The Detroit Tigers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Tigers have scored 11 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last six games. The Tigers have split their last eight games when scoring more than three runs. Miguel Cabrera leads Detroit with 73 hits and 44 RBI while Yoenis Cespedes and Nick Castellanos have combined for 59 RBI. The Detroit Tigers have lost five of their last seven home games. Alfredo Simon takes the hill, and he’s 6-3 with a 2.76 ERA and 51 strikeouts this season. Simon is 3-2 with a 4.59 ERA and 21 strikeouts in his career against the Indians.
The Indians are 6-1 in their last 7 during game 3 of a series and 3-10 in Klubers last 13 starts. The Tigers are 4-1 in their last 5 vs. American League Central and 4-1 in Simons last 5 home starts. The Indians are 3-7 in Klubers last 10 starts vs. Tigers.
We're getting the Tigers at home for plus money, which has to count for something. Also, while Kluber has been great this season, he hasn't exactly had much team success, as Cleveland is horrible with him on the hill. I like plus money here.
