Tigers lose 11th straight
The Detroit Tigers suffered an 11th straight loss on Saturday in a 4-3 defeat to the Blue Jays. Detroit is now 36-48 overall and 13-29 on the road. The Tigers are averaging just 4.01 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.74 per game on the mound.
Jordan Zimmerman is on the mound for the Tigers this afternoon. He has started nine games and has a 2-0 record on the year. Zimmerman holds a 4.35 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP. Over 41.1 innings of work, he has 39 strikeouts with 10 walks.
Blue Jays eye sweep
Toronto is looking to secure a sweep of the Tigers after winning the first two games in the series by a single run. The Blue Jays are now 39-43 overall and 22-20 at home. The Blue Jays are putting up 4.48 runs per game on offense this year while allowing 4.89 per contest.
J.A. Happ takes the mound for Toronto on Sunday. He is 10-3 through 16 starts this season and has a 3.62 ERA with a 1.06 WHIP. Happ has pitched a total of 97.0 innings and has 106 strikeouts with 27 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers are just 2-6 in their last eight against AL East opponents and 19-46 in their last 65 road games.
The Blue Jays have won 10 of their last 11 at home and five straight Sunday games. They also have won seven of Happ’s last eight home starts.
Zimmerman hasn’t been terrible on the road, but he hasn’t been great either. Happ has given the Jays a nice boost on the mound this year and he is coming off a big win over the Astros in his last start. Toronto has won six of his last eight starts and I think they will find a way past the Jays again.
The Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -200
