Indians Continue to be Hot in Cleveland

After Sonny Gray made his debut with the New York Yankees, left-hander Jaime Garcia is set to do the same against the Cleveland Indians. Sportsbooks opened the Tribe as -130 home favorites with a total of 9.5.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 1-3 SU and ATS in its last four games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Indians’ last 10 games against teams with winning records.
  • The Yankees are 6-2 SU in their last eight games after consecutive losses.

Countering on the bump for the Indians is Trevor Bauer. Bauer (9-8, 5.25 ERA) is coming off an excellent outing against the Los Angeles Angels in which he tossed a season-high eight innings of one-run ball to win his second straight start. The 26-year-old hasn’t fared well against the Bronx Bombers, going 1-4 with a 5.34 ERA in his six career tilts vs them.

Garcia, who’s pitching for his third team in a period of two weeks, has reached the six-inning mark in five straight appearances. The hurler gave up three runs and eight hits while striking out seven over 6.2 innings against Oakland his last time out.

Cleveland is continuing to be a fantastic bet at home. In the Indians’ last eight in Ohio, they’re 8-0 SU.
