Online MLB Betting Odds:
The Astros fly into this Thursday night pairing with a 32-18 record that ranks them 1st in the AL West. On top of that, Houston enters tonight’s matchup riding a 3-game winning streak. In fact, that streak stretches back to the last time Houston faced Cleveland in a 3-match series. Of those 3 matches, Houston came out on top twice. Subsequently, tonight’s online MLB betting odds are pegging Houston as a clear-cut favorite. To prove the odds makers right, Houston will be sending Charlie Morton to the mound this evening. Morton is 6-0 on the year with an astounding 1.94 ERA and an impressive 0.93 WHIP.
Players to Watch: George Springer (10 HR, 31 RBI, .294 BA), Carlos Correa (8 HR, 32 RBI, .273 BA), and Alex Bregman (4 HR, 19 RBI, .272 BA).
The Indians enter this AL matchup sporting a 24-23 record that ranks them 1st in the AL Central. Cleveland has undoubtedly benefitted from the fact that no team has risen to claim the AL Central for themselves. This has allowed Cleveland to claim the No. 1 spot in the division despite the fact that the team is barely above a .500 record. Notwithstanding that record, the Indians slide into this Thursday’s pairing riding a 2-game winning streak after beating the Chicago Cubs back to back. Mike Clevinger will get the start this evening and will be looking to improve on his 3-1 record. Clevinger brings a 2.87 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP to the mound tonight.
Players to Watch: Francisco Lindor (12 HR, 27 RBI, .306 BA), Jose Ramirez (14 HR, 34 RBI, .296 BA), and Yonder Alonso (9 HR, 26 RBI, .227 BA).
