Houston Astros vs Detroit Tigers, MLB Free Pick Monday 5/13/19
Houston Astros vs Detroit Tigers (7:10 PM)
Brad Peacock (3-2 4.30 ERA) vs Matthew Boyd (4-2 2.86 ERA)
If you've never watched of Matthew Boyd, it's time that you start. Boyd is a great pitcher on a bad team. He's gone at least six innings in every start this season but one and has never allowed more than three earned runs in any of his appearances. His 0.93 WHIP is one of the best in baseball and he has 63 strikeouts and 11 walks in 50 1/3 innings. There is a reason a hot Houston team is only a -148 favorite, and its Boyd. He will have a tough test tonight but if he can shut down the red hot Astros right now (who are good against lefties), he will get himself into some early season Cy Young talks. I'm trusting the man to do his thing tonight, put your money on Detroit, let's just hope his offense can get him a couple runs, but Peacock should give them plenty of opportunities to do so.
Houston 1 - Detroit 3
Best Bets: Detroit ML+134, Detroit RL+115 and Under 8-101
