Pick
Over 8.5 (100) @ williamhill

The Cleveland Indians come into this game on a seven-game losing streak after dropping last night's game. The Indians were able to tie it up in the top of the ninth but turned around and lost it with a hit batter to load the bases and another hit batter to walk in the winning run. They have scored 14 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. Aaron Civale will try to right the Indians ship in today's start. He is 3-5 with a 3.88 ERA this season.

The Chicago Cubs took a lead into the ninth, only to give it up and winning it in the bottom of the ninth. The Cubs have scored 22 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in five of their last eight games. Jon Lester will make the start for the Cubs. He is 2-2 with a 5.05 ERA this season. In his career against the Indians, he is 8-3 with a 2.90 ERA.

Aaron Civale has allowed six runs and 12 hits in his last 12 innings while Jon Lester has allowed 10 runs and 17 hits in his last 14.2 innings. Lester has struggled in his last two starts. Both pitchers have been hittable and I look for that trend to continue today.

Play on the OVER. This is a 6* play.

FAQs

What does ‘Star Rating’ mean?
Star Rating is the number of units the handicapper is risking on the bet. Therefore, if the Star Rating is 7.0, it is a 7-unit pick. On plus odds picks, the handicapper is risking their Star Rating unit amount. On negative odds picks, the handicapper is betting enough to win their Star Rating unit amount.
