The Reds are 15-36 in their last 51 games as a road underdog and 0-4 in their last 4 vs. American League Central. The Indians are 5-1 in their last 6 during game 2 of a series and 1-8 in Klubers last 9 starts. The Reds are 1-10 in the last 11 meetings in Cleveland.
The Reds can't score runs, and that's likely not going to change with Kluber on the mound for Cleveland. Take the run line to give your wager more value.
