Earliest Cash - Rickenbach MLB Game #965 Tuesday 10* Top Play Texas Rangers Money Line (+) @ Cleveland Indians @ 6:10 ET - There is a reason this money line opened up in the -200 range on the Indians but has dropped. There is some sharp money coming in on the Rangers and an upset is in the offing here. The Indians are sending Mike Clevinger to the mound for this one. The Cleveland right-hander has a 7.20 ERA in his last two home starts as he has allowed 4 earned runs in each outing. He has been hit at a .313 clip at home this season. Also, lefties have hit him better than righties this season. This holds some significance here because the Rangers roster of position players includes 6 left-handed sticks and a switch-hitter. Clevinger was hit 77 points higher by lefties than righties last season. The Rangers Doug Fister had an early season trip to the DL but he shook off the rust in his first start back last week. Also, his overall numbers last season don't tell the full story. He allowed 3 earned runs or less in 11 of his 15 starts. He got hit at just a .245 clip after the All-Star break. The 6'8 Fister is an intimidating presence on the mound and he still has "good stuff" and also has plenty of confidence pitching at Cleveland. His last start against the Indians was here at Progressive Field and he held the Tribe to just a single earned run in 9 innings and that was on just 1 hit the entire game as Cleveland managed only a solo bomb as their lone hit in that match-up. Look for Fister to pitch another gem here and the Rangers get the surprising upset on the road. 10* TEXAS
