Jakob Junis has been a fairly reliable arm for the Royals in the last couple of years since joining the rotation full-time, but he’s been recovering from injury and Cleveland’s not a team you want to play at less than 100% especially when you consider how the Tribe feast on the rest of the division. Junis has also had issues in his career against Cleveland, posting a 6.23 ERA in his career as well as a 6.82 ERA in six starts against Cleveland last season, allowing 26 runs, 25 earned in just 33 innings of work. Triston McKenzie goes for Cleveland here and while he’s still young and getting his major league legs underneath him, this guy has shown that he’s got the stuff to get the job done and I think the Indians pick up their young pitcher and guide him to a win here so give me Cleveland -1.5 as my premium pick for this game.
