Houston Astros vs Detroit Tigers, MLB Free Pick Wednesday 5/15/19
Houston Astros vs Detroit Tigers (7:10 PM)
Justin Verlander (6-1 2.51 ERA) vs Gregory Soto (0-1 15.75 ERA)
- Houston is 7-0 SU in their last 7 games.
- Houston is 5-0 SU in their last 5 games against Detroit.
- Detroit is 2-5 SU in their last 7 games.
The Astros started the season 2-5 and now have a record of 28-15. They are the hottest team in baseball right now and have outscored the Tigers 19-5 in the two previous games of the series. The Astros are now first in the league in runs, hits, hits allowed, batting average, OBP, SLG, OPS, WHIP, and BAA. Aside from stolen bases (17th), the Astros are top five in baseball in virtually every major category.
A Tigers’ offense that ranks second-to-last in runs per game is going to struggle against a hot Verlander. The Astros are currently the most dominant team in baseball and will have no trouble handling the Tigers today. I think the Under hits today due to the Tigers having trouble scoring more than one or two runs.
Houston 7 - Detroit 1
Best Picks: Houston ML-330, Houston RL-230, and Under 10-115
