The under is 17-4 in the last 21 Indians games on astroturf. Cleveland is 45-17 in its last 62 games overall.
The Blue Jays are 4-12 in their last 16 Thursday games. Toronto is 3-7 in its last 10 games overall.
Bieber has received plenty of offensive support from one of the best offenses in baseball and although he has a high hard-hit ball rate against him, the rookie has shown the promise and type of strikeout stuff to dominate an outing. Indians should get to Gaviglio early and often, leaving me wanting to take the road team on the runline.
