The Tigers have been a sneaky underdog play at times this season, but I can’t get behind Urena on the mound. The Astros are also one of the hotter teams in the league and past years have shown us what they’re capable of when they get on these stretches. I’m not stepping in front of the Astros, and they should have a field day against a wild Urena. Give me the Astros and the RL for max betting value.
