15* MLB Wednesday No-Doubt Rout on Detroit Tigers -107
Seattle vs. Detroit,
04/25/2012 19:05 EDT,
Score: 9 - 1
Money Line: -107 Detroit
Felix Hernandez is one of the best starters in baseball. However, he plays on one of the worst teams in the league, and he's constantly overvalued as a result. I'll gladly back the Detroit Tigers at this generous price at home tonight.
The Tigers are going to be highly motivated for a win tonight considering they've lost four of their last five overall. Starter Adam Wilk has been respectable in two starts this season against the Rangers and White Sox. He has posted a 4.00 ERA while allowing four earned runs in 9 innings.
Detroit is 21-7 against the money line after having lost 3 of their last 4 games over the last 2 seasons. The Mariners are 4-10 in Hernandez's last 14 starts vs. a team with a winning record, 2-5 in his last 7 starts overall, and 0-5 in his last 5 starts with 5 days of rest.
The Tigers are 43-12 in their last 55 after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game. Detroit is 22-5 in their last 27 during game 2 of a series. The Tigers are 8-1 in their last 9 games vs. a starter with a WHIP less than 1.15. Detroit is 7-1 in their last 8 vs. a team with a losing record. Take the Tigers Wednesday.
