The New York pitching staff has a 2.83 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a .214 opponent batting average.

Detroit is 5-1 in their last 6 games and 5-2 in their last 7 games against the AL East. The under is 5-0 in Detroit’s last 5 Friday games. New York is 4-0 in their last 4 Friday games and 45-19 in their last 64 games. The over is 7-0 in New York’s last 7 game one’s of a series. The under is 6-1 in these two teams last 7 head to head meetings.
The Tigers have been playing in their last few games, but face a very tough challenge here. Gerrit Cole has been pretty sharp in his recent starts and is going against an offensively challenged Detroit team. For the Tigers, Rodriguez had a rough first two outings, but was very good through four innings in his last start before leaving due to injury. I am taking the Yankees to win this game by at least two runs.
