The New York Yankees will play the Detroit Tigers in Game 1 of their series at Comerica Park on Tuesday night.
The New York Yankees are 5-5 this season and have lost two of their last three games. New York is coming off of a series loss to the Orioles, losing two of the three games. The New York pitching staff has a 2.53 ERA, a 1.12 WHIP, and a .203 opponent batting average this season. The Yankees offense has scored 30 runs with a .229 batting average and a .311 on base percentage. Anthony Rizzo has three home runs and 8 RBI’s for the Yankees this season. The projected starter for New York is Gerrit Cole, who is 0-0 this season with a 5.59 ERA and a 1.03 WHIP over 9.2 innings pitched.
The Detroit Tigers are 4-5 this season and have won two of their last three games. Detroit’s last game was postponed, but they still won two of three from the Royals. The Detroit pitching staff has a 3.71 ERA, 1.19 WHIP, and a .246 opponent batting average. The Tigers offense has scored 28 runs with a .201 batting average and a .290 on base percentage this year. Austin Meadows has a .417 batting average and two RBI’s so far this season for the Tigers. The projected starter for Detroit is Tyler Alexander, who is 0-0 this season with a 5.06 ERA and a 0.94 WHIP across 5.1 innings pitched this season.
The under is 4-0 in New York’s last 4 games and the over is 6-0 in Cole’s last starts as a favorite. The under is 5-0 in Detroit’s last 5 Tuesday games and the under is 5-0 in Alexander’s last 5 starts. The under is 4-0 in these two teams last 4 head to head meetings and the Yankees are 2-5 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings in Detroit.
The Yankees come into this game as pretty heavy favorites, but Cole has looked shaky to start the year. The Tigers are going with Alexander on the bump, so the Yankees have the pitching advantage. The wind looks like it is going to be blowing out at a pretty good clip, so I have to take the over here.
