The Cleveland Indians look to take care of business this Thursday, as they take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in a matchup they are expected to dominate this year.
The Cleveland Indians should be feeling good about themselves coming into the 2021 campaign, as they have nobody on the injury report and get to send out Shane Bieber as their opening day starter who was insanely good in last year’s shortened season.
Bieber went 8-1 last year and only allowed 1.63 in terms of ERA which was first in the league as well as striking out 122 batters which was also good for first in the entire league, so he has certainly given himself a high bar coming into this year and it will be interesting to see if that was just a fluke or if Bieber really is that good.
One guy to look out for on the Indians this year is Franmil Reyes who hit .274 and had 9 home runs last year, but when you dive into his advanced statistics he has the making of one of the premier hitters in the division, so it will be interesting to see if he really pops this year.
Matthew Boyd will get the start for the Tigers, as he looks to bounce back off of a particularly poor 2020 season with his ERA close to 7 and against a solid Indians batting lineup things will not start off easily for him.
Boyd is the type of guy who can bounce back off of that season though, as we know what kind of a pitcher he can be when he gets his mechanics down correctly and this matchup with the Indians will give us a good idea about where he is at and where he might go this season in terms of his overall numbers.
he Tigers brought in guys like Wilson Ramos and Julio Teheran, but I cannot see these signings making much of an impact on this team as a whole, as they just do not have enough talent and I would expect them to end up towards the bottom of the division yet again.

Free Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
I do not think the Tiger’s home opener is going to go their way in 2021, as I just think this Cleveland Indians are far too strong and I really do believe we will see plenty of instances this year where the Indians are in the -250 or greater odds range versus the Tigers.
I am also a big believe in Bieber, as I see him becoming one of the game’s best pitchers in the next few years and do not believe he is being properly respected with this -200 line. I do expect Bieber to go at least 7 strong innings here to continue to build off of his outstanding 2020 season.
