Chicago Cubs vs Cleveland Indians MLB Interleague Betting

Cubs starter Jason Hammel continues to cruise

Despite being listed third on the Chicago depth chart, RHP Jason Hammel (5-2 ERA 2.81) is enjoying the best season of his ten-year career. Hammel owns the seventh best WHIP mark (0.96) in the Majors and he has given up just 25 earned runs over 80.0 innings. Free passes have been few and far between in Hammel’s twelve starts as he has issued one walk per game to go along with 80 strikeouts. 

Indians Danny Salazar looks to rebound from hard luck loss in Detorit

Listed fourth on the Cleveland depth chart, RHP Danny Salazar (6-2 ERA 3.54) heads to the hill for the Indians tonight. Despite allowing three runs, on seven hits over seven innings, Salazar was tagged with a 4-0 loss versus the Tigers in Detroit during his last start. Cleveland is 8-3 when Salazar pitches and Indians hitters have given him a ton of run support – winning by a 55-24 combined final count. During the three losses, Cleveland has been outscored by a 13-6 margin.

Cleveland Indians vs Chicago Cubs MLB Call: Following a blowout win by both teams, we see this contest being a close one tonight. Although the pitching matchup is fairly even, we do like Hammel slightly more than Salazar here. Taking what the bookmakers are giving us, we’ll back Chicago with a 500 unit wager on the +1.5 (-165) run line price posted on the Sportsbook.ag MLB betting board.

The Oscars: Nomadland The Pick Of The Flicks

Making Oscars 2021 picks isn't like wagering on a sporting event. While certainly there is the so-called Oscar buzz that's generated around certain films, the decision on which movie, director or actor gains the Academy Award is solely based on a secret ballot held by the members of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. There are no past performances to assess, so going with an underdog isn't necessarily a bad strategy.
