Indians vs Cubs Preview

Indians RH Trevor Bauer (0-1, 5.00 ERA)

Bauer lasted just 3 2/3 innings while allowing two runs and six hits in a Game 2 loss Wednesday, giving up RBI singles to Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber. The 25-year-old Bauer has never started a game in the majors on three days of rest but he tossed seven scoreless innings in his only career outing at Wrigley Field in 2015. The bullpen will be well-rested behind him and Francona has long-relief options in Danny Salazar or Ryan Merritt if Bauer has another early exit.

2016 World Series Game 5 Prediction

The Cubs are one game away from failure. The Indians are one game away from becoming Championship City. Not today. The Cubs will win this game but at (-225) on the money line there is not much value. I like two other bets on this game and they are both straight bets.

Indians vs Cubs Game 5 Picks:
Cubs run line (-1.5) at (-110)
Over 7 runs at (100)
