Tigers vs Mets Betting Prediction

Detroit comes into this game with one of the better pitching staffs through four games this season. The Tigers have had three great starts and their bullpen has been very effective. Detroit will turn to Casey Mize in this game, who has battled a ton of injuries and really hasn’t pitched much since 2021. New York has had solid pitching to open the season, but their offense has been brutal. The Mets are going with Adrian Houser on the mound, who is just an average pitcher. I am going to go with the Tigers at plus money once again, as I don’t want anything to do with the New York offense.
