Free MLB Pick: Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals: September 8th 2009
Get in early as this line is surely to end up over 170. Play a small R/L wager and double on M/L for today.
DET has been nails lately winning 6 in a row which included a weekend sweep of TB on the road. Also today they have there young stud Rookie Porcello on the mound. He has seemed to catch his second win as he has been great his last two outtings both wins. He has split his games against KC this season going 12 innings and only allowing 6 runs. This should be enough today as DET’s lineup has been playing very well putting up very strong numbers.
KC on the other hand has been horrible since the break. Recently they have lost 7 of last 10 and have not won back to back games since late July and are an even worse 5-20 at home since the All-Star break. Today they turn to Chen to try and turn there hopes around. He is coming off his only win of the season and first since 2005. This year he is a dismal 1-6 and today can’t imagine any way he gets win #2. This lineup won’t help him as they are ice cold. Scoring only 4 runs in last three games. Worst hitting team in majors without a doubt.
Take the R/L small and double down on M/L for DET!!
