The Cleveland Indians are off to a great and somewhat unexpected start to the 2021 MLB season. Despite entering the season with just +750 odds to win the AL Central, the Indians sit in second place with a 21-18 overall record.
This blistering start has the Indians with even better AL Central odds nearly two months into the season. Cleveland's odds now sit at +370, according to the latest MLB odds on FanDuel Sportsbook. Clearly, there's a lot to be excited about for Indians fans and this franchise just got a bit more good news.
Progressive Field is set to return to full capacity starting at the beginning of June. In addition to full capacity, the Indians will begin selling tickets to remaining home games starting on Wednesday, May 26.
The June 2nd date an exciting one for Cleveland fans as this date marks the end of a four-game series against the division-leading Chicago White Sox. Right now, Cleveland trails the White Sox by 3.5 games, but that's plenty of time for this franchise to get in striking place of the division lead. Could we see the Indians taking first-place over from the White Sox with full fans in attendance?
Of course, time will tell. But, the Indians will continue to ride the strong rotation arms of Shane Bieber and Aaron Civale. Both starters have posted ERAs below 3.50 on the year and own 9 wins and 131 strikeouts between the two.
