Cleveland is running the AL East gauntlet, just wrapping up dropping 2 of 3 at home to Boston before heading out to Yankee Stadium for a 4-game set starting Thursday. The Indians are likely going to be in a see-saw battle with Minnesota for the AL Central crown here on out and they come into New York with a 0.5 game deficit to the Twins.
The Tribe dropped a devastating 1-5 contest to the Red Sox on Wednesday in a game that would have gave them the series win. Cleveland was a -200 favorite with Shane Bieber on the hill, but managed just 4 hits. The Indians have still scored 6+ runs in 5 of the last 7 games.
Expect some high totals over the weekend when Cleveland’s surging offense meets up with New York’s #1 ranked unit in terms of runs/game (5.98). Adam Plutko will try to slow the Yankees bats as he gets the start in the series opener.
Plutko has allowed at least 3 ER in 4 of his last 6 starts. The right-hander also has a 5.47 ERA in four road starts in ’19 – not a good line heading into Yankee Stadium.
New York Yankees
The Yankees are 8-2 over their last 10 but it has to be taken into account that 6 of those victories came vs. Baltimore. New York is running away with the East with a 10 game lead over the Rays so you’d think they’d be vulnerable at times.
New York may be prone to give up one here and there down the stretch but probably not at home where the team is 47-18 on the season. New York just plated 33 runs in the 4-game series with Baltimore at Yankee Stadium and there’s no reason to think the offense slows even with Cleveland’s #3 team ERA coming to town.
It’s Chad Green on the bump for the Yankees on Thursday. The right’hander will likely serve in the ‘opener’ role where he has posted just a 1.80 ERA across 15 IP.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Indians are 19-7 last 26 road games
- Indians are 38-16 lasts 54 overall

Free Cleveland Indians vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction:
The Yankees have the weird opener thing going Thursday but it’s hard to bet against New York at home as of late. Cleveland has put on a surge lately, but it’s telling that they just dropped 2 of 3 at home vs. the Red Sox.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Yankees RL -1.5
The Yankees offense is too much right now for Plutko’s pitching issues – especially in the Bronx.
MLB Free Score Prediction: Yankees 8 – Indians 4
