MLB Pick: Will Rogers betting the Orioles +130 odds on June 20th 2017

Cleveland Indians vs. Baltimore Orioles
MLB Pick: Baltimore +130 odds (June 20th 2017)

The set-up: The Indians surged into first place in the AL Central with a four-game sweep of the Twins in Minnesota, where they outscored them 28-8. The Indians then opened a four-game road series at Baltimore last night with a 12-0 pasting of the Orioles. Cleveland has now ripped off six consecutive victories while scoring a total of 52 runs (8.67 per), to move a season-high six games over .500 at 37-31. The Orioles were coming off wins Saturday and Sunday (had nine HRs!) but their pitching staff was ravaged for double-digit runs for the fifth time in 10 games. Baltimore also set an AL record by allowing at least five runs in 16 consecutive games (Orioles are 5-11 in that span). Baltimore was once 22-10 (in games played through May 9) but is now 34-35, having lost 25 of its last 37 games.

The pitching matchup: Two struggling starters take the mound Tuesday night, Josh Tomlin (4-8 & 5.83 ERA) for Cleveland and Chris Tillman (1-5 & 8.07 ERA) for Baltimore. Tomlin was victorious last time out versus the Los Angeles Dodgers but he was hardly impressive in allowing four runs on seven hits over five innings. The Indians are 5-8 in Tomlin’s starts this season (he’s failed to complete three innings three different times) and on the season, opponents are batting .314 against him. Tomlin is 3-3 with a 5.29 ERA in his career vs. Orioles. Tillman takes the mound mired in a five-start losing streak. He was roughed up for five runs and a season-high 11 hits over 5 1/3 innings at the White Sox last time, which came on the heels of him allowing nine runs in just 1 1/3 innings against the Yankees in his previous outing. Tillman is 5-2 with a 4.17 ERA in eight career starts against the Indians (Baltimore is 5-3).

The pick: Can the Orioles really be this bad? No faith in either of tonight’s starters but I’m going to give the home team a shot in this one.

MLB Pick: Tigers vs. Indians Runline Betting Pick from Mike Lundin: April 16th 2017

Detroit Tigers vs. Cleveland Indians
MLB Runline Betting Pick: Indians -1.5 -105 odds (April 16th 2017)

The Cleveland Indians recorded 19 hits in Saturday’s 13-6 win against Detroit, and I like their bats to stay hot here in the rubber-match of this three-game set.

Carlos Carrasco (1-0, 2.13 ERA) takes the ball for Cleveland. The right-hander is really solid and went 2-0 with a 0.51 ERA in four starts vs. the Tigers last season. He’s allowed just three runs on eight hits and a walk with 14 Ks through 12 2/3 innings of work this season.

Left-hander Matthew Boyd (1-1, 5.40 ERA) takes the ball for Detroit. It will be Boyd’s first career start against Cleveland, but note that the Indians are 20-7 in their last 27 home games vs. a left-handed starter and the Tigers are 3-7 in Boyd’s last 10 starts when their opponent scores five runs or more in their previous game.

Let’s roll with Cleveland on the run-line.

World Series Game 6: Bob Harvey betting the Indians +145 odds over the Cubs on November 1st 2016

INDIANS VS. CUBS BETTINGCleveland Indians vs. Chicago Cubs
World Series Game 6 Betting Pick: Indians +145 odds (November 1st 2016)

The Cubs staved off elimination with a 3-2 victory in Game 5 as Aroldis Chapman recorded an eight out save. Jon Lester picked up the win while Kris Bryant slugged his first home run of the series. However the Indians still own a 3-2 lead and have two chances—at home—to wrap up their first title since 1948.

Game 6 features an intriguing pitching matchup with Jake Arrieta (1-1, 3.78 ERA) vs. Tomlin (2-0, 1.76) Arrieta took a no-hitter into the sixth inning in Game 2 at Cleveland and ended up with the win, his first of the postseason. Surprisingly though, Tomlin has had the better postseason of the two.He allowed two hits in 4 2/3 scoreless innings in Game but didn’t figure in the decision. Tomlin has surrendered two or fewer runs in each of his last eight appearances going back to the regular season. Tomlin is going on three days’ rest but only threw 58 pitches in Game 3.

Cleveland is 11-1 to the UNDER in its last 12 playoff games and 8-1-2 to the UNDER in its last 11 home postseason games.

THE UNDER IS 4-1 in the first five games of the series and is 8-2 to the low side in the last in the last 10 meetings.

Mostly clear skies and temps in the upper 50’s are on tap for Cleveland tonight.

Bottom line on Game 6: The starters will get the job done, the bullpens will be lights out and a clutch hit will decide it. Let’s plan on a low- scoring game and WS title for the Tribe.
