Betting Odds: Guardians -1.5 (+130) - Over/Under (7.5)

Pick: Guardians -1.5 (+130)

The Oakland Athletics and the Cleveland Guardians will meet for the second game of their series here on Saturday night in Cleveland. These teams are pretty familiar with each other at this point having already played a four game series in Oakland to open up the season and now they are playing the reverse fixture in Cleveland over the weekend. It has been all Cleveland throughout the first five games between these two teams. As the Cleveland guardians come into this game on Saturday holding a distinct four to one advantage over Oakland, with their victory on Friday night clinching the season series prior to the last two games. 

The Oakland Athletics are having a hard time throughout the early part of the season and they have plenty of off the field distractions as well. It was announced earlier this week that the team will be moving to Las Vegas, but they will play their games in California for the next few seasons while their brand new ballpark in the sin city is being built. But now they need to focus on their current 2024 and so far it has not been a great start for Oakland, as they have dropped 12 out of their first 20 on the season. 

They have looked rough against Cleveland, as they have struggled against the Guardians this season, only managing a single victory in five games. Due to their lackluster performance against Cleveland this season, they have already lost the season series against the Guardians, and now they will just look to salvage the rest of this series on the road throughout the weekend. They were humiliated in the opening game of the series on Friday night as Cleveland put up double digit runs and continued their dominance over the Athletics this season which carried over from their series that opened up the year when Cleveland won three out of four in Oakland.

Cleveland has looked tremendous throughout the early part of the season, which has caught many people by surprise. A lot of people expect them to be a rebuilding club with a brand new manager however, they defied those expectations throughout the early part of April. As they come into this game with one of the best records of Major League Baseball throughout their first games of the year. They have picked up 14 victories throughout the early part of the season and four of those victories have come against Oakland already. 

They will look to grab their fifth victory over the Athletics here on Saturday night. As they look to follow up on their series opening victory on Friday night and their series closing victory at Fenway Park on Thursday. Cleveland has covered the spread in four out of their five games against Oakland and each and every time they’ve won, it’s been by more than one run. They put up 10 runs on Friday night and they will look a replicate that performance throughout this game on Saturday as they look to grab their third consecutive victory on the season.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- Cleveland is 4-1 against Oakland 

- Cleveland has covered -1.5 against Oakland 4 times

- Cleveland is out scoring Oakland 39-13 

I expect a similar result like we saw on Friday night in the opening game of the series between Cleveland and Oakland. As I look for the Cleveland Guardians to grab another convincing victory for the second night in a row against Oakland and their third consecutive victory on the season. They have one of the hottest teams in baseball throughout the early part of the season and I don’t see that anytime soon. Not only though I look for Cleveland to grab the victory here on Saturday night. I also look for them to cover the spread in the process.
