OVER Trending When Tribe/BoSox Clash

If you’re a big fan of high-scoring games on the diamond then you may want to watch the series opener between the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox Friday. The Tribe have gone OVER in six of their past seven while the BoSox have topped the closing total in eight of their past 10. To top it off, the OVER is 6-2 in the past eight meetings between the two clubs.

Shark Bites
  • The Indians are 11-2 SU in their past 13 games on Friday.
  • Corey Kluber is 0-1 with a 4.50 ERA in three career starts at Fenway Park.
  • The Red Sox are 9-1 SU in their past 10 home games.

Cleveland will send Corey Kluber to the mound with the righty trying to find some consistency this season. When Kluber is on he is dominant – with a 0.53 ERA and a 17-to-2 strikeout-to-walk ratio in wins – but is terrible when off – 6.99 ERA in five losses.

Clay Buchholz will get the start for the Red Sox despite some recent struggles. The righty has a 5.50 ERA while giving up four home runs in his past three starts, but the BoSox have gone 3-0 in those outings thanks to the team averaging 8.3 runs of support.
