continue throughout this game as well.

Oakland has been rather dreadful to open up the season, and they are winless through their first three games of the year. With all the drama surrounding the franchise off of the field with their pending move to Las Vegas, they have to distract everybody from the mess going on within the organization. As they are off to another rough start, and they are once again struggling to attract fans to the ballpark early on in the regular season. Paul Blackburn will be making his debut start of the season for Oakland here on Sunday afternoon at home.

They will look to grab their first victory of the season here on Sunday afternoon in the finale of this series with Cleveland. They have been dreadful at the plate and their pitching has been absolutely awful throughout the first three games of the year. As they have already given up over 25 runs through the first three games of the season and that is something that will need to change, otherwise they are in for a very long year. Unfortunately, for Oakland, considering the trajectory of this franchise, that is something that is unlikely to change at the moment, and potentially throughout the future as well. 

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Cleveland is 3-0 against Oakland 

- Cleveland is 2-0 after a win this season 

- Cleveland is averaging 8.6 runs per game this season

Cleveland is off to a fast start to the regular season and I expect more of the same here on Sunday afternoon as they wrap up this series with Oakland. As I look for the Cleveland Guardians to complete the four game series, sweep of the Oakland Athletics here on Sunday out on the West Coast. It has been an offensive explosion for Cleveland throughout the first three games and I look for more of the same in this one as I look for Cleveland to pick up yet another comfortable victory to wrap up this four game series to open up the regular season.
