Tigers top Orioles again
The Tigers snapped a three-game losing streak on Saturday with a 9-5 victory. They are now 4-1 against the Orioles this year. Saturday’s win moves the Tigers to 11-14 on the season and 5-7 on the road. The Tigers are scoring 4.58 runs per game while allowing 4.79 per contest.
Daniel Norris is making just his second start, as he has mostly appeared in relief efforts. He has an 0-1 record with a 4.85 ERA and 1.54 WHIP. Norris has pitched 13 innings this season and has 16 strikeouts with seven walks.
Orioles falling apart
Baltimore was unable to get back-to-back wins on Saturday. They have lost six of their last seven games. The Orioles are now 7-20 overall and 4-10 at home. Baltimore is putting up just 3.38 runs per game this season while allowing 5.38 per game.
Kevin Gausman takes the mound for the Orioles this afternoon. He is 1-2 through five starts with a 4.66 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP. Over 29 innings of work this season, he has 26 strikeouts with seven walks. He also has given up seven home runs. In a start at Detroit, he took a no-decision as he allowed two runs over six innings in a 6-5 loss for Baltimore.
MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers are 5-1 in Norris’ last six road starts and 7-1 in his last eight road starts against a losing team. Detroit is just 10-26 in its last 36 road games.
The Orioles are 2-9 in their last 11 games against AL Central opponents. They also are just 2-6 in Gausman’s last eight starts and 1-4 in his last five home starts.
The Tigers aren’t a team you can expect a lot of consistency from and they have a questionable starter today, but I like them to win on Sunday. Gausman doesn’t have much of a bullpen to turn to if he struggles or if his lineup can’t produce. Detroit isn’t known for much of a bullpen either, but the Tigers average more than 1 run per game more than Baltimore.
The Pick: Detroit Tigers +140
