Detroit Tigers vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

Zac Gallen sits with an ERA of 2.68 and in his last start he gave up two runs. Flaherty has an 0-3 record but he does have a solid ERA of 3.88. The Tigers offense especially isn’t exactly elite and they are going to really struggle to get the offense going here. The Diamondbacks aren’t going to be any better here, and that will be the difference here as this game is going to stay under the total.
