Indians getting on track
The Indians have won four of their last five coming into tonight thanks to wins over the Tigers and Brewers. Cleveland is now 34-29 on the season and 14-18 on the road. The Indians are putting up 4.95 runs per game this season while allowing 4.44 per contest.
Carlos Carrasco is getting the start tonight. He is 7-4 on the season with a 4.23 ERA and a 1.19 WHIP. Carrasco has pitched a total of 83.0 innings this season and has 83 strikeouts and 20 walks.
White Sox on an upswing
The Chicago White Sox are playing some of their best baseball of the season by winning four of their last six. Thank includes a surprising series win at Boston this weekend. The White Sox are 22-41 overall and 10-19 at home. Chicago is putting up 3.90 runs per game this season while allowing 5.14 per contest.
Lucas Giolito gets the start for the White Sox this evening. He carries a 4-6 record with a 7.08 ERA and a 1.66 WHIP. Giolito has pitched a total of 61.0 innings this season and has 39 walks with 31 strikeouts.
MLB Betting Trends
The Indians have won five of Carrasco’s last six Monday starts and 21 of their last 27 Monday games overall. They also have won 39 of their last 52 division games.
The White Sox are just 3-10 in their last 13 division games and 1-6 in their last seven games following a win.
Chicago is on a nice uptick, but I don’t see Giolito keeping that going because of his poor walk-to-strikeout rate. Cleveland has the hitters to beat him up and Carrasco should be able to allow less damage. He still has the ability to miss bats and can turn in a strong start.
The Pick: Cleveland Indians -225
