Indians drop series opener

The Indians suffered a 5-4 loss in the series opener against the Mariners on Thursday. Cleveland is now 13-10 overall and 7-4 at home. The Tribe are putting up 3.50 runs per game this season while allowing 3.00 runs per contest.

Corey Kluber gets the start for Cleveland tonight. He has five starts on the year with a 3-1 record, winning his last three starts. Kluber has a 1.96 ERA and a 0.76 WHIP this year. Through 36.2 innings of work, Kluber has six walks with 37 strikeouts.

Mariners win three straight

The Mariners have won three straight thanks to Thursday’s 5-4 win at Cleveland. Seattle is now 14-10 overall and 9-5 on the road. The Mariners are putting up 4.21 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.83 per contest.

Erasmo Ramirez gets just his second start of the season tonight for Seattle. He lasted 4.2 innings against the Rangers last week, allowing five earned runs with one strikeout and one walk. He gave up two home runs in the loss.

MLB Betting Trends

Seattle

The Indians have won seven of their last nine road games and seven of their last nine Friday games. However, they are just 1-6 in Ramirez’ last seven starts.

Cleveland

The Indians have won five of their last six games following a loss and 40 of their last 54 games at home. They are also 39-15 in Kluber’s last 54 starts.

Prediction:

The Indians aren’t worth betting on straight up, with the odds so lopsided. But, I think there is value on the run line of -1.5. Kluber should be able to have another good start and Ramirez is not someone to rely on. Even with Cleveland not a dominant lineup, they should produce multiple runs on the struggling pitcher.

 

The Pick: Cleveland Indians -1.5 (-130)
