The Cleveland Indians and Chicago White Sox square off in Chicago tonight. Trevor Bauer and Hector Santiago will take the mound tonight. Take a look at the MLB odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Indians enter tonight’s’ game in second place in the AL Central, 2.5 games behind the Detroit Tigers for first place. Trevor Bauer will make his fourth start of the season; he enters with a 1-2 record, 2.76 ERA and 1.47 WHIP. Batters are hitting .161 against him this season. In his last start against the Yankees, he received a loss, tossing 6 1/3 innings while giving up six hits and two earned runs while striking out four. His last win came against Philly where he surrendered just one hit, giving up no earned runs and struck out five through five innings. Cleveland, as a team, has won six of their last ten games, however is 16-23 on the road this season. They are very much in pursuit of first place in the division.
The Sox enter in last place in the division, winning just four of their last ten games and are 17-15 at home this season. Santiago comes in with a 3-5 record, 3.03 ERA and 1.24 WHIP. In his last game in Kansas City, he surrendered three hits and one earned run though eight innings pitched. In his last home start he got the win against Oakland lasting 6 1/3 innings giving up four hits and one earned run while striking out six.
I will side with the road Indians in this game. I believe in Bauer and the Indians offense to be able to produce runs at www.sportsbookroom.com.
