Money Line: -142 Detroit
[b]Orioles -123 3.5* MLB POD[/b]
Phelps has struggled in his two starts against the Orioles who are able to get him in good counts and hit home runs. Baltimore should be able to do the same today while Zach Britton has looked okay in his last two starts, but the thing I like about him today is he knows he's probably the odd man out and I'm expecting a solid start against a beatable Yankees line up.
[b]Tigers -138 2* bonus[/b]
No Longoria this is simply too much value with Verlander on the mound who has been very unlucky this year with a .350+ BABIP. The Rays won't have Longoria who left last night's game and they have been hitting 2.75 runs per 9 VS RHP last 10 games. Verlander 9-3 in his 12 starts vs. the Rays. Tigers 25-12 in their last 37 vs. a starter with a WHIP > 1.30. Chris Archer is walking over 5 batters per 9, Tigers should be able to take advantage.
