There is one MLB pick today. Please note that first pitch is scheduled for 6:10pm EST.
Take Detroit Tigers (+158) on the ML against Cleveland Indians risking 3% to win 4.74%.
(Fulmer and Bauer must start for wager to have action.)
The Cleveland Indians have dominated this series up to this point, having won three straight. Tonight's matchup, however, gives the Tigers their best chance to avoid the sweep.
Trevor Bauer has looked impressive to start the season; however, he has struggled against the Tigers in his career. He is 3-5 overall with a 7.97 ERA and WHIP of 1.915 in 11 career outings! The Tribe are just 1-7 in his last 8 appearances against Detroit and 1-6 the last 7 times he has taken the mound at home against their division rivals. Given how quiet the Tigers' bats have been this series, we wouldn't be surprised if tonight is where their offense breaks out.
It's hard to go against the momentum of Cleveland, however, it is not like there have been lighting the world on fire to start the season. They have been survived by their solid pitching thus far, but their offense has been inconsistent at best. They have scored 3 or less runs in 7 of their last 8 games, and eventually their pitching is going to off an off-night. We believe tonight is where they are going to stumble. It is incredibly difficult to sweep a divisional opponent in a 4-game set and we don't believe that happens here. Even though it is still early in the season, Detroit can ill-afford to get swept in this series. We expect an all0out effort from the Tigers as they save face and salvage at least one game in this series. From a motivational angle, there is a lot of value back Detroit as underdogs tonight.
