The Detroit Tigers and the Oakland athletics will meet on Tuesday for game one of a big series from Detroit. MLB odds can be found at Bovada sportsbook.
The Tigers were everyone’s preseason favorite to win the division, and things are not working out as planned. They are just 4-6 in their last 10 games as they push for the playoffs. Tonight on the mound they will look to Max Scherzer who has won his last six decisions. In 176 innings of work Scherzer has allowed 168 hits good enough for 3.77 ERA.
The Athletics on the other hand are the surprise of Major League Baseball and lead the AL wild-card race. They are 8-2 in their last 10 games and have a very respectable 40 – 31 home record this season. For game one of this series they will start AJ Griffin who has been great as of late. In 65 innings of work Griffin is pitching to a microscopic 1.94 ERA.
Detroit is 5-0 in their last five games against a team with a winning record, 26-8 in their last 34 home games, and 7-1 in Scherzer’s last eight starts. Oakland is 6-1 in their last seven games as a road underdog, 5-2 in their last seven games against a team with a winning record, and 8-1 in Griffin’s last nine starts.
Right now Oakland is playing better than the Tigers and has a better pitcher on the mound tonight. For this reason take them as moneyline underdogs but first read a sports book review.
