Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
I look for the Indians to start off the series in the Motor City in good fashion.
I do feel that the Indians are slightly better than the Tigers are. I feel they will be able to take care of business in game 1. So far, the Tribe have had some success against Detroit.
This could have the chance to be a good pitching matchup. To me, Plesac is the better arm and I feel he will out pitch Alexander.
I like the Indians on the moneyline.
