The Detroit Tigers enter this game with a 37-43 record, including an 18-21 record on the road. They are currently in fourth place in the American League Central division and have won three of their last five games.

Pitching:

Jack Flaherty will start for the Tigers. Flaherty has a 5-4 record with a 2.92 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP over 83.1 innings pitched. He has been a standout performer for Detroit, with a high strikeout rate and excellent control.

Key Players:

The Tigers are dealing with injuries to Alex Faedo, Jace Jung, Jackson Jobe, Kerry Carpenter, and Javier Baez, which affects their lineup depth.

The Los Angeles Angels hold a 33-46 record, including a 15-25 record at home. They are currently in fourth place in the American League West division and have won three of their last five games.

Pitching:

Davis Daniel will start for the Angels. Daniel's performance is currently unrecorded, indicating he might be making his MLB debut or is relatively new to the league. This creates uncertainty around his potential impact.

Recent Performance:

Team Moneyline Total Run Line
DET (37-43) -165 o8.5 (+105) -1.5 (EVEN)
LAA (33-46) +140 u8.5 (-125) +1.5 (-120)

 

Prediction:

Considering the pitching matchup and recent performances of both teams, the pick for this game is the Detroit Tigers to win. Jack Flaherty, the starting pitcher for the Tigers, has been having an outstanding season with a 2.92 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP. Flaherty's high strikeout rate and excellent control make him a formidable opponent, capable of shutting down the Angels' offense.

On the other side, the Angels are starting Davis Daniel, who lacks a recorded performance in the MLB. This inexperience could be a significant disadvantage against a Tigers team that has shown improvement in recent games.

The Tigers' offense, led by Riley Greene, has been more consistent and productive compared to the Angels. While the Angels have shown flashes of potential, their overall inconsistency and the uncertainty surrounding Daniel's performance make them a less reliable pick.

Additionally, the Tigers have been solid on the road, and with Flaherty on the mound, they have a strong chance of securing a win. Injuries to key players in both teams do affect depth, but the Tigers have managed to navigate their injury challenges more effectively.

Given the combination of Flaherty's excellent season, the Tigers' recent form, and the uncertainty around the Angels' pitching, Detroit is the favored pick to win this matchup.

Pick: Detroit Tigers (-165)
