The Tigers are expected to send Armando Galarraga to the mound in this MLB bet matchup while the A’s go with Gio Gonzalez.
MLB betting on the Tigers has been more successful than on the A’s this season. This is the second of a three-game series between the two teams. Galarraga is 4-7 on the season with a 5.65 ERA while Gonzalez is 0-1 with a 8.03 ERA. Galarraga finally won a game last Thursday with six innings against the Cubs. He had lost seven straight MLB betting decisions before that win. He did not pitch well against the A’s the last time he faced them as he gave up five runs and four hits in just one inning as MLB bet numbers tell us.
Gonzalez went only 3 2/3 innings in his last start against the Giants as MLB betting statistics show. He allowed 10 hits and walked two that start which was the first one of the season for him.
The A’s have done quite well at home against the Tigers in this MLB betting matchup. They had won 7 of the last 10 before this MLB bet series began. Looking at the MLB betting total we see that the over/under was 10-10 in the last 20 meetings between the two teams. Three of the last four at Oakland have gone over the MLB betting total.
The Tigers have been competitive on the road this season in online betting, just below the .500 mark. Combined with their strong home record, Detroit is at the top of the American League Central. The Tigers have a good offense and a solid pitching staff. They rank right around the Top 10 in runs scored and in runs allowed as MLB betting numbers show.
Oakland has not been very good this season at home or on the road in online betting. A .500 record at home is just not going to get it done and that is basically where the A’s are at in MLB betting. Oakland has a weak offense and a marginal pitching staff. Matt Holliday has been a bust and overall the A’s have been a major disappointment in MLB betting so far this season.
