The Detroit Tigers and Houston Astros face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Minute Maid Park. Each of the first three games of this series has been a 3-2 victory by the Astros. 

The Tigers sit with an 8-18 record overall and it’s been the offense that has let them down all season. The pitching has been strong, and it hasn’t been enough offense for them to get the job done. Each of the last six games the Tigers have scored three runs or less. The top offensive player for the Tigers has been Javier Baez who has hit two home runs and driven in 11 RBIs. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Houston Astros who sit with a 17-11 record overall and the last three games has been a great representation of their season. The offense hasn’t been great, but it’s been the pitching staff that has allowed this team to stay afloat and still win games. Yordan Alveraz has been the top player for the Astros hitting eight home runs and driving in 15 RBIs.

Getting the start in this game for the Astros is Jake Odorizzi who currently sits with a 2-2 record and an ERA of 4.15. In his last start against the Seattle Mariners, he went 6.2 innings giving up four hits and zero runs. Odorizzi has been a bit inconsistent, but maybe that’s the exact start he needed to get back on track. 

The Astros are 6-0 in their last six home games. The under is 8-2-1 in the Tigers last 11 games during Game 4 of a series. The under is 4-1 in the Astros last five home games. The under is 4-1 in the Astros last five games during Game 4 of a series. 

The trends point towards the under, and runs are going to be very hard to come by in this game. The Astros have scored three runs in each of the last three games and they won’t finish much above that here. Odorizzi is going to lock down the Tigers bats, and that is going to lead to this game staying under the total. Back the under.
