New York Yankees vs. Detroit Tigers Preview

The Yankees are coming off a win and still have a comfortable 6.5 game cushion in the AL East. MLB odds have the Tigers as the home favorite with a total of 8 runs.

In their last games the Tigers beat the Cleveland Indians 10-8 and the Yankees beat the Seattle Mariners 6-2.

This season the Yankees have an O/U record of 43-62 and a run-line W/L record of 56-51 and the Tigers have an O/U record of 46-57 and a run-line W/L record of 49-59.

On the season the Tigers are 31-21 at home and the Yankees are 29-22 on the road.

Ivan Nova (10-5, 4.53 ERA) goes for the Yankees tonight and he was shelled in his last start giving up 9 earned runs in 5 innings in a loss to the Orioles. Reigning Cy Young winner Justin Verlander (11-7, 2.63 ERA) gets the nod for the Tigers and he was less than stellar in his last outing giving up 3 earned runs in 5 innings in a loss to the Red Sox.  


The Tigers have lost 6 of their last 7 games when Verlander is on the hill and he is 0-2 with a 4.91 ERA in his last 5 outings against New York.

While Nova is 0-2 with a 7.54 ERA in his last 4 starts he is 7-1 with a 3.32 ERA on the road this season.

Both hurlers will have their work cut out for them in this game, as each team’s offense is playing well.

Derek Jeter and Ichiro Suzuki are each hitting over .330 in their career against Verlander.

Miguel Cabrera hit a HR in last night’s Tigers’ win and he leads the Majors with 91 RBI.

In some betting trends for this game the Yankees are 2-5 in their last 7 road games, 21-6 in Novas last 27 road starts, and they have an Under record of 6-1 in their last 7 road games.

The Tigers are 5-0 in their last 5 home games vs. a team with a winning record, 46-14 in Verlander’s last 60 home starts, and they have an Under record of 8-3-2 in their last 13 games as a favorite.

Jason’s Pick: Verlander has not fared well against the Yankees, but I think he will have a good outing tonight while Nova will get hit hard and the Tigers will win Game 1 of this series.
