INDIANS VS TWINS *BEST BET* MLB BET ANALYSIS
The Minnesota Twins will play the rubber match of their road series at Progressive Field against the Cleveland Indians. The angle we are taking on this game is for the Indians to be leading the game after 5 innings. This bet has cashed in 7 of the Indians last 8 home games. The Twins, on the other hand, have seen themselves losing through 5 innings in 7 of their last 9 away games. The Indians at home and the Twins on the road are completely different ball clubs. The Indians are an impressive 40-25 in front of their home crowd while the Twins are a dreadful 23-41 when away from Minnesota.
The pitching matchup today sees Mike Clevinger start for the Indians and Jake Odorizzi taking the mound for Minnesota. Clevinger has been great this season putting together a 9-7 record with a 3.30 ERA. He has also pitched very well over his last 3 home starts. He has only given up 4 runs in 19 innings over that span. Odorizzi is having a down season compared to his other seasons. Mainly because he has been plagued by inconsistency. I would definitely give the edge to Clevinger on the mound.
With how solid the Indians and Clevinger are at home I expect this bet to cash for the Indians for the 8th time in 9 games. Back Clevinger to have a strong start and for the Indians to be leading through 5 innings.
