If some of the bats in Cleveland were going to come alive and build some confidence, this is the team to figure it out against. Baltimore's pitching is Batting Practice Material and Dylan Bundy is tossing tonight. I like this one as a lock, maybe a parlay play with the Mets. Baltimore has lost 6 of Bundy's 8 starts and he has a road ERA of 6.59. It doesn't get any better when the starters exit games for the O's either as they rank 28th in bullpen ERA over the last month. Rodriguez has a 2.92 ERA in his 4 starts and the Indians bullpen ranks 6th in ERA over the last month.
I was surprised that the Indians werent -200 or more here. The Orioles are getting way too much credit, when theyve been terrible recently. Theyre just 6-20 in Bundys last 26 starts, and their lineup has been pretty weak recently. I'll take a shot with Cleveland -1.5 run line today to massage these odds.
There is a reason Dylan Bunday is 1-5 with an ERA above 5. Coming into the league he had all the talent in the world and looked to be a promising talent. unfortunately for him it hasn't worked out that way. While the Indians have had their struggles to score runs I think yesterday was a sign that they are starting to come together. Once Ramirez and Lindor get hot watch out for this team. I like pretty much any team against Bundy but I really like the Indians here.
