The Cleveland Indians look to keep rolling after winning five of their last seven games. The Indians have scored 15 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. The Indians have won four of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Jason Kipnis leads Cleveland with 132 hits and 39 RBI while Michael Brantley and Carlos Santana have combined for 115 RBI. The Cleveland Indians have won five of their last six home games. Trevor Bauer takes the hill, and he’s 9-8 with a 4.06 ERA and 136 strikeouts this season. Bauer is 1-2 with a 3.78 ERA and 13 strikeouts in his career against the Yankees.
The Yankees are 16-5 in their last 21 during game 3 of a series and 4-1 in Eovaldis last 5 starts. The Indians are 6-2 in their last 8 games as a favorite and 1-4 in Bauers last 5 starts. The Yankees are 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.
The Yankees are in a scoring slump and haven't been that good on the road as of late. The Indians and the plus money looks good to me.
