The Tigers haven’t quite finished it yet, but it appears they’ll get their first win of the current four-game series behind Daniel Norris on Wednesday night.
Norris gave up a run in the third and a run in the fourth but hung tough to get 19 outs and leave with the scored tied.
Converse to what I expected, it was the Detroit bullpen that outdueled Houston’s, Chris Devenski looking like the loser, rather than the winner.
Carlos Correa got the night off and Marwin Gonzalez started at shorstop for Houston.
Justin Verlander gets the ball, looking to earn his Tigers a split in Houston.
Fiers has been a lot like Charlie Morton in the spot before him in the rotation for Houston. He’ll go five, six innings and give up a few runs but that is almost always good enough to put the Astros in a position to win with their offense and bullpen.
Fiers is off of six innings and one earned run against the Indians and has gone six in three of his eight starts this season.
What’s most shocking is the home run figure. Fiers has given up 17 home runs already in 42 innings, that’s one more than Jered Weaver and Ricky Nolasco for worst in the Major’s.
It doesn’t help that he’s in Minute Maid Park, where he’ll start another one on Thursday.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Under is 22-10-2 in Verlanders last 34 on grass.
- HOU are 25-10 in their last 35 games on grass.
- HOU are 27-11 in their last 38 overall.
- HOU are 40-18 in their last 58 games as a favorite.
Free Detroit Tigers vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: Verlander prevails.
JV is a small underdog and we’re going to go that way in a game that I won’t actually touch. There just isn’t enough value either way. Fiers can be ok but if the ball is flying, the Tigers will touch him up big time.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Tigers (+105)
Again, I can’t recommend this side as anything more than a lean.
