Cleveland Indians vs New York Yankees Preview

Cleveland Indians vs New York Yankees Pick 8-05-16 Prediction, Odds &, Preview

The Cleveland Indians used the long ball to avoid a sweep and are swinging the power bats at the right time as they begin a three-game series in Yankee Stadium. This is a great place for the Indians to be as Yankee Stadium has the highest home run rate of any American League park. The Indians and Yankees pulled off one of the bigger deals before Monday’s trade deadline, as former New York closer Andrew Miller was shipped to Cleveland for a host of prospects. At Yankee stadium he is 8-1 with a 1.49 ERA in his career.

About Cleveland Indians

Josh Tomlin (11-3, 3.43 ERA) can keep the team on the winning track versus a New York squad that he has not faced since last season. In that last meeting, he allowed just one run and two hits to the Yanks in seven innings on the road, walking two and striking out six. Tomlin allowed two runs in seven innings to defeat Oakland on Saturday but gave up his 25th home run, the fourth-highest total in the AL entering Thursday. This year, Tomlin is an impressive 6-1 away from home in 10 starts with a 2.75 ERA. Opposing batters are hitting .238 against him in that situation.

Indians vs Yankees Pick

If these uniforms were switched the Yankees would be (-150) on the money line. I always love fading fan favorites like the Yankees or Cubs when they hit hard times. Sorry Yankee fans but it is time to wait for next year. I grew up a Athletics and Raiders fan. It took me awhile to be able to bet against them but I will do it now because I bet for the money not for entertainment……cashing a ticket is my idea of entertainment. I am making two bets on this game. I am placing 90% of my money on Cleveland money line and I am betting 10% on the Indians on the reverse run line (-1.5).

Cleveland vs New York Prediction:
Indians 6 – Yankees 3
