MLB Betting Trends

Cleveland

The Indians have won six straight road games against a left-handed starter and they are 7-1 in their last eight road games.

Detroit

The Tigers are 2-8 in their last 10 game 2’s of a series. They have also lost four of Hardy’s last five starts.

Prediction:

The Tigers had their chance for a win on Friday, but the bullpen blew up. Cleveland is the better team overall and they have a good chance to win again tonight due to the better pitching on the mound and more consistent hitting. The Tribe have dominated the division and the Tigers aren’t a team that should be able to compete with them most nights.

 

The Pick: Cleveland Indians -200
