Yankees struggling lately

The Yankees haven’t been able to find much consistency this season, as they are just 6-7 overall and 3-4 on the road. New York is coming off a series loss at Boston and they have dropped five of their last eight games. While their bats have been working, producing 5.31 runs per game, their pitching has been a mess and giving up 5.46 runs per contest.

Jordan Montgomery is getting the start tonight and he is coming off a poor start against the Orioles at home, allowing four runs and 10 hits over 4.1 innings. On the year, Montgomery has allowed five runs over 9.1 innings with eight strikeouts and six walks.

Detroit whimpering into series

The Tigers had some optimism about things after a three-game sweep of the White Sox in Chicago last weekend, but Detroit has since lost four straight at Cleveland, scoring just five runs in the four games. The Tigers are now 4-8 overall and they have just a 1-4 record at home. Detroit is averaging 3.58 runs per game while allowing 4.17.

Mike Fiers had a promising debut for the Tigers last Sunday. He pitched six innings and allowed only three hits with one walk in a scoreless effort against the White Sox. He managed six strikeouts in his first start.

MLB Betting Trends

New York

The Yankees have won eight of their last 10 against AL Central opponents and 15 of their last 21 games after a loss. They also have won five of Montgomery’s last seven starts.

Detroit

Detroit has lost 21 of its last 28 series openers and 16 of their last 51 home games. The Tigers are also just 1-4 in their last five against a left-handed starter.

Prediction:

Fiers showed promise in his first start, but he faces a tougher lineup today in the Yankees. Even if he is to pitch well, the Detroit bullpen may not be able to back him up. New York hasn’t pitched well, but the Yankees get to face a Detroit team tonight that has struggled to manufacture runs.

 

The Pick: New York Yankees -165
