The Detroit Tigers and Colorado Rockies meet for the first of their three-game series from Detroit. All odds for all games can be found by visiting Top Bet sportsbook.
The Tigers continue to tread water in their division as the entire baseball world looks for them to make their move. The Tigers have been mediocre this season in large part due to a 13 – 16 home record. They sit 4.5 games back in the division and will be looking to make their move starting this weekend vs. the Rockies. The Tigers have gotten good hitting out of their big sluggers Prince Fielder and Miguel Cabrera and will be looking for good performances from them on Friday along with a solid outing by starting pitcher Casey Crosby who will make his third start of the season. Crosby has not given Tigers fans anything to cheer about pitching to a 9.35 ERA in just eight innings of work.
The Rockies are the owners of the longest losing streak in baseball as of today. They have lost eight games in a row and are a dreadful 9-17 on the road this season. The Rockies starting pitching staff has been dreadful all season and they will start Jeff Francis on Friday who only has one start of the season and was shelved in that lonely out.
Detroit is 44-14 in their last 58 interleague home games, 0-11 in their last 11 games against a left handed starter, and 0-5 in game one of a series. Colorado is 1-4 in their last five road games, 0-5 in their last five games against a team with a losing record, and 0-4 in Francis’ last four starts. Colorado has won four of the last five meetings of these two.
This one is setting up for a very solid over pick on the total runs scored. Take the over and don’t look back at sports books.
