Yankees split with Orioles
The Yankees are coming off a surprising four-game split with the Orioles. They suffered a pair of 1-run losses while earning 10-2 and 9-0 wins. New York sits at 60-31 overall this season and 27-18 on the road. The Yankees are putting up 5.21 runs per game this season while allowing 3.77 per contest.
Luis Severino gets the start for the Yankees this evening. He has started 19 games this season and has a 14-2 record with a 2.12 ERA and a 0.96 WHIP. Severino has pitched 123.1 innings this year and has 143 strikeouts with 31 walks.
Indians end losing streak
The Indians put an end to their four-game losing streak on Wednesday with a 19-4 victory over the Reds. Cleveland is now 50-41 overall and 29-17 at home. The Tribe is putting up 5.14 runs per game this season while allowing 4.24 per contest.
Corey Kluber takes the mound for the Indians this evening. Kluber has started 19 games this season and has a 12-4 record with a 2.49 ERA and a 0.88 WHIP. Kluber has amassed 123 strikeouts with 15 walks over 126.1 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The Yankees have won six of Severino’s last seven road starts and his last five starts against the AL Central.
The Indians are 6-1 in Kluber’s last seven Thursday starts. The Tribe are 62-27 in their last 89 home games.
This game will feature some great pitching, but I give the edge to Severino. His numbers are a little bit better and he has the better hitters to support him. Cleveland has been very up and down at the plate and the Tribe have struggled to find consistent winning. New York is the better team and they are giving the ball to their ace. Go with the Yankees.
The Pick: New York Yankees -110
