Gamblers can also bet on the game's runline with the current odds sitting at +140 for the Orioles -1.5 runs and -160 for the Tigers +1.5. This information is subject to change, however, so be sure to check out our MLB Public Betting Page for updated figures on the game. The bad news is that the Tigers really need to see improvement from Zimmermann. Unfortunately, the 8-6 loss gave the Tigers a fifth straight decision in the loss column. Detroit is just 4-9 on the season and 1-5 at home.

The bats have been almost non-existent in the early goings, and the Orioles have now scored two runs or fewer in seven of their sixteen contests so far this season.

Francisco Liriano is taking the mound for the Tigers today to make his third start. Still, his ERA is 2.13 and his other number are fantastic as well, with a 0.95 WHIP and batters hitting only.167 against him.

Cobb was tagged for seven earned runs on ten hits over just 3 2/3 innings during his Orioles debut at Fenway, and will be looking to shake it off against a slumping Tigers offense.

Baltimore isn't coming in with much momentum either. This could be a rough three games to watch. They also have dropped five of their last six games. However, he's allowed at least five hits in each of his starts this season and his ERA is nearing 7.


The Orioles have hit nine home runs in their last 10 games.

In game one, the O's will be led by Andrew Cashner. He is 1-1 through three starts with a 2.50 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP.

Liriano ended up on the wrong end of a pitchers' duel during his last start versus Cleveland and took the loss despite allowing just two runs on three hits over six innings. Morton (3-0) whiffed eight, walked none and retired 15 straight at one point. Detroit enter Tuesday's contest having last played on Friday.

Zimmermann was originally tabbed to pitch Game 1 in this series but with the recent postponements, his start is pushed back. Liriano, his last time out, turned in a winning effort against Cleveland (6 IP, 2 ER, 3 H) but took the loss because the Detroit offense could not garner any success against reigning AL Cy Young victor Corey Kluber. His ERA this season is 8.18, and he has struggled for most of his career as a Tiger. I think the Tigers will find a way to produce some runs on Cashner in a low-scoring game in the cold.
