Cleveland is 21-7 in their last 28 game three’s of a series and 21-8 in their last 29 Wednesday games. The under is 7-1 in Cleveland’s last 8 games. New York is 7-2 in their last 9 game three’s of a series and 1-4 in their last 5 games. The under is 5-1 in New York’s last 6 Wednesday games.

New York comes into this game after winning Game 2 of this series, but they have really struggled to hit the ball recently. Cleveland has hit the ball better than New York has over the last week and they will be facing Clarke Schmidt, who has allowed nine earned runs over his last 14.1 innings pitched. Cleveland is starting Shane Bieber, who has allowed three earned runs or fewer in five straight starts. I like Cleveland on the road in this game.
