Pittsburgh vs. Detroit, 07/02/2015 13:08 EDT, Score: 8 - 4

Money Line: +112 Detroit

Sportsbook: TopBet

Result: Loss

3-unit Play Take #974 Detroit Tigers over Pittsburgh Pirates (1:05pm EST) We played the Tigers yesterday and the result wasn't pretty. The Pirates thumped them 9-3 as starter Alfredo Simon just didn't have his usual stuff. But that was just one game and we're coming back with the Tigers tonight for many of the same reasons we mentioned yesterday. Despite what the records say, the Tigers and Pirates are similarly-rated teams after you consider the league they play in and the strength of schedule. Pittsburgh sends left-hander Francisco Liriano to the hill in this one, and he's been very good of late. However, the Tigers absolutely murder left-handers and they'll be chomping at the bit after being held down the last couple of days. Rookie Kyle Ryan goes for Detroit and I've seen some improvement from him in each outing. He hasn't been able to put it all together in one start, but I think today might be that day. It's too hard to resist taking the Tigers as a home underdog today.
