MLB Monday

46-35 +17,870
Los Angeles Angels at Cleveland Indians
I think Indians are a dangerous team especially coming off 10 game road trip. Keep in mind the first game return home is a classic bounce back play. Cleveland true to this angle has won all first game back from a road trip 5 out of 5 times this season. The Indians took out Baltimore series 3 out of 4 to end their trip and now welcomes a hot LA Angels with their ace Jered Weaver getting the call. Jered cruised on his last start, which was his second start  since coming off the DL, and looked very much a All Star that he is. Ubaldo Jimenez starting for Cleveland is much improved in June.  He has kept the Indians in all of June games except for Pittsburgh on June 16th and his one other loss against NY Ynakees on June 27th was a 1 run loss making his June record 2-2. As unlikely as it would seem for Weaver to falter going into the All Star break it is more likely for Jimenez to perform keeping this game tight once again. Can't say Cleveland wins straight up, but Angels offensive production has been declining with last game against the Blue Jays netting 2 runs. If Jered is to keep the Indians bat off balance and LA Angels bats struggle against Jimenez the likely choice for this game is UNDER.
FYI, Weaver on the mound the Angels have 10-3 record, three losses comes against Texas, Minnesota and Cleveland.

UNDER 8.5 at -115 for 1 unit(W)

Glad I didn't go with the Tribe. Angels win and buck the trend.
