The Wolf managed to go 8-6 on a tough Thursday but he says the heavens will open up on Friday and along with the runs there will be an avalanche of winners!

NY Yankees at Cleveland Indians (9:10am) (Best)

Tip: Indians WIN ($1.65)

The Indians had a bit of a stumble in the final game of their Detroit series with the Tigers finally figuring out how to beat them after 12 attempts this season. Prior to this loss, the Indians has a 13 game home win streak rolling and Cleveland will be mighty keen to get back to their winning ways at home when the Yankees visit Friday. New York are 18-25 away from home and already struggling on their current road trip, sitting 2-4 with four games yet to come. Trevor Bauer (7-2, 3.02 ERA) steps out for the home side and threw five shutout innings in his last effort – a relief outing – against the Blue Jays in that marathon 19 innings matchup. He’s 4-0 in the last eight outings but has had a little bit of concern with his control in those efforts. The Yankees will counter with Ivan Nova (5-5, 5.06 ERA) who pitched well against SD last start. The concern for Nova here will be keeping the ball in the park and the Indians will have no trouble putting it over the fence if the opportunity arises. Indians to bounce back and go over the team total of 4.5 runs.

Detroit Tigers at Toronto Blue Jays (9:07am)

Tip: Tigers WIN ($1.90)

As mentioned in the best bet preview, the Tigers finally managed to get past the Indians who are one of the hottest teams in baseball and will look to carry that momentum in to the Rogers Centre to face the hard hitting Blue Jays. Toronto are coming in red hot after smashing the defending champion Royals in knockout fashion. If you put the Indians series aside, the Tigers are rolling and winners of 10 straight overall at the moment. Life in Toronto won’t be easy though. Toronto are getting up close and personal with the AL Central in their schedule before the ASG, fending off the Indians and the Royals in their previous series match-ups. The pitching is coming to the party to support their potent offence with the pitching staff limiting opposing sides to an average of two runs in their last four turns. The key to Detroit getting the edge here is Justin Verlander (8-6, 4.11 ERA) will be on the mound while Toronto send Drew Hutchison (1-0, 5.40 ERA) in to start. Verlander should be able to keep Toronto quiet enough for the Detroit bats to get to Hutchison and set the bullpen up for success.
