Houston Astros vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
I look for the Astros to continue rolling in this series.
The tigers have played better, but they are not on the level of the Astros. I have little confidence in Detroit winning this one.
The pitching advantage definitely goes to Valdez. I feel like he will be effective and the Astros will be able to hit around Peralta.
I will lay the run line with the Astros.
