Toronto Blue Jays vs. Cleveland Indians Betting Pick from Jesse Schule: April 20th 2014

Betting Pick: Toronto -102 odds (April 20th 2014)

Things appear to be on the up and up for the Jays, who have won back to back games in Cleveland, and will go for the sweep Sunday. Jose Reyes is back, and he wasted no time making his mark, hitting an RBI single to put the Jays ahead 3-0 in the second inning of yesterday’s game.

Toronto will hand the ball to Brandon Morrow, who exited early from his last start after using 98 pitches to get throw 3 1/3 innings. Morrow (1-1, 5.52) allowed a pair of runs on four hits and four walks, fanning four in a 9-3 win over the Twins.

He pitched a great game in his only start versus Cleveland last year, allowing a single run on six hits over as many innings.

Carlos Carassco will toe the slab for the Tribe, and he’s coming off consecutive losses. Carassco (0-2, 7.84 ERA) was torched for five runs on six hits and three walks in 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the White Sox his last time out.

Melky Cabrera is one of just one of three players in the Jays lineup that has seen Carassco, and he’s 4-for-8 with five RBIs lifetime versus the right-hander.

Why do they call him “THE ICE MAN”? Some think that it has something to do with his hockey profits. He’s been just as cool and calculating at the ballpark (+$5,716 YTD), and His record with his FREE MLB PLAYS (+$44,000 2013) has made him somewhat of a LEGEND on Facebook.

MLB Pick: Brandon Shively expects Masterson to bounce back on April 18th 2014

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Cleveland Indians
Prediction: Cleveland -139 odds

Toronto (Hutchison) @ Cleveland (Masterson)——Toronto will put Hutchison on the mound tonight and he has faced 5 Cleveland batters in his career. The results are that the Indians are 8-for-14 vs. him with a couple of stolen bases. Hutchison has alternated quality outings followed by a rough outing this season. If the trend continues, he will have a rough outing after tossing 5.1 innings of shutout ball vs. the offensively challenged Tampa Bay Rays last week. Hutchison’s struggles have come against lefties this season as they have a OBP% of .400. He has a 8/7 K/BB ratio vs. left handed hitters and this spells trouble vs. this Indians lineup.

The Indians will call on Justin Masterson who has a 4-1 career record vs. the Blue Jays with a 2.79 career ERA. Last year he made two starts vs. Toronto and went 12.2 IP allowing 3 ER on 7 hits. After a solid outing to begin the season, Masterson has had two shaky starts vs. divisional teams. I look for him to bounce back at home tonight. He will need to hold Melky Cabrera and Bautista in check, but he owns the rest of Toronto’s lineup.

Cleveland is now 4-1 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and are 10-4 in their last 14 vs. a right handed starter as they have a hefty lineup of left handed hitters and switch hitters. Toronto is 4-10 in their last 14 vs. a team with a losing record and they are 2-5 in Hutchison’s last 7 road starts.

I am just now getting heated up on the diamond as Premiums are +$5,430 the Last 7 days. I have an EASY WINNER tonight with in-depth analysis included telling you WE WILL WIN THIS GAME, easily. You guys know when I get heated up, I simply catch fire. After a sub-par first week of baseball, I have found my groove and will continue to pound the Books and Build our Bankroll leading into football season, Guaranteed!

Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers Betting Pick & Odds from Ben Burns: April 16th 2014

Ben Burns - MLB PickCleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers
Betting Pick: Detroit -144 odds (April 16th 2014)

After winning with the Tigers on Saturday, I successfully played against the Tigers on Sunday. After having Monday off and a rainout yesterday, I’m going back with them here.

The Tigers are already 4-1 here on the year and they’re now 111-67 here the past 2+ seasons. During that stretch, the Indians are 75-94 on the road. That includes a money-burning 20-34 (-6.8) as road underdogs in the +125 to +150 range.

Not surprisingly, the Tigers have dominated the Indians here in recent years going 34-10 the last 44 meetings here. They took last season’s series by a commanding 15-4 mark.

Sanchez should also be happy to see Cleveland. He’s 4-0 with a stellar 2.13 ERA over his last six starts vs. the Indians.

To his credit, McAllister did pitch very well at home last time out. However, he got roughed up (6.75 ERA, 2.50 WHIP) in his lone road start. McAllister had some success against the Tigers earlier in his career but he got rocked by them last season, going 0-2 with a 9.00 ERA over three matchups. He lost his last two games against the Tigers by a combined score of 17-5.

All things considered, I feel this price could easily be higher. Consider Detroit.
