Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach MLB Friday
Detroit Tigers vs Texas Rangers @ 7:10 ET
Summer weather is definitely not quite here yet and it will be a chilly and rather raw evening in Detroit Friday. That certainly isn’t going to help the hitters and that’s bad news for a Texas team that is hitting only .207 in road games this season! Even though Daniel Norris does not have impressive numbers this season his most recent home start was his 2nd quality start in 3 home outings this season.
In those two strong efforts, Norris has given up only 4 earned runs in 12 and 1/3 innings and he struck out 8 in 6 innings in his most recent home start. The Rangers will have Nick Martinez on the mound and he held the Tigers to 1 earned run in 6 innings in his most recent start at Detroit and that was 3 seasons ago. The Tigers haven’t faced him since 2014 so they are not that familiar with him and that is an edge for the pitcher as well. The Rangers had an offensive explosion in their most recent road game but, prior to that, had averaged just 2.25 runs per game in their 4 prior road games. The Tigers have been held to 9 hits or less in 9 of their last 11 games! The under has cashed in 11 of 19 games when Detroit is off of a win this season.
The under is 13-7 this season when the Rangers are off of a win. Also, the under is 5-2 in Rangers games against southpaw starters this season. This season the under is 8-4 in Texas games with a posted total of 9 or 9.5 runs. Also, when on the road with a posted total of 9 or 9.5 runs, the Rangers have gone 24-13 to the under in recent seasons. Look for more of the same on a chilly night at Comerica Park Friday.
Free Pick on UNDER the total of 9.5 at -115 in Detroit. Best of luck, Scott “The Bulldog” Rickenbach
