MLB Picks: Detroit Tigers vs. Seattle Mariners
The Detroit Tigers lead the majors in hitting with a .307 batting average, which is important to consider when making your MLB picks Tuesday, as they prepare to open up a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners at Safeco Field.
Sports bettors will find that the Tigers are -165 road favorites in the pro baseball odds (courtesy of SBR Forum), while the total stands at 7.5 in the market.
Let's take a closer look at this American League matchup from a betting perspective, while offering up a prediction on the total along the way.
The Detroit Tigers have yet to win three games in a row this season, and are coming off a 10-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics as -131 road favorites last Sunday.
Sports bettors will find that the Tigers are 1-8 in Doug Fister's last nine starts as a road favorite.
The Seattle Mariners have alternated wins and losses over their last four games, and are coming off a 4-3 victory over the Texas Rangers as +124 home underdogs last Sunday.
Over the last two-plus seasons, the Mariners are 4-8 off a one-run win over a division rival, with the UNDER going 9-3 in that situation.
I'm going to recommend that readers play the total as one of their MLB picks Tuesday night, as the UNDER is 9-2-1 in the Detroit Tigers' last 12 games with Doug Fister listed as a road favorite.
