The Tampa Bay Rays and the Cleveland Indians will both be trying to pick up a win on Monday when they battle at Progressive Field.

The Rays will give the ball to starter Chris Archer in this one. Right hander Archer is 3-1 this season with a 3.04 ERA.

Archer’s opponent in this one will be Carlos Carrasco. The Indians right hander has a 1.86 ERA to go along with a 4-2 record this season.

Archer posted a quality start in each of his last three outings and is coming off the best of the bunch after scattering five hits across eight scoreless innings while striking out 11 without a walk in a win over Kansas City on Wednesday. The North Carolina native posted 22 strikeouts and one walk in his last two starts combined while lowering his WHIP to 1.13. Archer is still looking for his first career win against Cleveland and enters Monday 0-5 with a 5.14 ERA in five starts.

Carrasco is looking for his third straight win and seventh consecutive quality start after striking out seven without walking a batter in seven scoreless innings at Toronto on Tuesday. The Venezuela native notched 27 strikeouts and two walks over his last four turns. Carrasco allowed one run and struck out eight in eight innings to earn a win in his lone start against Tampa Bay last season and limited Rays slugger Evan Longoria to 2-for-19 in his career.

Bovada Sportsbook currently has the Indians listed as 146-moneyline favorites versus the Rays, while the game’s total is sitting at 7½.

The Tampa Bay Rays and the Cleveland Indians both found their offense on Sunday and are hoping to carry the momentum into winning streaks. The Indians, who snapped a three-game slide with an 8-3 triumph over the Minnesota Twins, host the Rays in the opener of a three-game series on Monday.

Cleveland totaled one run in dropping the first two games of the series against Minnesota but moved Jason Kipnis into the leadoff spot in the order for the first time this season on Sunday and was rewarded with two home runs among four hits from the second baseman. “We know what kind of offense we’re capable of having,” Kipnis told reporters. “It’s about going out and executing and guys hitting with runners in scoring position and putting pressure on the defense. That’s stuff we haven’t been doing lately. We know we can put up crooked numbers with the best of them when things are going well.” The Rays were having some trouble putting up crooked numbers over the weekend until putting seven on the board in the ninth inning and pulling away for an 11-2 win over the Red Sox on Sunday. Tampa Bay could have some trouble matching that explosion on Monday against surging Indians starter Carlos Carrasco, who goes up against Rays righty Chris Archer.

Cleveland won its last outing, a 8-3 result against the Twins on May 14. Bettors who backed the Indians at -163 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (11) sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Tampa Bay was a 11-2 winner in its last match on the road against the Red Sox. They won as +157 underdogs, while the total score of 13 made winners of OVER bettors.
