ROGERS' SUNDAY 5-GAME SWEEPER PASS (EARLY) > > 58-30 ALL *10* SIDES YTD!
Detroit vs. Texas,
08/04/2019 15:05 EDT,
Score: 4 - 9
Money Line: -176 Texas
The set-up: It’s a rookie vs. a veteran here. The young gun so far has looked solid and I think the home side will take advantage of struggling Detroit starter Jordan Zimmermann here. The Rangers counter with Pedro Payano.
The pitchers: Zimmermann (1-8, 7.23) comes in off his “best” start of the season vs. the Angels on Monday, allowing two runs over five innings. It was his first win of the year. Overall though the vet has been a disaster, especially on the road where he’s just 1-2 with a 7.33 ERA.
Payano (1-0, 3.18) walked four in his “worst” start of the year vs. the hard-hitting A’s on Sunday, allowing just three runs while also striking out four in what turned out to be a no-decision.
The pick: Take it for what you will as well, but Detroit it just 6-17 as a road dog in the +175 to +250 range this year, while Texas is 31-23 (+11.9 units) this season following a victory. Lay the price.
