Cleveland, OH (The Spread) - Having ace Corey Kluber on the mound hasn't attributed to victories for the Indians of late, especially when Cleveland takes on Kansas City.
The Indians are winless at 0-4 in Kluber's last four starts versus the Royals, who are 4-1 in their last five trips to Cleveland. The Tribe is also 1-4 in Kluber's last five home starts, 1-4 in his last five starts as a home favorite and 6-15 in his last 21 starts overall.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book GT Bets, the Indians are -159 money line favorites versus the Royals, who are +148 money line underdogs. Given Cleveland's recent woes with Kluber toeing the rubber, Kansas City could be a nice value play for bettors today when the two teams square off at 12:10PM ET.
