Total: 9.50 | -101.00 Over
While these teams played to a lower-scoring under in the Tigers' 6-2 series opening victory, all signs point to more of an explosive affair on Friday! Baltimore sees Matt Harvey (5-10, 6.65 ERA) toe the slab. Harvey is coming off a rare good outing, holding the Nationals scoreless over six innings. Starts like that have been few and far between for Harvey and I expect an immediate return to mediocrity (he's just 3-4 with a 6.62 ERA on the road.) Tarik Skubal (6-9, 4.42) gets the nod for the home side and he most recently gave up five runs over five innings in a loss to the lowly Royals in his last outing. He's just 2-7 with a 4.98 ERA in all night games this year; look for this total to fly over sooner, rather than later!
T.M. Prediction: 7-6 Detroit.
