Detroit Tigers (Justin Verlander) +115
Texas Rangers (Yu Darvish) -125
It’s the really square thing to do, but we are going to have no choice but to make our MLB predictions on the ‘under’ in this game. RHP Yu Darvish has been remarkable. He has been allowing too many home runs, and the possibility is there that he could be taken out of the park again in this game, but in the end, he has struck out at least eight batters in six straight starts, and this should be no exception. Just getting Darvish on our side alone is appealing, but now throw in there the fact that RHP Justin Verlander is going to be the man coming out of the other dugout. Verlander has a sub-2.00 ERA this season, and he deserves a whole heck of a lot better than a 4-3 record suggests. This is going to be one of these games where Verlander just takes over as we see it. Detroit could win this game, and we would take Verlander as an underdog in any situation, but in the end, we think that the Tigers won’t be able to generate nearly enough runs to get the job done and get this one past the number. The ‘under’ is the safest play to make on Thursday night, as more often than not, there is no way that this game is getting to eight runs.
