Free Betting Pick: Cleveland Indians -165
In this game the Reds are outclassed when it comes to pitching. The pitching by Bieber has been able to shut down some of the best offenses and for the Reds they are good offensively, but it does take time for them to get going. The Indians offense is far from good on the year, but with Bieber on the mound pitching against the likes of Mahle it will be hard to bet against the Indians. Final Score, Cleveland Indians win 3-1.
