Betting Impact:

Cleveland's Shane Bieber is 3-0 with a 0.83 ERA in his first three starts. He leads the majors with 35 strikeouts, which is also the third-most ever through a pitcher's first three starts. Runs may be at a premium tonight as Bieber is opposed by Chicago's ace Lucas Giolito. The Indians just faced Giolito on July 29th, and were held scoreless in Giolito's six innings of work. The over/under for the game is set currently at 7.5 runs, according to BettingPros consensus odds.
