Total: -107/+9 Over
*3 Star Play Over* The Detroit Tigers and Oakland A's have both been involved in a lot of high scoring games of late. In Detroit's last ten games there has been an average of 10.6 runs scored. In the A's last ten games, there has been an average of 10.6 runs per game scored.
Detroit's bullpen ranks as the worst in the majors in FIP on the year, and Daniel Norris hasn't been pitching deep into thte game of late. Norris has gone only 3 innings in each of his last 5 outings. Oakland is much better against left handed pitching as well. I would expect Oakland to have a lot of scoring opportunities in this game.
While the Tigers offense isn't good, they are much better against lefties than right handed pitching. Sean Manaea hasn't been going deep into games in the minors either, and while the A's late inning bullpen is great their middle relief is questionable.
A good umpire for the over here in David Rackley.
Take the over.
