Astros take opener

The Astros bounced back from their first loss in a week with a 3-2 victory at Detroit behind the arm of former Tigers Justin Verlander. Houston is now 90-54 overall and 50-22 on the road. The Astros are putting up 4.96 runs per game on offense while allowing 3.30 runs per contest.

Framber Valdez is getting the start today for the Astros. He has started three games this season and appeared in four. He holds a 3-1 record with a 1.37 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP. Valdez has 15 strikeouts and 10 walks through 19.2 innings of work.

Tigers edged

The Detroit Tigers couldn’t quite come up with the big hit in Monday’s 3-2 loss to suffer their second straight defeat. The Tigers are now 59-85 overall and 36-36 at home. Detroit is putting up 3.91 runs per game on offense while giving up 4.72 per contest.

Jordan Zimmerman gets the start for the Tigers this evening. He is 7-6 through 21 starts with a 4.03 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. Zimmerman has thrown 111.2 innings this year and has 97 strikeouts and 19 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Houston

The Astros have won 16 of their last 21 games on grass and eight of their last 10 Tuesday games.

Detroit

The Tigers have lost seven of Zimmerman’s last 10 starts overall and 13 of his last 18 starts at home.

Prediction:

The Tigers were competitive on Monday night, but I just can’t trust them to show up night-to-night. Valdez has looked pretty strong in his few starts this year and he has a great bullpen and lineup to back him up. The odds are a little high for my tastes, but I do think the Astros get the job done.

 

The Pick: Houston Astros -220
