Cleveland Indians v Tampa Bay Rays
Cleveland Indians -1.5 (Asian Handicap)
The Tampa Bay Rays will head to Progressive Field to close this 4-game series against the Cleveland Indians after losing two of the first three. Because of the 3 losses in their last 4 games Tampa Bay have fallen to 44-41, 7.5 games behind leaders Yankees. Right-hander James Shields (8-5, 4.11 ERA) will start, now with a bad streak of 3 consecutive outings when he gave up 4 or more runs. Cleveland, 44-40, 2nd in the AL Central, good form lately, winning 7 of their last 10. For this one they will bring up promicing right-hander Zach McAllister (3-1, 3.93 ERA) who has 2 straight wins, giving up 3 or less ER in his last 3 outings, pitching for the first time in his career against the Rays. Shileds (who has an ERA of 5.95 in his last 3 starts) has a pretty modest record in his career against the Indians, winning 1 and losing 5 with an ERA of 3.83 and that`s what I`m going to count on to bet on a clear win for the Indians.Last but not least Tampa Bay is struggling on road with a 20-22 record, winning just 3 of their last 11. So clear win for the Cleveland Indians after they successfully deal with Moore and Hellickson in the series (to win it by 2 or more runs in the end).
