June 18, 2019

MLB EXPERT PICKS - FULL ANALYSIS ATTACHED

DETROIT TIGERS MONEYLINE: 1 UNIT (+144)

 

The Tigers are worth a shot here at generous + value as the Pirates have been one of the worst home teams in the MLB this season at 13-19 with a -5.99 unit deficit. They are also 2-8 in their last 10 games (with their 2 wins coming versus MIA) and are starting a rookie pitcher in Mitch Keller who has managed to accumulate a 15.93 ERA, 3.00 WHIP, allowing 12 earned runs and 21 baserunners in just 7 innings of work this season. Opponents have teed off on him for a .473 batting average in his 2 starts. Extremely small sample size, but these numbers are unfathomably bad and mirror the Blue Jays' Edwin Jackson who has continued to get lit up every start he has made. Despite the Tigers being a bottom feeder team once again this season, they have been a profitable road team to support gaining bettors +2.88 units.
