Tampa Bay at Cleveland

2 units on Cleveland +140 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
Cleveland is a team that is mired in last place, but they have played over 70 of their games vs. winning teams, so as bad as they look, the schedule has been murder to this point. Tonight will mark their 28th consecutive game vs. a team with a winning record. What has happened is this team has begun to improve because of the top flight competition night in and night out. The Tribe is 14-8 in their last 22 - all against winning teams. The pitching during this stretch is allowing just 3.5 runs per game. The Rays have struggled after an off-day at just 2-5 in their last seven, and have been 2-6 on the road with a total from 7-8.5. I'll go with Cleveland here.
