Why Bet the Cleveland Indians in MLB ALDS Game 1?The Cleveland Indians were an inning away from winning the World Series a season ago, and Terry Francona has a better team this season. The Indians ran off that incredible run, which led them to finish with the highest run differential in all baseball. Cleveland scored 818 runs but allowed just 564 on the season. The Indians on the offensive side saw Edwin Encarnacion start slow, but he wrapped up his first season with the Indians hitting 38 home runs and driving in 107 runs. Jose Ramirez is an MVP candidate out of the American League, as he led the team with a .318 batting average. As a team, the Indians ranked 6th in runs scored and 5th with a .263 average.
Why Bet the New York Yankees in MLB ALDS Game 1?Luis Severino was terrible for the Yankees in their wildcard win over the Twins. Thankfully, Joe Girardi has seen his bullpen bail him out most of the season. The Yankees starting pitching finished the season with just 75 quality starts, which is just outside the Top 10. The Yankees though may have one of the most well-rounded lineups in baseball. We all hear about Aaron Judge, and his ability to hit the baseball out of the ballpark. But, the Yankees lineup has seen guys all over contribute. The Yankees saw Didi Gregorius lead the team with a .287 batting average, and hit a huge game-tying home run in the win over the Twins on Tuesday. New York hit .262 as a team.
