Location: Nationals Park, Washington DC
Tigers vs. Nationals On TV: MLB Network
Detroit Tigers (Anibal Sanchez) +100
Washington Nationals (Jordan Zimmerman) -110
This is a heck of a pitching matchup in this game, as we know that both RHP Anibal Sanchez and RHP Jordan Zimmerman can both put together great outings. Both of these men have sub-2.00 ERAs at this point, but we still aren’t all that sure offense isn’t what we should be backing. Do remember that Detroit is averaging 5.47 runs per game this year, the best such mark in the game, and the team is batting .285 this year. Yes, the Nationals rank 27th in the MLB in total offense at just 3.53 runs per game, and they also are playing in a pitcher’s park, but we have to think that their offense is going to pick it up at some point in the near future. Washington has scored 11 runs in its last two games, while Detroit has put up 26 runs in its last two games. That’s more than good enough for us. It isn’t going to take a whole heck of a lot to get this game up to the ‘total’, as both teams would have to score just three runs to get this one to at least be a push. However, we think that both starting pitchers are going to be knocked around just a bit, at least in relation to what they are used to conceding in this game to push this one past the ‘total’ by a relatively comfortable margin.
Detroit Tigers @ Washington Nationals Pick: Over 7
Detroit Tigers @ Washington Nationals Score Prediction: Nationals 6 – Tigers 4
