Indians are One Win Away from World Series

The Cleveland Indians have completely silenced one of the most potent offenses in the American League and are one win away from making the sixth World Series appearance in franchise history as a result. Game 4 of the AL Championship Series goes tonight in Toronto.

Shark Bites
  • The Blue Jays are 13-4 SU in their last 17 games after consecutive losses.
  • The Indians are 9-2 SU in their last 11 games on the road after winning their two most recent road games.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Indians' last nine games during the afternoon.

Corey Kluber and Aaron Sanchez are the probable starters for the Tribe and Jays, respectively. Kluber (2-0, 0.00 ERA) starts on three days’ rest for the first time in his career due to Trevor Bauer’s early departure in Game 3. The former Cy Young Award winner has not allowed a run and has given up only nine hits over his two postseason outings while registering 13 strikeouts.

The first playoff start for Sanchez (0-0, 9.53) was one to forget, as the 24-year-old surrendered six runs on three hits and four walks over 5 2/3 innings against Texas in the ALDS. Sanchez is 1-0 with a 5.06 ERA in three career games against the Indians, including a no-decision on August 20 that saw him give up five runs and four hits in four innings at Cleveland.

The UNDER continues to be an extremely profitable play when these teams collide. Each of the first three games has gone below the total, and the Indians have cashed UNDER bets in seven of their last nine at Rogers Centre. Toronto is also 5-18 OVER/UNDER in its last 23 tilts.

Prediction-scoring formulas run on this game pick a potential 3.3-2.7 result in favor of the Blue Jays. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming MLB matchups here.
