The Angels have lost three in a row after getting swept by Pittsburgh this past weekend. They have won five of their last ten and are overall 13-20 on the road. They hope Wilson and his 6-5 record can get the job done for them tonight. He has won his last two starts against New York and Seattle, throwing seven innings in each surrendering a combined 14 hits and seven earned runs while walking just five. In his last 10 starts he has a 3.31 ERA over 65 1/3 innings and 58 strikeouts. Los Angeles hope Josh Hamilton can get going as he only played one game in the series against Pittsburgh as he is still hitting below .220.
Detroit is four games up for first place in the AL Central and have won six of their last ten games. They are on a two game winning streak and are 26-13 at home this year. They send Rick Porcello to the mound who has a 4-4 record and 4.74 ERA with a 1.17 WHIP. At home this year he has a 4.46 ERA in 42 1/3 innings giving up 42 hits and 22 earned runs.
I will side with the home Tigers in this matchup as Los Angeles still cannot seem to score runs on the road at the sportsbook.
