Cleveland Indians MLB Betting

Manager Terry Francona has led the Cleveland Indians to five postseason bids since he took over in 2013. That includes four playoff seasons in the past five years, including in 2020. Yet gamblers consider the Indians borderline longshots for the 2021 season. Of course, this is in reaction to Francisco Lindor being traded away by Cleveland this past offseason. The question is whether or not it is an overreaction. Cleveland was far more than just Lindor in 2020. In fact, it was pitching that carried the Tribe and covered for popgun run production. The Chicago White Sox and Minnesota Twins are the Central Division favorites. But is that as much of a reach as fading the Tribe?

2021 Season Preview

In 2020 the Indians finished with 35-25 before getting swept by the New York Yankees in the wild card round. Cleveland had an interesting set of metrics last year. For example, the Indians ranked 25th for run production, 27th for OPS, and 27th for home runs. Cleveland was much better on the mound with rankings of 2nd for staff earned run average, 2nd for WHIP, 1st for quality starts, and 5th for the bullpen.

The best reason not to write off the Indians is manager Terry Francona. He is a two-time World Series champion and two-time American League manager of the year award winner. Only Mike Hargrove had a comparable record of success as manager of the Tribe.

Third baseman Jose Ramirez is expected to carry the lineup in 2021. Ramirez projects for over 100 runs, 30 home runs, and 100 runs batted in for the season ahead. Ramirez is a two-time American League All-Star and three-time AL Silver Slugger Award winner, including last season. Ramirez hit 16 doubles and 17 home runs in just 58 games with a .993 OPS.

Number one starter Shane Bieber was the 2020 Cy Young Award winner. Last year Bieber was 8-1 with a 1.63 earned run average and WHIP of 0.87. He posted 122 strikeouts in just 77.1 innings of work.

Closer James Karinchak was the setup man last year and held eight leads with one save. This will be his first season as the closer.
