Free Total Pick
The Indians have won 6 of their last 8 games and are the hot team here, but the trend in this series is to the road team with the visitor taking the money in 7 of the last 8. Indians’ Carrasco has been impressive since leaving the bullpen going 3-0 in 4 starts with only 2 runs allowed. Tigers’ Lobstein looked very good in his first career start and may be able to repeat that tonight.
