Tigers at Rockies picks and predictions


Tigers 9 Rockies 4


BET TIGERS (-115).

Both Detroit and Colorado are struggling this season. The Tigers are bad on the road and the Rockies are bad at home. Gomber has struggled all season long and has failed to get out of the 5th inning in 4 of his 5 starts in June while recording a 7.04 ERA.

Run line/Against the spread

LEAN TIGERS -1.5 (+125).

I like the Tigers to cover here but bet lightly as both the moneyline and O/U are both safer bets. Detroit is 4-10 in its last 14 games in Colorado but has been the better team this season and might be able to get it done vs. Gomber on Friday.


LEAN OVER 11 (-120).

The Over is 4-0-1 in Detroit’s last 5 games overall and 4-0 in their last 4 interleague games. The Over is 6-0 in Colorado’s last 6 interleague home games vs. a team with a losing record per

The only reason this is just a lean is that the Under is 6-1 in their last 7 head-to-head matchups and 6-2-1 in their last 9 meetings in Colorado.
