3* TIGERS/RAYS MLB UNDERVALUED UNDERDOG

---Tampa Bay Rays +123---

Detroit's Max Scherzer has been lights out in 2013, going 11-0 with a 3.05 ERA in 15 starts, but I think he's getting a little too much respect here. The Tigers aren't playing very good baseball right now, as they were just swept at home by the Angels. Tampa Bay's Alex Colome will be making just his third start of his big league career, but so far I've been impressed. He hasn't allowed an earned run in 10 innings and both of his starts came on the road.

The Tigers have been an excellent team to fade in the first game following a long homestand, as they are a mere 3-14 in road games following 5 or more consecutive home games over the last two seasons. It's also worth mentioning that Detroit's 17-39 in their last 56 games as a road favorite of -110 to -150 and the Rays are a dominant 10-2 in their last 12 games as a home underdog. BET THE RAYS!
