Will update with trends once they're released.
The Tigers are coming out of nowhere with these victories, and they've won five of their last six games with Sanchez on the hill. While Jimenez has been decent in his last few starts, he's one of those pitchers I don't trust much and especially don't like laying juice with. Add the fact the O's offense has cooled off a bit recently, and I like the value of the Tigers and the plus money in this spot.
