- Detroit Tigers vs. Cleveland Indians
The Detroit Tigers take on the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central showdown at Progressive Field in Cleveland. They open a three-game series, and while the Indians had a day off on Monday, Detroit met Baltimore at home.
The Tigers are the worst team in the league. They’ve been eliminated from the playoff race a long time ago. On the other side, the Indians are 1.5 games behind the wild-card spot. Hereof, the hosts desperately need to sweep of the Tigers at home.
Adam Plutko will take the mound for the Indians tonight. The right-hander is 6-4 this season, tallying a 4.42 ERA and a 1.24 WHIP. Plutko is 3-0 in four starts and three relief appearances against Detroit in his career. The Indians are 6-3 in his previous nine starts.
On the other side, the Tigers haven’t decided who will toe the slab in the opener. Their pitching staff is the third-worst in baseball with a 5.27 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.
The Indians have won five of their last seven games overall and five of their previous ten contests at home. The Tigers have dropped five of their previous seven games overall and six of their last eight tilts on the road.
Considering the betting trends, the hosts shouldn’t have any problems to win tonight. The Indians have owned the Tigers lately, winning 14 head-to-head meetings in a row. Also, the Indians are 18-2 in their last 20 home encounters with the Tigers.
The Indians cannot afford an upset here. If they want to make it to the playoffs, the Indians must win their next three meetings with Detroit. Cleveland covered the spread in 12 of its last 13 home wins over Detroit and 14 of its previous 15 victories overall. Take the hosts to win by two or more runs.
- Cleveland Indians -105 over Detroit Tigers by two or more runs
