Cole was solid in his last outing as he put in another quality start, but got the no-decision in a 6-3 victory over the Boston Red Sox.
He went six innings giving up five hits, two earned runs, and one home run while he struck out eight and walked two.
In 182.1 innings of work this season, Cole owns an elite 12.39 K/9, a decent 2.91 BB/9, a solid 0.84 HR/9, and a solid 77.7% LOB%.
The end-result is an excellent 2.86 ERA to go with a similar 2.70 FIP.
Houston has played excellent baseball in the past week winning five of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .276/.351/.458 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 31 RBI.
Norris was all right in his last outing while he picked up the no-decision in a 5-3 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals.
He went five innings giving up four hits, three earned runs, and two home runs while he struck out seven and walked one.
In 24.2 innings of work so far, the lefty owns an excellent 11.68 K/9, a high 4.01 BB/9, a high 2.19 HR/9, and a mediocre 73.2% LOB%.
The end-result is a high 5.47 ERA and a lower but still high 5.19 FIP.
Detroit has played solid baseball in the past week winning four of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .260/.335/.407 to go with 18 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.

Free Houston Astros vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
Houston takes down Detroit on the road.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Tigers OVER Team Total
Cole is still pitching well and will be backed up by a hot Houston lineup that plays well on the road, evidenced by their 46-26 ATS record on the road.
Detroit isn’t pushovers at home as they hit better and own a 38-34 ATS record and have gone 5-0 ATS at home against Houston in their last five matchups.
There isn’t much too like in this one, but I do expect Detroit to creep over their total run threshold.
