Indians top Red Sox
The Cleveland Indians are coming off back-to-back wins over the Boston Red Sox this weekend. At 87-68 overall, the Tribe are locked into the third seed in the AL playoffs after winning the Central Division. Cleveland is 38-36 on the road this year. The Indians are putting up 5.03 runs per contest while giving up 4.02 runs per contest.
Corey Kluber takes the mound for the Indians this evening. He has started 31 games this year and has a 19-7 record with a 2.93 ERA and a 0.98 WHIP. Kluber has 205 strikeouts and 31 walks over 203.0 innings pitched.
Sox fall to Cubs
The Chicago White Sox dropped a home series to the Chicago Cubs and they have lost five of their last seven games. The White Sox are now 61-94 overall and 29-49 at home. Chicago is averaging 4.11 runs per game while allowing 5.18 per contest.
Dylan Covey will take the mound for Chicago this evening. He has started 19 games this year and he has a 5-13 record with a 5.33 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. Covey has pitched 109.2 innings this year and has 81 strikeouts with 49 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Indians are 12-2 in Kluber’s last 14 road starts against a losing team and 26-6 in his last 32 starts within the AL Central.
The White Sox are just 1-7 in their last eight home games and 2-9 in their last 11 games following a loss.
Kluber is clearly the better pitcher and Cleveland is clearly the better team. Kluber has three starts against the Indians this season and he has won all three starts, posting a 1.29 ERA over 21 innings of work. He has 28 strikeouts with just three walks. I would expect Kluber to run over the White Sox again tonight.
The Pick: Cleveland Indians -255
