    Prediction

    Indians. 6, Tigers. 1

    Moneyline (ML)

    The Indians. (-182) have won 20 consecutive games against the Tigers. (+165), including a three-game sweep in Detroit last weekend. The Tribe average just 3.88 runs per game, ranking 27th in the majors, but they piled up 21 runs in the three-game sweep against the Tigers.. Normally betting more than -170 is not my thing, but roll with Cleveland until Detroit can snap their funk against the Indians..

    New to sports betting? A $10 bet on Cleveland will net a $5.49 profit if it wins, while a winning $10 wager on Detroit will return a profit of $16.50.

    Run line/Against the spread (ATS)

    The INDIANS -1.5 (+100) are a good bet, as not only have they won 20 straight in the series, but they have topped the Tigers. (+1.5, -121) by two or more runs in 14 of the previous 15 battles.

    Over/Under(O/U).

    The UNDER 9.5 ( -110) is the play, mainly because of the Indians.. Cleveland ranks 30th in batting average, at .201, and 29th in OPS at .636. On the mound, the Indians. rank first in ERA (2.50), WHIP (0.99) and quality starts (18). It’s a tremendous recipe for plenty of under results.
