Tigers @ Twins: MLB Game Day Preview

By splitting the series with Cleveland, Minnesota failed to gain any ground on the division co-division leaders as they remain five games back in the Central. The Twins are still trying to recover from a 16-33 start to the season as they were 14.5 games back on May 27, 2011.

Detroit has been fighting for first place with the Cleveland Indians since the middle of June. The Tigers have won all five match-ups versus the Twins this season and nine in a row dating back to 09/24 of the 2010 MLB season.

One of our “go to guys” is on the mound tonight as RHP Justin Verlander (12-5, 2.29 ERA) gets the call for Detroit. Verlander struggled in last start as he gave up four runs, in six innings of work, against the Chicago White Sox. That doesn’t concern us though as the Vaporizer has not lost back-to-back games since his second and third starts of the 2011 MLB season back in April.

RHP Carl Pavano (6-6, 4.08 ERA) has been a workhorse for the Twins as he has pitched at least seven innings in ten of his last eleven starts. Pavano has allowed three earned runs or less in eight of those contest and has a 4-2 record (five no-decisions) over that span.

We make no secret of the fact that when Verlander is pitching – we are catching with the Tigers. Minnesota has scored four runs or less in six of the last seven games and we expect that power outage to continue against the Vaporizer tonight.

Take the Tigers over the Twins at -1.5 (+100) on the Bet Online Point Spread!
