Stephen Nover's Wrong Favorite Big Casher
Cleveland vs. Chi White Sox,

Score: 0 - 2
Money Line: +132 Cleveland
Luis Giolito seemingly has turned the corner. He's pitched well all season. The White Sox are improved and the Indians have looked terrible. But I'm going to back the Indians at this plus price.
Cleveland still is the superior team. The Indians are pitching rookie Zach Plesac, who impressed in his big league debut this past Tuesday at Boston. He held the Red Sox to one run on four hits and one walk in 5 1/3 innings. Now he is stepping down in class. Plesac had a 1.41 ERA in nine minor league starts with a 56-to-7 strikeouts-to-walk ratio before being called up.
Giolito has a 4.41 lifetime ERA against the Indians.
