The Cleveland Indians are on the South Side for a Wednesday night matchup with the Chicago White Sox. But before you place your bets for this evening’s game, be sure to check out our picks on the moneyline and a player prop we think could cash in.
Moneyline pick: Cleveland +100
The Indians are sending to the mount Zach Plesac, who has been stellar this season. In his last start, Plesac threw seven scoreless frames against the Detroit Tigers. None of the current players in Chicago’s lineup have great success against Plesac, combining for a .178 average and just one RBI in their careers.
White Sox starter Carlos Rodon was supposed to get the start earlier in the week, but was scratched due to stomach issues. That could potentially throw him off his game in a sport as routine oriented as baseball.
These two teams have split the season series so far, each winning one game.
Player Prop: Adam Eaton over 0.5 hits (-200)
Eaton is currently riding a five-game hitting streak and has gotten at least one knock in each game against Cleveland so far this season. Though the sample size is small, he’s also had success against Plesac in his career, going one for three all-time against the hurler.
