3 units on Cleveland -155 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Indians are on a late-season mission. After sweeping the Twins, they are looking to do the same to the Tigers. They start rookie Scott Lewis who in two games, has struck out eight batters and not allowed a run in fourteen innings. Dontrelle Willis gets the call for Detroit and this guy is simply done. Since being recalled from the minors, he's pitched 16.3 innings, allowing 16 earned runs. The Indians have been able to put up runs all season long at home, where they are 44-36. Detroit hasn't performed this season as an underdog going just 16-35 as a dog of +100 to +150. They are also 11-20 after 5+ straight road games. I like the Indians to get sweep number two.
