MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The White Sox are just 18-43 in their last 61 road games and 1-6 in their last seven divisional games. They also are 10-26 in their last 36 games against a right-handed starter.

Cleveland

The Indians have won Clevinger’s last eight starts against AL Central opponents and 49 of their last 70 home games.

Prediction:

The Indians are really hot at the plate right now, which should continue against Giolito, who really shouldn’t be pitching in the majors right now. Clevinger is the much better starter of the two and he should be able to keep Chicago limited on the scoreboard. Given the big odds, I would recommend taking the Indians -1.5 runs, as I think Cleveland will win by multiple runs.

 

The Pick: Cleveland Indians -1.5 (-155)
