American League Baseball: Tigers @ Angels Game Day Preview
Detroit (45-41) has dropped into second place in the AL Central (1.5 GB of the Indians) as they have gone 5-5 in their last ten games. The Angels have an identical 45-41 record but they have been on fire as of late. The Angels have climbed into a virtual tie for first in the AL West (Texas Rangers) with a 14-5 run since May 6, 2011.
RHP Justin Verlander (10-3 2.38 ERA) is looking to become the Majors first 12 game winner as he heads to the hill for the Tigers. We have preached the virtues of Verlander all season and it’s all well deserved.
The “Vaporizer” has won nine of his last eleven starts and the Tigers haven’t lost, when Verlander has started, since a 4-3 loss to the Red Sox back on May 19, 2011.
RHP Dan Haren (8-5 2.85 ERA) gets the call for the Angels tonight. Haren pitched 7.1 innings of two hit ball to earn a 1-0 win against the Washington Nationals in his last outing on May 29, 2011.
After a 4-0 start to the season, Haren went seven games without a win but he has rebounded with victories in four of his last six starts.
MLB Wagering Lines: Tigers vs. Angels Free Baseball Prediction
There isn’t a lot separating the Tigers and Angels as is evident by today’s MLB wagering lines featured in the online sportsbook at the JustBet sports betting website.
A first inning home run from slugger Torri Hunter, and another one by Vernon Wells in the eight inning, powered the Angles in the series opener. After an early season slump, Wells has rediscovered his power stroke as he has hit dingers in five of his last nine games.
Detroit can bust out the bats at anytime. The Tigers have scored at least five runs in four of the seven games they have played after they have scored one run in a game – as they did last night. Catcher Victor Martinez, who is 9 for 18 in his career versus Haren, is listed as day-to-day (shoulder) but we expect him to start tonight.
Win or lose you have to stick with the hot hand. When Verlander is pitching – we are catching. Based on tonight’s -111 Money Line, bettors would have a solid 481.08 units in the bank if they have backed Detroit when Verlander has started. The Tigers are also 56-29 since 2009 – good for a 2145 .04 unit profit over two and a half seasons.
This season, the Tigers are 12-6 with their ace on the hill – make it 13-6 after tonight!
