Cappers Picks QKeymaster
Wednesday’s hot and cold probable starters features a large total of 10 pitchers who have an ERA under 3.00 over their last 3 starts combined. We look for one of those starters to continue his hot streak and get a win in Wednesday’s free http://www.mlbsportspicks.com sports pick below.
Indians (Justin Masterson -125) 1.25* FREE PLAY
The Indians look to Justin Masterson to continue his great pitching as he’s posted a 0.86 WHIP and 2.05 ERA over his last three starts, but he has also had success against the Reds. Over the last three years he posts a 2.86 ERA over three starts vs. the Reds while his competition for Wednesday has a 9.30 ERA in 4 starts vs. the Indians in Bronson Arroyo. Masterson has also been dominant at home this year posting a 4-1 record and a 2.47 ERA which is nothing new when you look at his split statistics over his career. I love how Masterson pitched a complete game shutout at home against the Reds last year so his confidence should be sky high and the Indians team has been great at home all year long and have won 7 straight in Cleveland over the in state rivals. The Reds meanwhile have gone just 16-35 in their last 51 inter league games on the road vs. a winning team.
The Reds will still travel and play the game anyway but I think Bronson Arroyo on the mound will mean a victory for the Indians. Indians hitters have hit him hard of late and their bats continue to stay hot. Collectively they have 7 HR and a .860 OPS vs. Arroyo over 96 AB. Cleveland is 10th in OPS vs. RHP while the Reds are 15th. Arroyo also posts a 4.74 ERA during night games while Cleveland’s offense has played great during night games ranking 6th in OPS. Here are a look at the other probable hot starters
