Free Pick on Detroit Tigers -1.5
Seattle vs. Detroit,
09/16/2013 19:08 EDT,
Score: 2 - 4
Point Spread: -1½/-102 Detroit
The Tigers are one of the best scoring teams in baseball and should have no problem putting up a big number against Seattle's Joe Saunders today. In his last three starts Saunders has a 6.23 ERA and a 2.231 WHIP. In those three games he has pitched just 4.3 innings per start and given up 24 hits. He is facing a Tigers team that has a .299 batting average at home and scoring 5.3 runs per game.
Seattle's offense is struggling, batting just .212 over their past seven games and scoring 2.7 runs per game. Things will not get any easier when they face Detroit's Rick Porcello today. Porcello has a respectable 4.56 ERA this year and has performed well against the Mariners throughout his career. His team has a 4-2 record in his six career starts against Seattle, and Porcello's ERA improves to 3.79 in those games. Covering this run line should be an easy task for the Tigers today.
