The Detroit Tigers have a huge edge on the mound in this one. Justin Verlander won the 2011 AL Cy Young along with the 2011 AL MVP award last year, and he hasn’t missed a beat this season. With the Tigers trailing the White Sox by 1.5 games for the AL Central lead, he’ll cetainly be on top of his game tonight.
Verlander is on his way to another Cy Young award this year, going 10-5 with a 2.43 ERA and 0.931 WHIP in 19 starts. That includes 4-2 with a 1.61 ERA and 0.860 WHIP in eight home starts. In his last two starts against the White Sox, Verlander is 2-0 with a 0.63 ERA while allowing one earned run over 14 1/3 innings.
Jake Peavy is having a solid season for Chicago as well at 7-6 with a 3.12 ERA and 1.039 WHIP in 18 starts. But he’s showed signs of wearing down of late, especially in his last start where he allowed six earned runs and 13 base runners over 7 innings at Kansas City. In his last two starts against the Tigers, Peavy has allowed nine earned runs, 19 base runners and three homers over 13 innings.
Verlander is 41-9 against the money line as a favorite of -150 or more over the last 3 seasons. Verlander is 11-0 against the money line in home games when playing against a good team (Win Pct. 54% to 62%) over the last 3 seasons. The White Sox are 0-4 in Peavy’s last 4 road starts. Bet the Tigers Friday.
