Shane’s Free Pick

Reese Olson really struggled in his last start giving up six runs and his pitching is going to really struggle in this game. The Yankees bats have been inconsistent, but they will score plenty here. Severino was also good in his last start but overall he has struggled sitting with an ERA of 7.26. The Tigers bats are going to get to Severino and that will be the difference here. Both offenses are going to run up the score here, and the over will cash.
