Ben Lively (7-3, 3.03 ERA) vs. Michael Wacha (4-6, 4.07 ERA)


Ben Lively of the Cleveland Guardians has had an outstanding start to this season as their starting pitcher with an 8-3 record and 3.03 ERA over 65.1 innings pitched, giving up 56 hits, 20 walks and 56 strikeouts while giving up 10 homers (though generally effective). His 1.16 WHIP suggests excellent control in keeping runners off base and makes Lively an intimidating opponent for any lineup he faces off against.


Michael Wacha of the Kansas City Royals boasts a 4-6 record and 4.07 ERA through 73 innings pitched this season, giving up 68 hits, 21 walks, 7 homer runs, 1.22 WHIP rating.

Cleveland Guardians Betting Trends


The Cleveland Guardians have been performing exceptionally well recently, going undefeated over their past five games and covering the spread in all road contests (22-18), adding an appeal factor for bettors. Furthermore, three out of their last five totals went OVER in three instances, signaling high scoring affairs; of their 35 home games they covered, 18 had totals go OVER; showing they have strong offensive prowess as a team.

Their 20-20 record against the spread on the road is subpar; and all five totals went UNDER in all their recent road matches; yet 20 out of 39 home totals went OVER during that same time span, suggesting there could be increased scoring when competing at home.
