Keep in mind that you can get the ‘under’ 8 in this matchup between Kyle Lobstein of the Detroit Tigers and Carlos Carrasco of the Cleveland Indians at plus odds at quite a few places, which we feel is nice value here. Carrasco has divided his time as a starter and a reliever, but he has been pitching out of his mind in four starts since re-entering the Cleveland rotation on August 10th, allowing a grand total of two runs with 24 strikeouts vs. three walks in 24.2 innings! The Tigers are still trying to fill the rotation spot of the disabled Anibal Sanchez, and Lobstein earned this second opportunity after allowing only two runs (one earned) on just four hits in six innings in his Major League debut, apparently feeling no butterflies facing the New York Yankees. The ‘under’ is 20-8 in the Indians’ last 28 games as favorites.
Pick: ‘under’ 8
