After leading the American League Central for the better part of the first half of the season, the Cleveland Indians now find themselves four games back of the Detroit Tigers for the division lead with less than two months to go. Consistency will be the key to the Indians getting back out in front in the division race, and they will get a good example of what that means when they go up against the defending AL champion Texas Rangers in a three-game MLB betting series this weekend.

The Rangers have maintained their lead in the AL West almost entirely based on their strong record at home this season, and they will look to build on that this weekend against a Cleveland team that simply hasn’t been good enough on the road. Losers of seven of their past 10 heading into action Thursday night, Texas cannot afford to fall any longer and will turn to Matt Holland to stop the bleeding on Friday. Holland will pitch against Ubaldo Jimenez, who will make his debut for the Indians when they need him the most. Jimenez has struggled of late though, and facing the Rangers’ offense at Arlington may not be the best situation for him to make his debut.

Pitching has really been a sore spot for the tribe in their pursuit of the division, and it doesn’t get any easier with the 5-11 Fausto Carmona set to pitch in Saturday’s game. For players looking for a bet online sportsbook, the numbers show Carmona’s ERA is at 5.31, and although that is down from the 5.98 mark he had in the middle of last month it is still not where Cleveland needs it to be. Too often this season the Cleveland offense has been asked to make up for the lack of depth in the rotation and struggled. Texas will counter with CJ Wilson, and as long as he doesn’t crumble the Rangers’ offense should be able to do enough to get him his 11th win of the season.

The Indians will try and salvage at least one win to avoid the sweep on Sunday when they send Josh Tomlin to the mound to counter Colby Lewis. Tomlin is 11-5 despite a relatively mediocre 4.16 ERA, as he seems to be able to do just enough when he is on to earn decisions while struggling mightily when he is off. Lewis has really struggled of late with four earned runs allowed in each of his last two starts, and while Tomlin hasn’t been incredible, his consistency and the fact that Cleveland will be desperate to avoid the sweep are two factors that five them the edge in the sports betting series finale.
