Money Line: -148 Detroit

Sportsbook: Pinnacle

Result: Loss

4-unit Play Take #932 Detroit Tigers over Oakland A's (1:05pm EST) Power pitchers win in the playoffs and today we have one of the best in the business in Anibal Sanchez. He doesn't get a ton of attention in Detroit due to the accolades that Justin Verlander and Max Scherzer have enjoyed the last couple of seasons, but Sanchez is the goods. At 14-8 with a 2.57 ERA and 1.15 WHIP, he could be Detroit's best pitcher right now. He has 34 punch outs over his last 23 2/3 innings and has seemingly been in a nice groove for the entire season. He'll face a tough Oakland lineup today, but he probably won't have to be perfect in this one. That's because the A's Jarrod Parker will be out there, and he's been struggling lately. In his last three outings, the right-hander has a robust 9.20 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. Those starts were against the Mariners, Twins and Angels - not exactly the cream of the crop offenses. Detroit will pose many more problems and they love hitting at home. The Tigers have been tough to beat in Comerica Park over the last few years, winning 50+ games at home in five straight seasons. The line on this game is a bit higher than we usually like playing, but all signs point to a Tigers victory today.
Best of Luck - Doc's Sports
