The Detroit Tigers had their five-game winning streak snapped yesterday and look to get back to .500, heading north of the border to face Toronto. The Blue Jays will give the raised thread sphere to Ricky Romero (10-7, 3.50 ERA) who is trying to match a career high fourth straight win. Romero has 144 strikeouts and has permitted 154 base hits in 167 innings of work.

Detroit will send Max Scherzer (9-9, 3.73) to the mound, whom has really been in a great groove since being sent to Triple-A earlier this season. Scherzer has 1.72 ERA in 12 starts since June 20 and could supply the Tigers with a road edge in specific situation.

Look to Play On underdogs on the +1.5 run line (Money Line =-190 to +165), against a starting pitcher whose gives up 5.5 or less hits a start, when their own starting hurler has ERA less than 3.00 over his last 10 games. This is highly profitable system with 116-36 record since 2006.
