April 11 MLB Picks
Chicago White Sox at Cleveland Indians
(White Sox: Shields 1-0, 1.69) (Indians: Carrasco 1-0, 3.18) 4:10 pm EST
Pick: Chicago White Sox Moneyline +215
James Shields had a strong first start of the season allowing one earned run over 5 1/3 innings in a 11-2 victory over Detroit. 2016 was a nightmare for Shields going 6-19 with a 5.85 earned run average.
Cleveland is scheduled to send Carlos Carrasco to the mound who is the only Indians starting pitcher who has won a game so far. In his first start Carrasco allowed two earned runs and struck out seven in a 4-3 win over Texas. Carrasco has struggled against the White Sox in his career with a 3-9 record and 5.63 ERA in 16 starts.
I don’t like the value here for Cleveland at -215. I’m taking the White Sox +215 Moneyline.
