MLB Tips – 6th September

A fair Monday but The Wolf is confident he’s found some early Tuesday winners.

Houston Astros at Cleveland Indians
Tip: Over 8.5 runs
The Indians are on a roll at the moment and will look to continue their perfect homestead when they start a four game series with the visiting Astros. The AL central leaders put on three runs in the final inning to beat Miami 6-5 on Monday have now won their first six games of the current 10 game schedule at Progressive Field. Houston are still sitting two games behind Baltimore and Detroit for that second wild card spot and will be up and about after taking down their long star state rival Texas on Monday behind a 7-6 scoreline. Mike Fiers (9-6, 4.31 ERA) will hurl for Houston while Mike Clevinger (2-1, 5.30 ERA) will get the ball for Cleveland. Fires got the advantage over Cleveland back in May, going seven innings and giving up just the one run from three hits. Clevinger is starting in place of struggling Josh Tomlin and will make his first start since mid August. There is nothing but over trends across the board in this one so get around it.

Arizona Diamondbacks at LA Dodgers
Tip: Under 7 runs
This past offseason the Arizona Diamondbacks signed Zack Greinke (12-4, 4.17 ERA) to a rich six year deal worth $206.5 million after successfully prying him away from the Dodgers. He will now return to Dodger Stadium in snakes colours for the first time to face his former team, aiming to shut down the LA lineup and put a dent in their NL West title aspirations. The Diamondbacks are on the last leg of their eight game road trip where they have suddenly exploded at the plate, piling on 41 runs en route to winning four of their last six. That includes scoring 17 in back to back games against the Rockies in their last series. The LA bats have also come alive, scoring 24 runs in their last four games and going on to win three of those. That said, this is a different ballgame with both pitchers in great form at the moment and while Greinke is trending over in his games recently, it’s usually the snakes carrying that run total and not the team opposing him.
