The Line: Detroit Tigers -126 / Philadelphia Phillies +116 --- Over/Under: 8.5 See the Latest Odds
The Detroit Tigers look to stay red hot as they continue their series with the Philadelphia Phillies at Comerica Park on Wednesday.
The Phillies look to get back in the win column and shake off a tough 3-1 loss yesterday as they get back at it tonight with Aaron Nola on the mound as he will face off against a potent Tigers offense that is starting to pick up steam. The Phils were expected to be in the league basement heading into the season but a very hot start has them five games clear of the .500 mark and very much in contention for a potential playoff spot, though they are bound to regress in the very competitive NL East. Nola is 3-3 with a very impressive 2.85 ERA so far this season and he will take on Anibal Sanchez who is 3-5 with a very concerning 6.23 ERA.

The Tigers play an afternoon affair against the Phillies as they look for another win against their interleague foes but will need their bats to do some damage against the young Aaron Nola who has been excellent this season. Detroit has a ton of power at the dish as the likes of Miguel Cabrera and Nick Castellanos have been dynamite and give the Tigers a chance to win with one swing of the bat and if their rotation can play catch up a bit they will certainly be in the mix for a playoff spot in September.
The Phillies are 5-1 in Nola’s last six starts, 4-1 in their last five during game three of a series, and 4-0 in Nola’s last four road starts while the Tigers are 7-1 in their last eight overall, 6-1 in their last seven home games, and 14-5 in their last 19 on a Wednesday. This should be another exciting game with these two but I anticipate some of the Tigers getting the day off and with the pithing edge going to the Phils I am going to take a swing with them at a nice price.
