Pittsburgh Pirates

They seem to be playing it low, except for their big game against Toronto Blue Jays. Pittsburgh Pirates scored 19 runs off the plate and restricted the Blue Jays to 13. The Pirates showed their potential, but not all spring training games were successful. There is no doubt that this is where they can make mistakes and take risks. However, spring training has always been helpful for players to understand their potential. The Pirates lost against Cleveland in their last game when they were forced to settle with a final score of 5-3. Baseball betting trends have changed this year with a short interesting 60 game season.

Players to watch: A. Frazer 2B (4 R, 1 HR, 2 RBI, .0.212 AVG, .0.257 OBP, .0.621 OPS), C. Morgan 3B (1 R, 1 HR, 6 RBI, 0.281 AVG, 0.303 OBP, 0.834 OPS).

Cleveland Indians

There seems to be a major change with Cleveland as they took out some of the big names in their sprint training. Cleveland defeated the Giants and their Angels along with their successful last game against Pittsburgh Pirates. Cleveland will look forward to securing the top spot in the AL Central this year as they need to deal mainly with the White Sox and the Twins. Last year, the Tigers and Royals were not up to their mark. Yet, this season is bound to be different as every game counts for each team. Cleveland will deliver their favorite Mike Clevinger to the mound as their starting pitcher.

Players to watch: F. Lindor SS (4 R, 3 HR, 10 RBI, .0.394 AVG, .0.394 OBP, .0.758 OPS), C. Santana 1B (5 R, 2 HR, 3 RBI, 0.387 AVG, 0.424 OBP, 0.677 OPS).

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Cleveland Indians Betting Picks

Cleveland looks to be stronger with their batting squad and Clevinger did a decent job last season from the mound. Cleveland has won several games with Clevinger and with a balanced hitting unit, the Indians will win this game.
