Tampa Bay is 38-17 in their last 55 Saturday games and 4-8 in their last 12 road games. The over is 7-2 in Tampa Bay’s last 9 Saturday games. Detroit is 4-10 in their last 14 game three’s of a series and 7-20 in their last 27 games. The over is 6-0-4 in Detroit’s last 10 home games. Tampa Bay is 5-0 in these two teams last 5 head to head meetings.

Tampa Bay had to come from behind from a 3-0 deficit to get the win on Friday night and will look to start the game better in this one. Tampa Bay is starting Shane McClanahan, who has allowed seven runs in his last 11.1 innings pitched. For Detroit, Garrett Hill has allowed 16 runs in his last 20 innings of work. I like the over in this game as I think Tampa Bay will have plenty of scoring chances.
