Detroit Tigers vs Arizona Diamondbacks Prediction

The Arizona Diamondbacks are going to get the benefit of the doubt because they're at home and Jordan Montgomery is supposed to be the better pitcher. The problem is the Diamondbacks have underachieved up to this point and Montgomery hasn't been great so far. You could argue Matt Manning has been the sharper pitcher up to this point. The Tigers are also paying the better ball right now and have a chance to sweep the Diamondbacks. I'll take a stab with the Tigers and the more favorable price.
