Money Line: -135 Oakland
We are getting a lot of value on Oakland today when they send Daniel Straily to the mound. Straily's record is not an accurate reflection of how well he has pitched this season. In his last three starts he has posted a 2.81 ERA, but has failed to receive run support from his teammates. That won't be an issue today as Oakland is scoring 5.6 runs per game over their past seven games with a .274 batting average.
The Indians are in a major hitting slump. Over their past seven games they have a .196 batting average and have scored a mere 3.9 runs per game. Ubaldo Jimenez has posted a 4.11 ERA this season and he has a 1.500 WHIP on the road. With Cleveland struggling at the plate, and Straily pitching so well right now, the A's are in easy call in this game.
