Can the Cleveland Indians silence the bats of the Detroit Tigers once again when the two meet tonight at 6:10PM ET?
Tuesday, April 10, 2018
Location: Guaranteed Rate Field – Chicago, Illinois
Weather: Sunny, 38 degrees, 7mph Winds
Time: 6:10PM ET
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Cleveland is favored at home today, as the Indians are being given odds of -185 to win tonight. The Tigers are getting a money line of +175 to win. The over/under total is currently listed at 8.5 runs.
The pitching matchup has Josh Tomlin on the mound for the Indians to face Matthew Boyd of the Tigers. Boyd was a hard-luck loser against the Royals last week. He allowed one run over six innings on four hits. Tomlin got shelled in his first start against the Angels, allowing eight runs over three innings. He gave up four home runs and eight hits.
PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION
The public is backing Cleveland today. The Indians are currently getting 62 percent of the wagers for this game as the favorite against Detroit.
Detroit has nobody listed on the injury report for today’s game. Cleveland outfielder Lonnie Chisenhall has been put on the DL due to a calf strain and is expected out until late May.
The Indians opened the series on Monday with a 2-0 win that featured just six hits. Corey Kluber pitched eight innings and struck out 13 while allowing just two hits to get his first win of 2018. Andrew Miller earned his first save with a perfect ninth. Francisco Liriano pitched six innings, allowing two runs on three hits with four strikeouts and three walks.
The two runs in the game came on a home run from Bradley Zimmer. It brought in himself and Yan Gomes. Nobody on either team had multiple hits in the game and the Tigers were held to just two altogether.
I don’t feel great about Cleveland being such a big favorite today. The Indians aren’t exactly hitting all that well and Tomlin really struggled in his first start while also dealing with a bit of a back injury. Boyd pitched well against the Royals and I think he can give the Tigers a chance to win tonight on the mound. I am going to take a chance on the underdog tonight.
