Cleveland Indians vs. Detroit Tigers, August 14, MLB 2021 Match Prediction
August 14, 2021 6:10 pm
Cleveland Indians are second place in the MLB Central with 55 wins, 55 losses, and a team OCT of .500. They have a current W2 streak. They clash with the Tigers, who are third place and one game below then. The Tigers have lost 60 games and are carrying a PCT of .474 into the fray.
It has almost become the norm that whenever the Indians and the Tigers meet, the Indians lose. Two games ago was not an exception to this as they lost 2-1 to the Tigers. Tiger’s Bobby Bradley was great for the team, and the Indian’s Miguel Cabrera was unable to reach his 500th Career home run in the game as he was given the day off
The Indians then bounced back to beat the Cincinnati Reds 9-3 away with Wilson Ramos and Jose Ramirez to cut short the Ted’s 5-game winning streak. Bobby Bradley was unavailable due to a straight left knee and is currently on an injury list for ten days. This game was the make-up for a May 9th game postponed due to a rainout.
However, the Tigers lost the last game to the Indians 7-5 in their most recent meeting on Sunday 8th of August. HR, Bradley Zimmer dropped a sterling performance against the Tigers, breaking the stalemate in the seventh inning with a much-needed homer.
Tiger’s INF, Niko Goodrum, should be available for the game, having undergone necessary rehabilitation after being hit with a sore calf. Indians’ RHP, Shane Bieber, may be available, so also is their RHP, Aaron Civale. Bobby Bradley, sadly may not be available in the fixture.
Match Predictions and Odds
Any one of these teams can just as easily carry the day, but Indians are likely to be victorious. They have the greater incentive in Cabrera and Bradley Zimmer’s current forms. They also have the momentum on their side in this fixture and won’t hesitate to go all out to secure this win.
A lot can be said about the performance of both teams all season, but because they are both at the top of the table, it won’t be ideal to completely rule out the possibility of seeing an upset to the notion of a Detroit Tigers win. This might just be the beginning of a redemption song for them. I guess we’ll never know, and this is the fun in sports betting and where else to win more coins than here on 4rabet.
