The Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers will meet on Thursday in the rubber match of this series from Cleveland. All MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Indians looked simply outmanned by the Tigers yesterday and lost. They just scored three runs on five hits for the night and Derek Lowe struggled on the mound for the loss. The Indians will send Zach McAllister to the mound who has been pitching pretty well so far this season. In 56 innings of work he has allowed just 52 hits.
The Tigers claimed an early lead on Wednesday and were able to win easily. They were led on offense by Quintin Berry and on the mound by Max Scherzer who earned his 10th win of the season. Tonight the Tigers will send their ace and possibly the ace of the entire league, Justin Verlander to the mound. Verlander has won six of his last seven decisions and is pitching to a 2.42 ERA in 140 innings of work.
Cleveland is 4-1 in their last five home games as an underdog, 17-5 in their last 22 home games against Detroit, and 5-2 in McAllister’s last seven starts. Detroit is 5-1 in their last six road games against a right handed starter, 3-5 in their last eight games as a road favorite, and 38-13 in Verlander’s last 51 starts. Detroit is 10-3 in Veralnder’s last 13 starts against Cleveland.
We really like the roll Verlander is on right now and we will take the under for total runs scored in this game and hope McAllister can continue how he is pitching as well but prior to your wager get sportsbook promotion codes.
