Predictions For Betting On Athletics Tigers – Athletics Could Knock Off One More Contender This Week In Detroit

Posted by Dale "Skip" Lalonde on 9/16/2012 6:33:16 PM

After a strong two months of baseball the Oakland Athletics haven’t faded the way that many online sports betting experts predicted they would have late in the season, and the result is the second-best record in the American League behind only the Texas Rangers. While the Athletics’ divisional hopes are still alive, they are also holding down the top AL Wild Card spot and that is something the Detroit Tigers want from them. The Tigers haven’t been nearly as good over the last two months and are still six games back a Wild Card spot with time ticking down and a three-game set against Oakland this week.

The Tigers have appreciated what Max Scherzer has brought all season, and he has brought his best stuff of late with a 6-0 record in his last six decisions and an ERA that has fallen from 4.72 to 3.77 over that span. Detroit will need Scherzer to be at his best as they try and solve the Athletics’ quality pitching, beginning in the first game with 24-year old AJ Griffin on the mound for Oakland. Griffin is 6-0 with a 1.94 ERA on the year, and after pitching eight shutout innings against the Los Angeles Angels in his last start there is no doubt his stuff is for real.

One of the biggest reasons for the Athletics’ success has been the fact that new pitchers keep excelling when they get their shot, and for as good as Griffin has been, Brett Anderson is another 24-year old who has been brilliant. Anderson is 4-1 with a 1.93 ERA on the season, although he is coming off his worst start after giving up five earned runs in just 6.2 innings of work in a 6-0 loss to the Cleveland Indians. That won’t be good enough in this game either with Justin Verlander set to get the start for the Tigers. Verlander has alternated between solid starts and awful ones with 2, 8, 1, 7 earned runs allowed in his last four online sportsbook starts, and if you continue the pattern it shows the next start should be a shutout win.

Anibal Sanchez will get the call for Detroit to close out the series, and after losing three straight games with the recently acquired righty on the mound despite that he has only given up a combined four earned runs over that span it is time for the Tigers to get him some run support. That shouldn’t be too tough of a problem with Tommy Milone set to get the start for Oakland, just two outings removed from his worst start of the season. It has been an up and down year for Milone so far, and if Sanchez can stay cool and stick to his best stuff he should have no problem helping the Tigers finish off the season and take two of three in a crucial betting series that has major Wild Card implications.
