Tigers Betting Preview
Detroit moved to 20-23 after losing to Washington l. The Tigers controlled the entire contest, and they’ll now look to bring the brooms out for the first time this season. The Detroit offense is scoring 2.72 runs per game, while batting .216, with a .281 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.64 ERA, with a 1.21 WHIP. Riley Greene has recorded multiple hits in four of the last six games, and he leads the Tigers in batting (.289). Spencer Torkelson homered in yesterday’s contest, and he leads the team in RBI (20).
Joey Wentz (1-3, 6.38 ERA, 30 Ks) will get the ball for Detroit. The second-year lefty had another tough time last week with Seattle, failing to make it thru the third inning, and giving up three runs. Wentz has yet to pitch a quality start through eight appearances, and it’s unlikely things change in DC here.
Nationals Betting Preview
Washington dropped to 19-27 after defeating Detroit. The Nationals squandered at the plate last night, and they’ll look for stronger play on Saturday. The Washington offense is scoring 3.42 runs per game, while batting .252, with a .316 on-base percentage. The pitching staff carries a 4.36 ERA, with a 1.40 WHIP. Lane Thomas has recorded a pair of RBI in both matchups with Detroit, and he now leads the team in batting (.292) and runs (29). CJ Abrams has doubled in both contest, and he’s tied for the team-lead in RBI with Thomas at 23.
Josiah Gray (3-5, 2.73 ERA, 45 Ks) will take the hill for Washington. The third-year pitcher delivered another strong performance in Miami last week, going seven innings and allowing just one run to the Marlins. Gray has pitched four quality starts in his last five outings, and he has a good chance of earning a win here against Detroit.
Detroit vs Washington Trends
Detroit is 24-19 against the spread this season, with a 21-21-1 O/U record. Washington s 29-17 ATS this year, with a 19-24-3 over/under record.
Corey’s Free Pick
Despite their lopsided record, Washington is favored here with good reason. The Nats will send their best pitcher to the mound in Josiah Gray, and good things have happened when they’ve given him the ball this season. Joey Wentz has been the complete opposite for Detroit, and he can be targeted coming into this spot. Trust a strong outing from Gray here at home, and bet Washington for the series finale.
