The Indians are 17-35 in their last 52 during game 1 of a series and 5-1 in Salazars last 6 starts. The Tigers are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 7-1 in Prices last 8 starts. The Indians are 15-41 in the last 56 meetings in Detroit and 16-37 in the last 53 meetings overall.
We're getting Price at a decent price, which is always a must play. The Indians are back to being a mess, and the Tigers are due for a victory, especially on their home field. I'll take Detroit at this reasonable price, although I hate heavy chalk.
