On Wednesday, the three-game series between the Cleveland Indians and Los Angeles Angels will come to a close with an 8:07 P.M ET game at Angel Stadium of Anaheim. It will be their final meeting of the season with the Indians winning all five previous meetings of 2019.

Tribe on a Roll

Over the last three games, the Cleveland Indians have gone 3-0 to improve their record to 85-61. While impressive, the Tribe is still a half-game back of the final AL Wild Card spot so every game moving forward is hugely important. Cleveland, it should be noted, is also five games back of the AL Central lead.

Since the second half began, the Tribe has outscored their opponents 289-212, a stat that explains their solid offense and capable pitching staff. As a unit, the batting order has posted a .261 team batting average during this stretch, as well as a .789 OPS. On the other side, the pitching staff has posted a .240 BAA in the second half, and overall, they have the third-best ERA in baseball.

Adam Plutko, a right-handed pitcher, will start the series finale for Cleveland, his 17th start and 18th appearance of the season. Overall, he has a 6-4 record and 4.44 ERA. On the road, he’s had a tough time in 2019, allowing hitters to post a .286 batting average against him.

Halos Have Taken a Nosedive

Not too long ago, the Los Angeles Angels had an outside shot at making the postseason. In fact, on August 20th, they sat just two games below .500 at 63-65. Since then, however, the wheels have completely come off, and entering their season finale against the Indians, the Halos are merely 67-79. In their last 18 games, they’ve won just four games.

The offense for the Angels has been a rough spot, even though they have some hearty names in their lineup. In their last three games, they’ve managed just three runs. Former All-Star Justin Upton has gone 1-for-10 during the three-game nightmare and as a team, they’ve managed just 13 hits in 93 at-bats (.195 BA).

From the pitching side of things, they’ll send Dillon Peters to the hill for the series finale. Peters has struggled recently, however, allowing four earned runs before getting chased after 4.1 innings in his last start. Overall, he has a 4.45 ERA, which isn’t bad, but his .280 BAA could use a lot of work.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

This one is an easy pick: you have to take the Indians. For starters, they have everything on the line while the Angels have seen their postseason chances breeze by them. Cleveland is just a half-game back of the final AL Wild Card spot so you can bet this game is like a playoff game for them. Plus, their starter, Adam Plutko, inspires a lot more confidence than Dillon Peters, who has a .280 BAA this season. Plutko has a 3.94 ERA in his last three outings which doesn’t look good for Los Angeles, who is hitting just .195 in their last three games.

Prediction: Cleveland Indians

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

Even though the Angels aren’t hitting a lick right now, you can be sure the Indians have a field day on Wednesday night. They’ve been raking recently as they hope to sneak into the postseason, scoring 19 runs in their last three games. Francisco Lindor, their best hitter, is locked in right now, as well, hitting five home runs already this month. Opposing hitters are hitting .283 against Dillon Peters at home this year so you can be sure the Indians are licking their chops. Plus, the trends align with the over: in LAA’s last 14 home games, the under has hit just four times.
