Detroit -1½ +150 over Pittsburgh
7:05 PM EST. The Tigers were warming before running into the Red Sox on the weekend but they figure to find the Pirates much more beatable. Besides, Tarik Skubal (RHP - DET) is red-hot coming into this start, as each of his last five have resulted in pure quality gems. Over that time he owns a 32/7 K/BB in 32 IP. Backing up his solid surface stats are a nice 3.12 xERA and elite 6.1 K/BB mark.
Jose Quintana (LHP - PIT) will pitch opposite Tarik Skubal, yet does face a Tigers offense who doesn't hit left-handed pitching well with just a .635 OPS. We don’t care, as the price on the Tigers with Skubal going is just too juicy to pass up. If the Tigers can score four, we love our chances.
Detroit -1½ +150 (Risking 2 units - To Win: 3.00)
