MLB Odds - Indians Face Off with Red Sox in Boston

A pair of World Series contenders headline Tuesday’s MLB schedule. The Boston Red Sox will host the Cleveland Indians in the middle of a three-game set.

The Indians will send out Carlos Carrasco (10-4, 3.58 ERA), who took a no-decision in a 10-4 home victory over the Los Angeles Angels in his last start. Carrasco allowed a pair of runs on six hits over 6.1 innings while striking out five. The 30-year-old righthander is 1-1 with an ERA of 4.66 in five appearances (three starts) against the Red Sox in his career and in 2017. Carrasco is 7-2 in 11 road starts with an ERA of 2.87.

The Red Sox will go with Doug Fister (0-5, 7.46 ERA), who took a relief loss in his latest outing as Boston fell 6-5 in Seattle. He gave up two runs on three hits in 2.2 innings, striking out three and walking two. The 33-year-old righty is 5-4 in 16 career starts against Cleveland with an ERA of 3.13. At home this season, Fister is 0-3 in three games (two starts) with an ERA of 8.31.

The Indians are 6-4 in their last 10 against the Red Sox, including a three-game sweep in last year’s ALDS. Six games have gone under, with a push.

MLB Odds: Red Sox Out for Revenge Against Indians

The Cleveland Indians made short work of the Boston Red Sox in last year’s ALDS, sweeping them in three games. The Red Sox would like to exact a little revenge on the Indians when they meet on Tuesday in the second of a three-game series in Boston.

The Red Sox have to go to Doug Fister (0-5, 7.46 ERA) due to injuries, but Fister is 5-4 in 16 career starts against Cleveland, with an ERA of 3.13. The Indians will likely respond with Carlos Carrasco (10-4, 3.58 ERA), who has been excellent on the road this season with a 7-2 mark in 11 starts, along with an ERA of 2.87.
