Detroit Tigers (14-20) at Texas Rangers (14-23) 8:05 pm EST
Projected Starters: Tigers: Fiers (2-2, 5.00 ERA) at Rangers: Minor (3-1, 4.36 ERA)
The Detroit Tigers have certainty had their troubles in Texas lately, last night the Tigers fell to the Rangers 7-6 despite Detroit’s best pitcher, Michael Fulmer getting the start.
Texas is now 10-3 in their last 13 games against the Tigers. The Tigers roster is hurting right now due to injuries, led by Miguel Cabrera who is currently out with a hamstring injury.
The Rangers projected starter, Mike Minor is 3-1 with a 4.36 earned run average on the season, with all six starts coming against winning teams, Houston, Seattle, Toronto and Boston. Minor is also 2-1 with a 2.86 ERA at home this season.
Tigers projected starter, Mike Fries is 0-3 with a 8.55 earned run average against Texas in his career.
With the bullpens being poor on both teams, I think the current -160 price tag is a lot of juice to lay on the Rangers, but I think the Rangers can win by more than a run and provide much better value at a lower risk.
My Pick: Texas Rangers (-1.5)
