Public Betting Trends
According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Cleveland a slim favorite at home today, as the Indians are getting odds of -115 to win, while the Mariners are listed with a money line of -105 to prevail. The over/under total has been set at 9 runs. When it comes to public betting, Seattle is getting 73 percent of the wagers on the road. This information is subject to change, however, so be sure to check out our MLB Public Betting Page for updated figures on the game.
Cleveland has alternated wins and losses over its last six games following a 12-4 dismantling at the hands of the Mariners on Saturday. Cleveland is now 14-11 on the season and 8-5 at home. The Tribe are averaging 3.64 runs per game this season while allowing 3.52 per contest.
Josh Tomlin gets the start today, hoping to get on track himself in 2018. He has appeared in four games, starting three, and is 0-3 with a 9.24 ERA and 2.05 WHIP. Over just 12.2 innings of work, Tomlin has given up 13 earned runs, eight home runs and four walks to go with seven strikeouts.
Mariners hammer Cleveland pitching
Seattle has been able to put up a total of 22 runs on Cleveland in three games following Saturday’s lopsided win. Seattle is now 15-11 overall and 10-6 on the road. The Mariners are putting up 4.54 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.85 per contest.
Marco Gonzalez is getting the start on Sunday for the Mariners. Gonzalez has started five games this season and he has a 2-2 record with a 5.56 ERA and a 1.46 WHIP. Over 22.2 innings of work, Gonzalez has 27 strikeouts with four walks.
MLB Betting Trends
Seattle has won four of its last five road games and four of its last five against AL Central opponents. However, they are just 1-6 in their last 7 Sunday games.
The Indians are 6-2 in Tomlin’s last eight home starts and 9-4 in his last 13 starts overall. They are just 2-6 in his last eight home starts against a winning team.
Cleveland hasn’t had an offense it can rely on and it has become a problem this series with the Indians’ pitching not performing well either. I don’t see that changing with Tomlin on the mound today, as he has been giving up multiple home runs in each start. Seattle has a batting order that can get hot, and it has been pretty hot this series.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -105
