Indians (Carrasco) vs. Giants (Sanchez) UNDER 7 RUNS (Pick #2 for the day)

Carlos Carrasco has an average 3.87 ERA for the season, but he has been on fire lately, with a 0.42 ERA in his last 3 starts, including taking a no hitter through 5 innings in his last start. He also has been a better pitcher on the road, sporting a 2.88 ERA there. He has allowed 3 runs or less in his last 5 road starts and has allowed 2 runs or less in 4 of them. And this came against tough lineups like the Yankees, Rays and Twins. The Giants have had some troubles scoring runs this season and they will have a difficult job of doing that tonight. Jonathan Sanchez also has a pretty average ERA of 3.71 for the season. At home that number is even better, at 3.23. He has allowed 3 runs or fewer in his last 4 home starts. Even though Sanchez walks a lot of batters, he is better at home and I expect him to do good against this Indians lineup. He has already faced them once before and pitched 7.2 innings and allowed only 1 run, good for a lifetime ERA of 1.17 against them. BET UNDER 7
