Money Line: 144.00 Cleveland (Away)
I like the Tribe to find a way to get the job done at the end of the night here. Cleveland is now in third place in the AL Central, but it still has a shot at the playoffs. Chicago sits atop the NL Central, so the pressure is off the Cubs right now. I think this'll be the difference maker in the opener of this interleague series. Yu Darvish is 7-2 with a 1.77 ERA this year for the Cubs and it's difficult to say anything negative about his bounce back season, but regression at some point does seem imminent. Also note that he's 1-3 with a 4.12 ERA in six career appearances vs. the Tribe. Carlos Carrasco didn't fare well in his only start vs. the Cubs, but note that Cleveland is 7-2 in its last nine interleague road games as an underdog in the +135 to +155 range. This one has "upset" written all over it!
T.M. Prediction: 6-3 Indians.
