Can Every Game In Indians, Tigers Series Go UNDER?

*This game has been postponed due to rain*

Offense has been hard to come by through the first three games of the four-game series between the Cleveland Indians and Detroit Tigers. The two squads have averaged a combined 6.7 runs per game so far this series with the UNDER cashing in each outing.

Shark Bites
  • Michael Fulmer has a 6.98 ERA in 4 career starts against the Indians.
  • The Indians are 1-9 against the runline in their last 10 games.
  • The Tigers are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games as the underdog.

Cleveland will send Danny Salazar, whose season to date can best be described as fine, to the bump for the series finale. Salazar has posted a pedestrian 4.34 ERA through his first five starts but he is averaging a league-high 13.0 strikeouts per nine innings. Keep an eye on how Salazar performs against Miguel Cabrera, as the Tigers masher has gone 10-for-32 with two home runs against the righty but has also tallied 10 K’s.

It will be imperative for the Indians to get after Tigers starter Michael Fulmer early in this outing. Fulmer has surrendered 11 earned runs this season with nine of those coming in the first three innings. However, after that, he has been phenomenal with the right-hander surrendering just six hits in his 16.0 combined innings after the first three stanzas.
