Detroit is 15-38 in their last 53 Friday games and 2-9 in their last 11 games. The under is 22-9-2 in Detroit’s last 33 road games. Houston is 6-0 in their last 6 games as a favorite and 8-2 in their last 10 games. The under is 9-2 in Houston’s last 11 games. Detroit is 4-2 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in Houston.

The Tigers offense continues to be absolute trash and has really let down a very good start to the season by their pitchers. Houston is much more balanced and will be going with a more experienced pitcher. The last time Brieske took the mound, he held the Dodgers to 1 run and Detroit won, maybe they can bottle that up and recreate it here. I don’t think that will happen and I like Houston by 2.
