The Cleveland Indians look for a win after winning five of their last eight games. The Indians have scored seven runs in their last three games and three or less runs in five of their last six games. The Indians have lost four of their last six games when scoring three or less runs. Jason Kipnis leads Cleveland with 77 hits and 27 RBI while Michael Brantley and Brandon Moss have combined for 66 RBI. The Cleveland Indians have lost four of their last six home games. Corey Kluber takes the hill, and he’s 3-6 with a 3.61 ERA and 105 strikeouts this season. Kluber is 2-0 with a 1.69 ERA and 21 strikeouts in his career against the Mariners.
The Mariners are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 2-6 in Elias' last 8 starts. The Indians are 7-20 in their last 27 during game 1 of a series and 3-9 in Klubers last 12 starts. The Mariners are 2-7 in the last 9 meetings in Cleveland.
The Mariners simply can't put runs on the board, and that's likely not going to change with Kluber on the hill. I'll take the Indians and the runline to give the wager actual value.
