Indians cruise in opener

Cleveland is on a five-game winning streak right now following a 7-2 win over the Reds on Saturday night. The Indians are 49-38 overall, 24-20 on the road and 48-37 with the under. Cleveland has Trevor Bauer getting the start today. He is 7-6 on the season with a 3.74 ERA.

Shane Bieber tossed a gem on Saturday to lead Cleveland to the win. He pitched eight innings and allowed just two runs on four hits with no walks and eight strikeouts. Bieber improved to 8-3 on the season. At the plate, Francisco Lindor connected on two solo home runs, giving him 14 on the year. Roberto Perez added four hits and two RBI while Jake Bauers had two hits and two RBI.

Reds fall at home

Cincinnati had a 3-game losing streak come to an end on Saturday in the loss to the Tribe at home. The Reds are 41-45 on the season, 24-20 at home and 55-29 with the under. Cincy has Tyler Mahle taking the mound today. He is 2-8 on the season with a 4.36 ERA.

The Reds didn’t have much to offer on Saturday, as they amassed just five hits while giving up the seven runs on the mound. Yasiel Puig was the only standout player, as he had three hits and two RBI. He connected on his 20th home run of the year and now has 51 RBI for the season. On the mound, Anthony DeSclafani threw six innings and allowed two runs, but didn’t take the loss. That went to Michael Lorenzen, who pitched two innings of relief and gave up two runs as well. He is 0-2 on the year.

MLB Betting Trends

Cleveland

The Indians have won five straight road games and six of their last seven interleague road games.

Cincinnati

The Reds are 9-3 in their last 12 home games and 11-5 in their last 16 against a team with a winning record.

Prediction:

Bauer has been a little shaky as of late, allowing five earned runs in two of his last three starts. However, he has bounced back from bad outings pretty well, giving up just one run in between the two bad starts. He’s actually quite strong on the road, posting a 2.56 ERA. Mahle has given up at least three runs in six of his last seven starts and he doesn’t get very deep into games. I trust Bauers more than Mahle right now, so I will side with Cleveland getting the two-game sweep.

MLB Prediction: Cleveland Indians -115
