This is a 1* comp MLB pick on the “under” between the Cleveland Indians and the Detroit Tigers on Friday night (7:08 EST).
Corey Kluber (2-1, 3.06 ERA) gets the call for the visitors; Kluber is coming off his first loss of the year vs. the Twins on Sunday, giving up three runs off five hits with four walks over 5 2/3’s frames of work; he struck out five as well (Kluber was 2-1 with a 4.85 ERA on the road last year). The 27-year old will be opposed by the 28-year old Max Scherzer (4-0, 3.43 ERA) who gave up one run off three hits over eight frames in his team’s eventual 17-2 destruction of the Astros on Sunday; he struck out eight and walked two (Scherzer was 7-3 with a 3.51 ERA last season). Scherzer continues to get the job done and throw deep into games and there’s absolutely no reason to believe he won’t again today. Kluber is one to keep your eyes on and has been consistent thus far. Recent performance plays a part in my handicapping repertoire and in this case I believe the table is set for a lower-scoring pitchers-duel. How about you? What do you think?
