Indians Still In Thick of Central Race as Series with White Sox Opens

Indians holding tough in crazy AL Central race

The Indians winning the AL Central title in 2014 is still not out of the realm of possibilities. Ever since Kansas City overtook the top spot from Detroit, anything is possible these days. Cleveland has played well of late to move to within 5.5 games of first place. They enter tonight's game with a two-game winning streak and are 6-4 in their last 10 games played. Cleveland will hand the ball to lefty T.J. House on Tuesday.

White Sox mired in another ugly season towards bottom of Central

They are not in the cellar of the AL Central just yet, but the White Sox could end up there before the season comes to an end. The White Sox have lost six consecutive games, are 2-8 in their last 10 played and are falling closer to the bottom of the division. Jose Quintana will take the mound for the White Sox tonight. He is have a pretty good season despite his 6-10 record. He has a respectable 3.25 ERA on the year.

The White Sox host the Indians for a three-game series between these two AL Central rivals beginning on Tuesday night. We will place our bet at Sportsbook.ag, where the Indians are underdogs on the road. Even though they are not favored to win, we will bet 10 percent of our bankroll on Cleveland and the OVER eight total runs scored at -105 as they take game one from Chicago.
