Betting Analysis

Time is running out for both of these teams and their playoff chances, especially the Tigers, who have dropped 5 straight. They are out of the AL Central race and their only chance to make the playoffs will be the Wild Card where they are 5.5 games out of the last AL spot.

The Angels snapped their 4-game losing streak in Game 1 of this series and they are 5 games out of first place in the AL West and only ? game out of the last AL Wild Card spot.

Santiago is 0-3 with a 5.06 ERA in his last 6 starts.

Verlander is 1-3 with a 1.67 ERA in 6 starts after going 0-3 with a 6.62 mark in his first 6 outings since coming off the DL. In 13 career starts against the Angels he is 4-6 with an ERA of 4.07.

Santiago will be facing a Detroit lineup that ranks 5th in the Majors in runs scored. The Detroit pitching has been the weakness of the club this season ranking 27th in team ERA. They have scored 12 runs in their last 2 games, but have also given up 20.

Santiago is an All Star this season, but has been struggling while former Cy Young winner Verlander has been solid as of late, but has not received much run support in his starts. Still, at home I am taking the Tigers, as they will win tonight, snap their 5-game skid, and keep their slim playoff hopes alive.
