The Cleveland Indians and the Boston Red Sox will meet on Friday from Cleveland. All odds for this game are updated at Oddsmaker sportsbook.
The Indians are definitely out of the postseason race, but enjoyed a victory on Thursday. They scored five runs on 10 hits in all and you Ubaldo Jimenez had a strong start to earn the win. In tonight’s game Cleveland will start Chris Seldon who has only pitched four innings so far this season.
The Red Sox are fading and lost the opener of this series to boot. The Red Sox could only muster three runs on nine hits and Felix Doubront was average in four innings of work. Tonight the Red Sox will start Clay Buchholz who is pitching better as of late. He has allowed 124 hits in 122 innings of work this season.
Cleveland is 8-20 in their last 28 games overall, 1-7 in their last eight games as an underdog, and 0-8 in their last eight games against a right handed starter. Boston is 11-5 in their last 16 games against a left handed starter, 1-5 in their last six games as a favorite, and 16-5 in Buchholz’s last 21 starts against the AL Central. Boston is 2-7 in their last nine games in Cleveland.
This is a tough game to call either way. All of the value though lies with Cleveland as moneyline underdogs so we will take them with sportsbook betting.
