The total has gone Over in the last 4 games between these division rivals and look for that trend to continue with a couple of struggling pitchers on the mound.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER the Number
Both Verlander and Hammel have not been pitching well as of late, but something tells me Verlander will have the better outing.
It helps that he is facing the pretty weak lineup of KC and while he may not have the best outing the Tigers will light up the scoreboard for the 3rd straight game. The Tigers will get another W and go for the series sweep tomorrow.
