Shane’s Free Pick
The Tigers offense has been awful to start to the season, and it’s not going to get any better going against Springs who finished last season with an ERA of 2.46. Look for the Rays to score five or six runs here, and the Tigers are going to struggle to get even a run. Back the Rays to secure the victory on the run line.
