Detroit at Chicago

1.5 units on Detroit +190 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 4.35) RESULT: WIN
Detroit is in Wrigley Field with a strong offense at #8 in baseball in runs scored. They have a good young arm going in 22-year-old Daniel Norris, with the team 3-1 his last four starts. Norris has excellent stuff and a very high ceiling, off a 7-4 win over Kansas City. The Tigers are 12-3 in their last 15 interleague games vs. a left-handed starter and face Jon Lester, who is just 6-6 at home. These Cubs are 2-9 in interleague home games against a team with a losing record. Detroit is 11-2 in the last 13 meetings with Chicago, including 8-1 at Wrigley Field. Back Detroit.
