Money Line: -178 Cleveland
I'm playing on CLEVELAND. These same two starters opposed each other less than a week ago, at Cleveland. Laying -240, Carrasco and the Indians won 5-0. While they're still significant favorites, with this game at Chicago, we're able to get the Indians at a far more reasonable price than we could have for last week's game. The venue doesn't change the advantages that the Indians will again have. Carrasco is rounding into form while Banuelos is falling apart. Over his last three starts, Banuelos has an awful 11.37 ERA and an obscene 2.47 WHIP. Over his last two games, Banuelos has served up five home runs in seven innings. Last time out, he walked five Indians in four innings. Needless to say, a lot of walks and a lot of home runs is a bad combination for a pitcher. While the Indians are 12-8 in day games, the Sox are just 7-15. Going back further finds Chicago at 52-87 (-21.9) in day games the past 2+ seasons and Cleveland at 87-51 (+9.3). Indians roll.
