Odds Table

Betting Trends

Houston is 5-1 in its last 6 games on the road

The UNDER has cashed in 15 of the last 21 Astros games

Cleveland is 1-4 in Clevinger’s last 5 starts

The OVER has cashed in 14 of the last 16 home games for the Indians

Cleveland has not fared well with Clevinger on the mound of late losing each of his last 4 starts against a team with a winning record but at least Clevinger has shown signs of improvement in recent starts. Astros are better team but think Indians as big underdog are worth taking at a shot at this price. Final Score Prediction, Cleveland Indians win 4-3.
