The Baltimore Orioles travel to Detroit to take on the Tigers tonight. Jake Arietta will start for the birds, while Max Scherzer gets the nod for Detroit. Check MLB odds at Bovada sportsbook.
The Tigers enter having won seven of their last ten. Scherzer is a perfect 9-0 with a 3.19 ERA and 0.87 WHIP while striking out 106 over 90 1/3 innings this season. He is finally reaching the potential the tigers saw in him after they drafted him five years ago. In his last start in Kansas City he went seven innings giving up just three hits and two earned runs while striking out six. In his last two home starts, he has surrendered just seven hits and two earned runs combined while striking out 15. This has clearly been Scherzer’s best season of his career. Detroit is 22-10 at home this season.
Baltimore enters having won six of their last ten, and are 2-15 on the road this season. Jake Arrietta was recalled from triple A to make this start, he has bitched four games this season. He enters 1-1 with a 6.63 ERA in 19 innings so far. In his last start back on April 21st, Arrietta gave up five earned runs while giving up five walks and two hits against the Dodgers. His one win cam against the Rays, however it was not a quality start as he only lasted five innings giving up one run.
I’ll side with the home Tigers in this game, as Scherzer remains hot and Baltimore might not be able to put runs on the board but first read about sportsbook reviews.
