Public Bettors Pounding Indians, Red Sox Once Again

- Public bettors went 3-0 yesterday and are on the same three teams today.
- The past two AL Cy Young winners are getting loads of support, while bettors continue to hammer the Brewers against the lowly Padres.
Take out the brooms because the public swept the board yesterday. Well, at least the three games Danny Donahue targeted in his Wednesday public bets article, that is. Some familiar faces have reappeared Thursday as the public wants to let their luck ride.

Cleveland Indians (-210) vs. Minnesota Twins
1:10 p.m. ET
Corey Kluber takes the hill for the Indians, who were saved by Francisco Lindor’s walk-off bomb last night in what ended up being the most lopsided game of the evening.
Why the public loves Cleveland: If you didn’t read the previous sentence, I said Corey Kluber takes the hill for the Indians. The Klubot. Even though the Twins are throwing Jose Berrios, the Indians are heating up as of late. They have a couple MVP candidates in Lindor and Jose Ramirez and are throwing the reigning Cy Young winner at a less-than-insane price.
Milwaukee Brewers (-176) vs. San Diego Padres
2:10 p.m. ET
After blowing an early lead to the Padres on Tuesday, the Brewers got ahead and stayed ahead last night, cashing for the 78% of bettors who took them. Today, they lead the way with a whopping 85% of tickets.
Why the public loves Milwaukee: The Brewers have a stacked lineup and are pushing for that division title. Meanwhile, the Fathers are 26 games below .500. Junior Guerra’s 3.42 ERA along with the potent offense has made this play easy for most bettors.
Boston Red Sox (-157) at Toronto Blue Jays
7:07 p.m. ET
The Sox are throwing Rick Porcello in hopes of winning their 7th straight game tonight. Meanwhile, the Blue Jays counter with Ryan Borucki, a young and relatively unknown southpaw who has quietly put up a 2.30 ERA in 43 innings this year.
Why the public loves Boston: The Red Sox can’t fricken lose, that’s why. Regardless of the line movement, betting percentages, pitchers, etc., the Red Sox end up winning. They can get out to an early deficit, be down a few runs to the Yankees in the 9th inning on Sunday Night Baseball, blow a save in the 9th and put up five runs in the 10th. Doesn’t matter, Sox win.
