The Detroit Tigers have been the worst team in the MLB. They are 37.5 games behind the AL Central leading Minnesota Twins. They have been a mess in nearly every category. Their pitching has been poor as they’ve allowed 674 runs the third most in the American League. On offense they are dead last in scoring in baseball with only (437). The offense doesn’t have many productive hitters. Miguel Cabrera has been one of the better hitters on the team with a .278 average. Niko Goodrum has 11 homers and 12 stolen bases.
Detroit has Edwin Jackson on the mound on Monday night. Jackson has been one of the worst pitchers in baseball as he is 3-5 with an 8.26 ERA. In his two starts since arriving with the Tigers he has been terrific. In those outings he allowed three runs in 11.1 innings.
The Houston Astros have been magnificent this season like most expected. They have the best record in the American League 79-46. They are a lock to win the AL Central as they’re 7.5 games in front of the Oakland Athletics. They are well-balanced as they have a terrific rotation and a great offense. On offense they are led by Michael Brantley who is having a monster season batting .335 with 18 homers. Rookie Yordan Alvarez has been incredible with a .335 average and 19 homers in 53 games. Alex Bregman is hitting .282 with 30 homers and 83 RBIs. One can’t forget about guys like George Springer (26 hr), Jose Altuve (22 hr), Yuli Gurriel (25 hr), and Carlos Correa (19 hr).
On the mound for the Astros is Wade Miley. Miley has been one of the more pleasant surprises in the league with a 11-4 record and 3.11 ERA. In his last outing he struggled allowing three runs on nine hits in 3.1 innings against the White Sox.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Over
Despite Jackson’s success in two outings with Detroit I don’t see him repeating it against this potent lineup. I expect Miley to have a decent performance before the bullpen gives up a few runs.
