Detroit Tigers at Oakland Athletics
Another elimination game and the right to play the Red Sox in waiting...
Sup people? Stay on your toes we have reverse line movement. Oakland started out as a short home dog, now -106 / Detroit -104 at 5Dimes. You need to hit that baby. Justin Verlander gets the call from Jim Leyland, but Verlander's recent starts have ended in 4 losses in a row. It's not Verlander's fault his game is right on, giving up no runs in last 3 starts and all 4 losses are quality start. Needless to say 3 out of 4 games finished Under. Verlander is also striking out hitters in double digit for 3 straight starts. Oakland will counter with young gun Sonny Gray who was masterful in his last start against Detroit and A's beating Justin Verlander 1-0. Sonny was picked over veteran Bartolo Colon and his starts have finished 5 wins in a row. Both teams will throw everything they have into this game and despite the lopsided win and loss record for these two pitchers we will back Detroit in this spot. Sonny has regressed in games after going 8 innings plus recording no runs, occurred twice in last 10 starts resulting in losses to Seattle at home and Houston at home. Although post season is a different animal with pitchers evolving first year pitchers in post season has failed. We like battle tested Jim Leyland at the helm and battle tested Justin Verlander on the mound. Go against the line movement.
