Why Cleveland Indians are a good bet at -120

Shane Beiber has thrown great this season. After coming in for a couple of innings to spell Carlos Carrasco on March 31, he has since started two games, yielding only 2 earned runs off 5 total hit in 13 combined innings pitched.

He threw 6 innings against the Toronto Blue Jays on April 5. He followed that up with a fantastic 7 innings, 3 hits performance versus Detroit on April 11. Cleveland won both games. Beiber could have another great start, which could lead to another Indians win.

Why Seattle Mariners are a good bet at +100

The Mariners have gone 3-0 in Mike Leake’s 3 starts this season. His ERA of 4.15 isn’t bad while although his 1.44 WHIP is somewhat high, that’s countered by the fact that his teammates really step it up when he’s on the mound.

Leake allows Cleveland to bat .246 against him. However, the Tribe has a less than .200 batting average this season. If he provides a decent performance, the Mariners could beat Cleveland on Tuesday night.

Cleveland Indians vs Seattle Mariners Final MLB Betting Analysis

Cleveland might not have hit well overall this season, but they sure looked good at the plate against Seattle on Monday night. They scored 2 in the eighth and 1 in the ninth to beat the Mariners. That’s a really bad sign for Seattle because unless Mike Leake locks down the Tribe early and Seattle builds a lead, Cleveland could dominate the Mariners bullpen.

It helps the Indians’ cause that they send one of their top pitchers to the mound. Beiber’s been on fire lately. He won’t disappoint while Cleveland’s bats should continue to scorch Seattle. Cleveland wins.
