Mercado helps power Indians

MLB Betting Trends


The Tigers are 7-21 in the last 28 Trumbull starts. Detroit is 14-38 in its last 52 road games.


The Indians are 5-2 in their last seven games overall. Cleveland is 41-14 in its last 55 Wednesday games.


Cleveland. Don't think twice. Look at the Tigers' record and definitely side with the hosts, but it's your call on the runline. With Civale mowing down opponents like he isn't a rookie, I'm banking on that continuing while Turnbull's struggles continue.
