MLB Picks: Detroit Tigers vs. Tampa Bay Rays

After blowing a two-run lead in the ninth last night, will the Tigers rebound with a win against the Rays today at 1:10PM ET?

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI and MyBookie, the Rays are -107 on the money line to win today’s game against the Tigers, who have odds of -103 to win in Tampa. With Daniel Norris set to face Erasmo Ramirez in the pitching matchup, the over/under currently sits at 8 runs for today’s game.

Through two games Norris is 1-0 with a 2.19 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. He pitched six scoreless innings last Friday, allowing two hits and issuing four walks while striking out five in a win over the Indians. He struggled with his command, as evidence by the walks, but he walked away unscatched and with his first victory of the season.

Tampa Bay manager Kevin Cash confirmed earlier this week that Ramirez would enter the starting rotation for the Rays today. The reason for Ramirez’s addition to the rotation is because Jake Odorizzi is sidelined with a hamstring injury. Ramirez has prior experience as a starting pitcher, so he was the natural choice to replace Oddorizzi.

Bet Today’s Tigers vs. Rays Game

OUR PICK: The Tigers are 5-0 in Norris’ last five road starts, are 4-0 in his last four road outings versus a team with a losing record and they’ve won seven of his last nine starts overall. On the other side, the Rays are 1-4 in Ramirez’s last five home starts and have dropped four out of his last five outings when facing teams from the American League Central.
