Lines and odds are subject to change.

Reds vs. Indians

Indians -1.5 (+140)

The Cleveland Indians are playing some really good baseball right now. They are winners of five-straight, including a four-game sweep of the Kansas City Royals. They now sit alone atop the American League Central. Many people thought that the starting rotation would be this team’s strength, but the bullpen has carried this team so far. A one-two punch of Emmanuel Clase and James Karinchak has virtually been unhittable to this point. As a team, they rank second behind the Toronto Blue Jays in bullpen ERA with a 2.54. With Zach Plesac on the mound, who rebounded nicely in his last start after a rough couple of starts, expect Cleveland to come away with a comfortable victory tonight.

Orioles vs. Redsox

O/9 (EVEN)

The number three ranked scoring offense in baseball will be facing Matt Harvey, who has been a nice feel-good story this season, but he does carry a 4.06 ERA. While the Orioles are not as bad at the plate as their numbers indicate, we will still rely heavily on the Redsox to carry the load here. Not only that, but the over is 12-7 at Fenway Park this year. In their last 10 head-to-head matchups, both teams are averaging just over five runs a game and a 7-3 record for the over. At even value, this is a nice pick here.

Celtics vs. Bulls

Celtics -2.5 (-105)

Both teams enter tonight in a bit of a slump ATS. The Celtics are 2-5 in their last seven and the Bulls are 1-4 in their last five. However, the Celtics are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 against the Bulls. Straight up, the Celtics are just a better team. Even with Jaylen Brown out for this game, the Celtics are deeper and more talented. With this close of a spread, I am comfortable taking the Celtics tonight.

Red Wings vs. Blue Jackets

Blue Jackets -1.5 (+170)

This is the first time in a long while that I have taken my talents to the rink. Both teams come into tonight at the bottom of the league offensively. However, the total has gone over in 10 out of the Blue Jackets last 14 games and they are 25-27-2 against the overall season. The Red Wings are 19-33-2 against the over and have only gone over in one out of their last four. Why does this matter when we are taking the spread? When you have two poor offensive teams, look for the team that is on a bit of a run offensively. While the Red Wings are an impressive 34-20 ATS and a league-best 21-7 ATS at home, they are 13-13 ATS on the road. Take the Blue Jackets for the sole reason of +170 odds against the spread.
