The Indians take the field against the Tigers on Tuesday night hoping to become just the fourth team in MLB history to win 20 consecutive games.
And so, despite the Tigers trotting out a Triple-A lineup, there should be a bit of a playoff atmosphere at The Jake, especially with Corey Kluber taking the mound.
The Indians are so red hot right now, and the Tigers so embarrassingly bad, that the Indians are favored in this game by the largest margin of any team in the MLB season, according to OddsShark.
The money line on the game is -405 (which means you would have to risk $4.05 to win $1). To put that into perspective, the Browns are heavy underdogs this weekend when they travel to Baltimore, but the Ravens are still only -330 on the money line.
In a sport as unpredictable as baseball, it’s almost unheard of for a team to be favored by this much. But that’s just how remarkably dominant the Indians have been lately, especially on Kluber Day.
Here’s a look at the lineups…
