MLB Cleveland Indians at Houston Astros Prediction and Preview

Cleveland Indians at Houston Astros Game Info

If you are looking for a fun parlay pick to be played over the long haul, picking the winner of each
division is a great one. It’s a wager that seems straightforward enough, as there are usually a few
divisions that look as though they will be dominated by one or two teams. The problem with baseball is
that things seldom play out the way we expect them to, which is why the division leaders that we are
seeing right now are not necessarily who we expected them to be. There is still a lot of time for that to
change, though, as we are still in the very early stages of the season. The Houston Astros are one team
that are exactly where we expected, which is at the top of the AL West, although it has not been as
straightforward a trip to the top as we might have thought. The Cleveland Indians are favorites to win
the Central, and while they are second right now, they are well within reach. These two will hook up on
Thursday night, with the Astros in as a 1 ½ run favorite. The total is set at 7 ½.

Why bet on the Cleveland Indians

It is becoming clear that the Cleveland Indians may not have it all their way this year in the AL Central. It
looks as though the Minnesota Twins are ready to put up a fight, as they currently possess a ½ game
lead over the Indians in the race for the title. The Indians have been getting solid pitching and defense,
but they are simply not getting enough in the way of run production, which is why they are having a
tough time finding consistency at 5-5 in their last 10 games. It is that same .500 record that they are
seeing on the road, where they are 6-6. The good news is that they will have their ace on the mound for
this one, with Treavor Bauer (2-1, 2.20 ERA) set to get the ball.

Why bet on the Houston Astros

The Astros have spent a good part of the early going looking up at the Seattle Mariners, who came
storming out of the gate. Back to back wins and 6 victories in their last 10 has allowed the Astros to
finally get their noses in front of the pack, as they now lead the West by as rather slender half-game
margin. It has been their play at home that has served them very well this season, with the Astros going
an impressive 8-1 SU in their own ball park. This is a positive run that has built up, with Houston going
13-4 SU in their last 17 games. They have had their way with Cleveland at Minute Maid Park, going 4-1
SU against them in their last 5 visits. The Astros are 5-4 ATS as a home favorite. They will send Gerrit
Cole (1-3, 5.22 ERA) to the mound for this one.


Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

The Indians could get this series off to a good start with Bauer on the mound, but can they offer up any
type of meaningful run support? I’m not so sure, which is why I am taking the Houston Astros to win a
close one.
