Indians on an upswing

The Indians split a pair of games with the Cubs, but they have won four of their last five overall. Cleveland is now 13-9 overall and 7-3 at home. The Tribe are putting up 3.50 runs per game this season while allowing 3.00 runs per contest.

Mike Clevinger is starting for Cleveland tonight. He has started four games this year and has a 2-0 record. He has a 1.75 ERA with a 1.05 WHIP. He has 17 strikeouts with eight walks over 25.2 innings this season.

Mariners streaking

Seattle is coming off back-to-back wins over the White Sox in Chicago and they have won four of their last six games, all road games. The Mariners are now 13-10 overall and 8-5 on the road. Seattle is putting up 4.17 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.87 per contest.

James Paxton gets the start for Seattle today. He is making his sixth start of the season and has a 5.61 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP. Over 25.2 innings this season, Paxton has 34 strikeouts with 12 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

Seattle is just 1-10 in Paxton’s last 11 Thursday starts, but they are 7-3 in his last 10 road starts and 7-2 in his last 9 starts against AL Central opponents.

Cleveland

The Indians are 7-1 in Clevinger’s last eight starts at home and 13-3 in his last 16 starts overall. The Tribe have won 40 of their last 59 home games against a left-handed starter.

Prediction:

Seattle is the better hitting team, but Paxton has struggled with allowing runs. Clevinger has been pretty locked in, especially at home. Cleveland isn’t hitting terribly well but I don’t think they will need to in order to give Clevinger enough run support to win.

 

The Pick: Cleveland Indians -105
