Game: Oakland Athletics (961) @ Detroit Tigers (962)
Time: Thursday 04/28 1:05 PM Eastern
Pick: Oakland +118 (moneyline)
Detroit got the win yesterday, but this is still a flawed team with a losing home record. They are ranked #19 in OBP, #15 in errors and #15 in team ERA. One of the weak spots goes here with starter Anibal Sanchez (7.00 ERA). He has yet to make it through six innings and was ripped for seven runs and nine hits over two innings in a loss to Cleveland on Saturday. The Tigers are 14-29 when their opponent allows five runs or more in their previous game. Oakland is 8-4 on the road and 10-3 away against a right-handed starter. Starter Chris Bassitt is throwing well, with the team winning two of his last three starts allowing two and one run while going seven innings in the wins. With the Oakland offense 7-3 against righty starters, grab the visiting dog and play on Oakland.
