Indians lose in extras
Cleveland saw its 3-game win streak come to an end on Saturday in a 4-2 loss to the Tigers in 12 innings. The Indians are 33-29 overall with a 13-18 record on the road. Cleveland is putting up 4.93 runs per game this season while allowing 4.49 per contest.
Corey Kluber gets the start for the Indians today. He carries a 9-2 record this season with a 1.96 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP. He has pitched a total of 91.2 innings this year and has 95 strikeouts with 10 walks.
Tigers bounce back
After losing late on Friday, the Tigers got back to winning on Saturday with the walk-off home run. Detroit is now 31-35 overall and 21-15 at home. The Tigers are putting up 4.20 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.60 per contest.
The Tigers send Artie Lewicki to the mound today for his second start and eighth appearance. He is 0-1 on the season with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. Lewicki has 14 strikeouts with eight walks over 18.2 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Indians have won nine of their last 12 overall and 19 of their last 26 Game 3’s in a series. They have also won 45 of Kluber’s last 62 starts.
The Tigers have lost five of their last seven games overall and 12 of their last 16 Sunday games. They also are 1-6 in their last seven games against a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15.
Kluber is still a very dominant pitcher and I think he will have plenty of success against the Tigers today. Detroit has been very average at the plate in most games and they definitely don’t have the pitching to contend with Kluber. Their bullpen is very shaky.
The Pick: Cleveland Indians -260
