Cleveland at Toronto features one of the MLB teams on an absolute tear in the month of June. While the Rangers and Giants have been making more headlines, the Tribe come into this one having won 12 games in a row. Now they a Toronto team at 43-37 that are languishing after making the playoffs last year. Even in the face of all of this, the Indians opened as a +101 road dog for the 7PM start. There is a lot of steam on this game. Which side has it and is it too late to hop on the train to valueville tonight?
Cleveland at Toronto : Indians Wave
Money has been coming in fast and almost all of it has been on Cleveland. No pitching change and the ML went from +101 to -123. This was just overnight and we have all afternoon for it too move some more. For Cleveland, all cylinders have been firing in this streak. Offensive production has come in for the tune of 76 runs. Pitching from the starters to the pen have been pulling their weight as well. 25 runs allowed with the starters getting under two runs in ERA. Now they get to tee off on a knuckleballer. Dickey is only 5-8 and his momentum coming into this one is just as lackluster as we will see.
At least Dickey gets some free outs with his floater. Surprised to see 13K’s in 17 innings. This is his only bright spot in his last three starts. 1-2 with a WHIP of 1.30 with five walks and a 4.58 ERA. People are seeing the lack of movement on his knuckler as of late and are punishing him. Now take this in contrast to how Cleveland’s Carrasco is doing. 21 to 6 ratio with an under two ERA and a WHIP of 1.12., He has been doing a good job of getting out of his jams and spreading the hits that are falling in against him. What helps Cleveland in this one is that Toronto played in altitude and have to lose time zones coming back home!
The pitching plus the travel considerations are fogging up the mirrors in this one. Plenty of steam on the Indians. HRWager advises you to follow suit with the runline. -1 1/2 +130 to avoid the chalk in this one. Good fortune and we will see you tomorrow here at HRWager.
