The Detroit Tigers will play the Los Angeles Dodgers in Game 1 of their series at Dodger Stadium on Friday night.

The Detroit Tigers are 6-12 this season and have lost five games in a row. Detroit is coming off of a series loss against Minnesota, where they lost all three games in Minnesota. The Detroit pitching staff has a 3.41 ERA, a 1.19 WHIP, and a .235 opponent batting average this season. The Tigers offense has scored 58 runs with a .229 batting average and a .310 on base percentage. Robbie Grossman is batting .327 with 0 home runs and five RBI’s for the Tigers this season. The projected starter for Detroit is Tyler Alexander, who is 0-2 with a 7.20 ERA and a 1.70 WHIP over 10 innings pitched.

The Los Angeles Dodgers are 12-6 this season and have lost three of their last five games. Los Angeles is coming off of a series loss to Arizona, where they lost two of the three games in Arizona. The Los Angeles pitching staff has a 2.21 ERA, a 0.90 WHIP, and a .178 opponent batting average. The Dodgers offense has scored 90 runs with a .244 batting average and a .331 on base percentage this year. Freddie Freeman is batting .310 with three home runs and nine RBI’s for the Dodgers this season. The projected starter for Los Angeles is Tyler Anderson, who is 1-0 with a 2.84 ERA and a 0.87 WHIP over 12.2 innings pitched this season.

Detroit is 4-1 in their last 5 interleague games as an underdog and 15-37 in their last 52 Friday games. The under is 7-1 in Detroit’s last 8 games against the NL West. Los Angeles is 5-1 in their last 6 Friday games and 45-13 in their last 58 home games. The under is 7-1 in Los Angeles’ last 8 games.

On paper, this looks like quite the mismatch that the Dodgers should win. The Dodgers have the better lineup and are going up against a pitcher that has an ERA over 7. On top of that, the Tigers offense has really struggled this season and will be facing Anderson, who has been very sharp to start the season. I like the Dodgers -1.5 here.
