Indians vs. Phillies MLB Pick
Will the Phillies win their fifth consecutive game when they host the Indians tonight at 7:05PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Indians are -134 money line favorites over the Phillies, who have odds of +124 to pull off the upset. With Trevor Bauer set to face Jerad Eickhoff in the pitching matchup, the over/under is sitting at 8 runs.
Philadelphia has won four straight games and is 6-1 in its last seven games versus a right-handed starter. The Phillies are also 5-1 in their last six games coming off a win, are 4-1 in their last five games versus a starter with a WHIP greater than 1.30, and are 5-2 in their last seven interleague home games as well.
Cleveland is 24-53 in its last 77 interleague road games and has lost four of its last five games versus National League East opponents. The Indians are also winless at 0-4 in their last four interleague games versus a team with a winning record.
MLB PICK: The Indians haven’t been profitable with Bauer on the mound, losing nine of his last 13 starts and 1-5 in his last six starts during Game 2 of a series. The Tribe is also 1-5 in its last six games in Philadelphia, including last night’s loss when Ryan Howard hit a walkoff home run in extra innings. Eickhoff has been a pleasant surprise for Philadelphia this season and should pitch well again at home versus Cleveland’s sporadic offense.
