Detroit vs. Toronto,
07/27/2012 19:07 EDT,
Score: 3 - 8
Money Line: +106 Detroit
The Detroit Tigers are showing great value tonight as a small underdog to the Toronto Blue Jays. The Tigers have won 14 of their last 18 games overall, but after losing two of three last series against Cleveland, they'll be motivated to get back in the win column tonight.
Rick Porcello is 7-5 with a 4.40 ERA in 19 starts this season, and 4-2 with a 4.02 ERA in eight road starts. He gave up just one earned run over 8 innings in a 7-1 victory over the Chicago White Sox in his last start on July 21st.
The right-hander is 2-2 with a 3.75 ERA and 1.167 WHIP in four career starts against the Blue Jays. Porcello will be up against a Toronto team that is still without its best player, Jose Bautista.
Porcello is 8-0 (+8.2 Units) against the money line in July games over the last 2 seasons. The Tigers are 5-0 in their last 5 games as an underdog. Detroit is 5-0 in Porcello's last 5 starts. The Tigers are 4-0 in Porcello's last 4 starts as an underdog. These four trends make for a perfect 22-0 system backing Detroit. Bet the Tigers Friday.
