Clevinger Has Been on an Absolute Roll of Late

Winners of 24 of their last 25 games, the Cleveland Indians’ red-hot streak may be over but their ascension to the top of the American League has rightfully shaken up the landscape of the American League with the playoffs almost here. The Tribe will travel to the Golden State to tangle with the Los Angeles Angels on Tuesday, where sportsbooks opened the Halos as -108 home favorites with a total of 8.5.

Shark Bites
  • The Indians are 6-0 SU in their last six games with Mike Clevinger as the starting pitcher.
  • The Angels are 3-7 SU in their last 10 games when opening a series.
  • The total has gone UNDER in five of the Angels’ last seven games against right-handed starting pitchers.

Mike Clevinger and Tyler Skaggs are expected to get the start for the Indians and Angels, respectively. Clevinger (10-5, 3.21 ERA) is riding a streak of four straight wins where he surrendered a total of one earned run. The 26-year-old wasn’t as sharp against Cleveland on July 25, when he allowed six runs and nine hits in 4.1 frames without factoring in the decision.

Skaggs (2-5, 4.37) earned his first win since April 22 on Wednesday against Houston, allowing three hits over seven scoreless innings while striking out five. The hurler is 0-1 with a 7.50 ERA in two previous starts against the Indians.

The UNDER has been a profitable play when these teams have gotten together of late. In the last six between the Indians and Angels, the UNDER is 6-0.
