Free Cleveland Indians vs Boston Red Sox MLB Prediction:
This game includes two hot teams right now, but neither pitcher has been on the mound very often this year. I’m taking the Indians in this one for acouple reasons.
First, their bats are RED hot. They handled the Reds in the series very easily and scoring a lot of runs in doing so.
Also, Trevor Bauer had a great season last year.
