Not surprisingly, with two mediocre pitchers on the hill in hitter friendly Coors field, the game total is a lofty -125 OVER 9 runs.

Tigers versus Rockies games usually result in beer league softball type scores and that should hold true tonight. In their last ten games in Denver, Colorado outscored Detroit by a 75-53 margin.  At an average of 12.8 runs per game, the total has gone OVER nine runs in eight of the last ten contests.

Detroit has had a coupe of days to get used to the elevation in the “Mile-High City “ and they have the better starting pitcher on the bump in this one. As much as we like them to win tonight, we also like the game total to go over.

After a careful review of this match-up, we are going to stray off our beaten path a bit tonight. We will go with a 50-unit parlay wager along with a 50-unit straight bet for this slugfest in the making.

Take a parlay on Detroit with the Money Line (+140) and OVER at Justbet!
