The Arizona Diamondbacks and Detroit Tigers meet Friday in MLB action at Comerica Park. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Arizona Diamondbacks Betting Preview
The Arizona Diamondbacks have scored 21 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 8 of their last 10 games. The Diamondbacks have won 12 of their last 14 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Ketel Marte leads the Diamondbacks with 64 hits and 25 RBI, while Lourdes Gurriel Jr. and Corbin Carroll have combined for 124 hits and 62 RBI. Merrill Kelly gets the ball, and he is 7-3 with a 2.80 ERA and 77 strikeouts this season. This will be Kelly’s second career game against the Tigers.
Detroit Tigers Betting Preview
The Detroit Tigers have scored 5 runs in their last 3 games and 3 or fewer runs in 7 straight games. The Tigers have lost 6 straight games when scoring 3 or fewer runs. Riley Greene leads the Tigers with 60 hits and 18 RBI, while Spencer Torkelson and Javier Baez have combined for 98 hits and 53 RBI. Michael Lorenzen gets the ball, and he is 2-2 with a 3.21 ERA and 41 strikeouts this season. Lorenzen is 2-0 with a 0.71 ERA and 10 strikeouts in his career against the Diamondbacks.
The Diamondbacks are 6-1 in their last 7 road games and 8-2 in their last 10 overall. The Tigers are 39-84 in their last 123 Friday games and 0-5 in their last 5 overall. The under is 6-2 in Diamondbacks last 8 overall. The under is 5-1 in Tigers last 6 overall.
The Detroit Tigers haven't been able to score runs all week, and that likely doesn't change when going up against Merrill Kelly, a pitcher who has a 2.80 ERA and 1.08 WHIP. Michael Lorenzen has been solid in his own right, but the Tigers aren't providing much run support these days. Give me the Arizona Diamondbacks and the more than reasonable price on the road.
