Cleveland at Chicago

Monday 08/24 02:05 PM Eastern

1.5 units on Cleveland +123 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.35)  RESULT: LOSS

Chicago is hot and at home, but Cleveland has its ace going as a dog. The Indians are 6-2 against a team with a winning record. Cleveland ace Corey Kluber (3.52 ERA) is throwing well, the team is 6-4 his last 10 starts, and the Indians are 10-1 in his last 11 interleague starts. Kluber is 3-0 with a 1.52 ERA and has a 30-to-1 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 23+ innings in three interleague starts this season. Chicago is 4-10 in interleague games as a favorite of -110 to -150. Cubs lefty Jon Lester (8-9) had a miserable outing on Wednesday at home against Detroit, coughing up seasons highs in home runs (three) and runs (seven). He has also struggled mightily against the AL this season, going 0-3 with a 7.52 ERA in four starts. The Cubs are 2-10 in interleague home games against a team with a losing record, so grab the dog with its ace. Play Cleveland.
