MLB Free Pick: Tigers vs. Indians Betting Odds

American League Central foes wrap up a crucial three game set tonight as we feature betting odds for the Cleveland Indians vs. the Detroit Tigers. For one of these teams to make the MLB 2011 post-season, they will need to win their division as a “Wild Card” berth is out of reach at this point. The fact that Detroit is on an 0-13 run in Cleveland, dating back to the 2010 MLB season, is offset by the “Vaporizer” being on the mound for the Tigers tonight!

Game Day Preview: Detroit Tigers @ Cleveland Indians

Cleveland won the first two games of this series by a combined 13-5 final score – including a huge 10-3 beat down last night.

Detroit will try to increase their lead in the AL Central as they send their ace RHP Justin Verlander (16-5, 2.30 ERA) to the hill. The “Vaporizer” along with the New York Yankees CC Sabathia are the Majors’ only 16-game winners this season

RHP Fausto Carmona (5-11 5.19 ERA) gets the call for Cleveland. Despite his lofty 5.19 ERA, Carmona has been fairly solid for the Tribe since returning from the disabled list on July 18, 2011 as he has gone 1-1 in his last four starts, posting a 2.81 ERA.
