5* MLB *Friday Night Feast* on Angels -136
The Angels are a much better team than they've shown, and they're certainly the better team tonight with ace Jered Weaver on the hill.
The Tribe is hitting just .186 through 8 home games, which means it likely won't get much of anything off Weaver, who is 3-0 with an ERA of 2.43 on the season.
He is 5-2 (9-3 on the ML) with an ERA of 3.41 in 12 career starts versus Cleveland, including 4-0 with a 2.01 ERA in six starts at Progressive Field.
Weaver has been nothing short of awesome early in seasons, going 12-0 with a 1.84 ERA in 15 starts before May 1 since the start of the 2010.
The Angels are 42-16 in Weaver's last 58 starts as a favorite of -110 to -150.
Justin Masterson hasn't been nearly as sharp for the Indians. He's 0-2 with an ERA of 6.65 through 4 starts, and his ERA is up to 9.88 over his last 3 outings.
Lastly, the Indians are just 6-21 in their last 27 games as a home underdog.
In all, we have a 21-0 pitching angle in favor of Weaver and the Halos here.
