3 units on Texas +1.5 runs -148 (runline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The line on C.C. Sabathia this season is improving, but overall not very good. Over the last three seasons he has been an average pitcher when pitching away from Cleveland, where he has just a .500 overall mark. This year the Indians are just 4-8 in his 12 starts, and 1-3 on the road. The Rangers have found the win column in four of Kevin Milwood's last five starts. The Rangers have gone 11-6 in their last 17 at home, and two of the six by a single run. That means they have been 13-4 against the +1.5 runline in their last 19. We will back them in this one at home.
