The Tigers are heading to the game here with a 37-55 record overall. However, on the road the Tigers are sitting on a dismal 14-31 record on the year. Heading into the All-Star break the Tigers ended up going 1-4. The last game was a 10-0 loss to the Cleveland Guardians.

The Tigers have allowed the opponents to hit at a clip of .245 with 678 strikeouts and 277 walks.

Detroit has been shaky on the starting pitching and to make matters even worse the Tigers have not declared who will be the starting pitcher in the game here. Javier Baez is the hitter for Detroit with the power game and run with 9 homers and 35 RBIs. The average hitter for Detroit is Miguel Cabrera at .287.

The Oakland Athletics are coming to the game with a 32-61 record overall. When playing at home the Athletics have been horrible with an 11-31 home record. The last 5 games heading to the All-Star break seen Oakland go 3-2. The last game was a 4-3 win over the Houston Astros.

Oakland has relied on Seth Brown for most of the run production with 10 homers and 38 RBIs on the year. Sean Murphy is the leader for the average for Oakland with an average of only .241. Zach Logue is the pitcher going to the mound for Oakland. This season Logue has posted a 3-4 record and a 5.16 ERA and a 1.45 WHIP.

Tigers at Athletics Pick: Oakland Athletics +110, Under 7.5

I have to admit this is a game that I am really not looking forward to and then throw in the fact that it is a double header and it will be very easy to see why I am dreading this game. Neither team is playing good on the year and the one thing that Oakland has going for them is the control over the season series, but neither team will light up the scoreboard on the day.
