Guardians vs. Tigers Prediction

Give me Cleveland here. I know things got a little bit dicey late for the Guardians, but the Guardians still held on and you have two pitchers that have had opposite levels of success this season. The Guardians have won a ton of games where Bibee has been the starter, while Olson’s had a hard time getting run support and the Tigers have lost a lot of Olson’s starts despite him pitching really well more often than not this season. In the end, I trust the Guardians’ lineup and bullpen way more than Detroit’s, so give me Cleveland here.
