Detroit at Toronto
Sunday 08/30 01:05 PM Eastern
1 unit on Detroit +205 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 3.05) RESULT: LOSS
Toronto is all the rage with this power offense, but is also getting overvalued. Blue Jays lefty Mark Buehrle has allowed 9 runs his last 10 innings (two starts), giving up 14 hits, 1 walk, and 3 homers. The Blue Jays are 0-4 in his last four Sunday starts and he faces a powerful Detroit offense that is eighth in baseball in runs scored, second in on-base percentage, and third in slugging. Victor Martinez (28-for-78, four homers, and 15 RBIs) and Miguel Cabrera (10-for-31) have each fared well against Buehrle. Detroit has 11-game winner Alfredo Simon on the mound, and the Tigers are 5-2 in his last seven starts, plus 4-1 when he faces the AL East. Detroit is 9-4 after losing the first two games of a series, so grab the talented and undervalued dog. Play the Tigers.
