Stephen Nover's Day Game Discounted Totals Casher
Tampa Bay vs. Detroit,
05/02/2018 13:10 EDT,
Score: 2 - 3
Total: -110/+8 Under
Two hot pitchers go here. But that's not the only reason I like Under the total. Neither offense has been scoring many runs and this is a day game where weather factors. Tigers starter Michael Fulmer has a strong history when pitching during the day with a career ratio of less 1.00. Commerica Park is a pitcher's park and the wind is blowing in at 15-19 mph.
The Rays have scored only seven runs in their last three games. The Tigers haven't scored more than three runs during six of their last seven games.
Tamp Bay starter Blake Snell is below the radar right now. He hasn't given up more than two runs during any of his past four starts. He has a 34-to-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio during these four games spanning 26 2/3 innings. Snell would catch a break if Miguel Cabrera has to sit out for a third straight game due to a left biceps injury.
Fullmer is looking for his third straight strong start. He's allowed two earned runs during his last two starts spanning 13 innings. He has a 13-to-2 strikeout-to-walk ratio during his last two starts. Fullmer has a 2.36 career ERA versus the Rays in four starts.
