Detroit -1½ +239 over TEXAS

8:05 PM EST. Through 15 starts, Jose Urena (RHP - DET) is 2-8 with a 6.22 ERA and 5.38 xERA. Meanwhile, Dane Dunning (RHP - TEX) has been an impact pitcher while pitching at home. He has posted a 2.50 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 36 home innings. On the road, Dunning has posted a 7.45 ERA and 1.86 WHIP. Yesterday we mentioned that Globe Life Field is an extreme pitcher’s park, which is further revealed in Dunning’s splits. This park could make anyone look good, which brings us to the teams and not the starters.

Handpick the starters and we’d still be betting on Detroit to beat Texas 100% of the time. It’s a ball game, where anything can happen but with starters having less impact on outcomes, the Tigers become a must play here. Detroit has now won 10 of its last 12 games. They are 30-22 over its last 52 games. As a significant dog again last night, the Tigers had a 7-0 lead before giving up three meaningless runs in the ninth. On Sunday, they had a 6-2 lead in the ninth after knocking out Lucas Giolito. Last night, as they do in almost every game, the Tigers were once again moving runners over, bunting in key situations, scoring with a man on third and less than two outs and stealing bases when warranted but the market continues to treat this team like they’re dregs. A.J. Hinch has the Tigers playing this game the right way. Meanwhile, the real dregs are outrageously priced again.
