Betting Pick:

David Price has pitched 7 straight quality starts and has done well against the Tigers is his career allowing 2 or fewer runs winning 4 of his 5 starts (4-1 2.41). Rick Porcello has back to back complete game shut outs and hasn’t allowed a run in his last 3 starts. In fact he hasn’t allowed a run in 25 innings. He’s done well against the Rays with a 2-2 record with a 2.73 ERA. Tampa Bay has finally found their batting stroke and yes Detroit is among the league leaders in scoring but this game sets up as a pitcher’s duel.
