ALDS Game 5 Betting Odds & Aengus Moorehead MLB Predictions: New York Yankees vs Cleveland Indians

New York Yankees vs. Cleveland Indians

Yankees: 2-2 (0-2 V)
Indians: 2-2 (2-0 H)
When: 8:00 PM ET, Wednesday, October 11, 2017
Where: Progressive Field, Cleveland, Ohio
TV: FS1

The New York Yankees have put a chink in the Cleveland Indians’ armor and now will attempt to achieve the unlikely feat to come from a 0-2 hole and stun the Indians and punch their ticket to the ALCS against the Houston Astros as the two clubs resume hostilities. The ultimate showdown is set be broadcasted Wednesday afternoon on TBS at 5:38 p.m. and live from Progressive Field in Cleveland.

The Indians enter the contest as heavy favorites, -190 according to Bovada Sportsbook, but the Yankees do have history on their side as nine of the 15 teams that have leveled a series after being down 0-2 in a best-of-five set have gone on to prevail in the series. A win by the Yankees could mean redemption for Joe Girardi’s miscue in Game 2 and more heartbreak for a Cleveland side that hasn’t won the World Series since 1948.

Maybe it is wishful thinking to imagine Cleveland starter Corey Kluber delivering back-to-back clunkers but the ace has to be rattle about what transpired in Game two when he suffered his worst start of the season. Also a reminder, despite the awful outing, Kluber and the Indians did manage to win the game albeit thanks to Girardi’s many blunders in the game. This contest may be decided in the bullpen where the Yankees have the clear-cut advantage. We shall see.

LH CC Sabathia (14-5, 3.69 ERA – 0-0, 3.38 ERA) will attempt to maintain his fine form and lead the Yankees to the ALCS while RH Corey Kluber (18-4, 2.25 ERA – 0-0, 20.25 ERA) looks to rebound from his worst outing of the season as he gets the call in the decisive game for the Indians.

Sabathia will look to notch his tenth postseason-career win and bring New York into a frenzy when he treads the mound on Wednesday. The 37-year was efficient in Game 2 of the ALDS in which he gave up two runs on just 3 hits and 5 strikeouts in 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision last Friday. Sabathia seemed to have the juices to go further in the game but Joe Girardi decided otherwise and pulled the veteran after just 77 pitches. Sabathia is 4-3 with a 3.65 ERA in 11-career starts against Cleveland.

Kluber held the opposition without a run in three of his five postseason starts last season but he was all out of sorts in his first outing in this ALDS when he allowed an atypical six runs across seven hits and two homeruns in his shortest season stint (2 2/3 innings) in a no-decision in Game 2. The 31-year old was 5-0 with a 0.84 ERA in six starts in September before last Friday’s meltdown. In all, the Alabama native has dominated the Yankees as he is 5-1 with a 1.80 ERA in 7-career starts against the Yankees.

Mybookie Sportsbook has the Indians favorites at 190-moneyline with the total sitting at 7½.

MLB Runline Odds at BetOnline the Indians were favored by -1½ (+110)
