The Cleveland Indians are turning a nice little profit on the moneyline but are a catastrophe on the runline.
The Indians’ 34-34 start has yielded a return of 4.66 units on the moneyline, but their 30-38 record on the runline has bettors burning 15.49 units.
Cleveland has played in 17 one-run ball games to date, winning 11 of those contests. That means the Tribe have lost by a single run only six times in 34 losses. In fact, Cleveland is getting beaten by an average of 4.1 runs in its losses.
The Indians’ inability to keep games close has resulted in a 19-14-1 over/under mark when they're on the losing end.
Cleveland continues its current nine-game home stand Monday night when it kicks off a three-game set with the Kansas City Royals. The Minnesota Twins roll into town on Friday.
