Tanner Bibee has been consistent and reliable, while the Tigers' offense has shown vulnerability against strong pitching. Additionally, the Guardians have been performing well in Bibee's starts and are looking to bounce back from a recent loss. Given these factors, the pick is for the Cleveland Guardians to cover the -1.5 spread.
