Looking to follow up a profitable Saturday (8-6, including one outsiders at $3!) with some more winners on Sunday.

Detroit Tigers at Cleveland Indians

Tip: Tigers WIN ($2.10)

Justin Verlander (14-8, 3.33 ERA) hasn’t had a great season against the Indians, a loser in all three of his starts so far. In fact, Verlander has more losses to the Indians than any other team in the majors, a total of 21 across his career. He’s not alone though, Detroit has sent everyone at Cleveland this year and pretty much all of them have suffered the same outcome with the Indians holding a 12-1 record this season against Detroit. That trend continued Saturday in the opener as Cleveland routed Detroit 11-4. In an attempt to keep the dominance going, Cleveland sends Carlos Carrasco (11-8, 3.32 ERA) to the mound after lasting just 3.2 innings in his last start. He allowed eight hits and four earned runs in this short outing, purely dominated. It’s easy to see that Cleveland have dominated this matchup all season and Verlander hasn’t been sharp but the Wolf has a feeling this one will tip in the favour of the Tigers. It’s rare you’ll see Verlander the underdog and the Tigers are offering excellent value straight up. Don’t be shy!

Oakland A’s at Texas Rangers

Tip: Rangers WIN ($1.40)

Raul Alcantara (0-1, 7.27 ERA) hasn’t found the big leagues much fun to date, pitching a disaster three innings in his debut where he allowed five runs. He did come out a little better in his second start, limiting the Mariners to two runs in 5.2 innings but still didn’t look that comfortable. Yu Darvish (5-4, 3.28 ERA) on the other hand has had quite a solid season. Darvish will now follow Hamels in the rotation, a deliberate ploy by the Rangers to solid their rotation heading in to the post season. While Darvish has had a good season, his career numbers against Oakland don’t read as well. He’s 2-8 with a 4.54 ERA in 12 outings against them but 1-0 with a 2.77 ERA in two starts against them this season. The Rangers are 6-1 in his last 7 starts and 6-1 in his last 7 starts after 7 days or more rest. Oakland come in to this one 3-13 in their last 16 against the AL West and we’re looking for that trend to continue here. Darvish to dominate.
