At first glance many bettors may look to the under here, but I believe that would be a mistake. The Indians bats are smoking hot right now with 24 runs in their last 4 games and face Tiger starter Anibal Sanchez who they’ve had success against in the past. Detroit’s hitting has been spotty but they appear to have Cleveland’s starter Zach McAllistars’ number crushing him for 10 earned runs over 6 innings in his last two starts against them. The current form of the pitchers benefits us with the linesmaker posting a low total. Take the OVER 8 (+100).
