MLB Baseball Betting – Scherzer and Gray Duel it Out as A’s Host Tigers

It is always an interesting proposition for BetAnySports customers when you have two legitimate contenders for the Cy Young Award battling it out in a game. We have that situation on Tuesday night, as Max Scherzer of the Detroit Tigers, who won last year’s award, faces off against Sonny Gray of the Oakland Athletics in MLB betting action that is scheduled to get underway at 10:10 PM ET at the Coliseum in Oakland.

Detroit Tigers vs. Boston Red Sox – 2013 ALCS Game 6

This game also pits two of the American League’s division leaders against each other, so it’s quite possible it is a preview of a playoff meeting. Of course, these teams met in last year’s AL Divisional Series, with the Tigers prevailing in five games. Gray started that decisive fifth game for the A’s against the Tigers.

Detroit comes into this game on a “down note,” having lost three consecutive games. The Tigers have also lost their last four contests on the road. Oakland recently dropped four games in a row, with their bats going silent, before coming back with an offensive explosion against the Tigers on Monday.

Even with the current losing streak, Detroit has the largest lead of any first-place team at the moment, as the AL Central front-running Tigers are five games ahead of the Chicago White Sox and 5 1/2 games ahead of both Kansas City and Minnesota. Oakland, at 31-20, is still 2.5 games ahead of the Los Angeles Angels in the American League West.

In the MLB baseball odds that have been posted on this game by the people at BetAnySports, the Athletics, with Gray, are favored:

Detroit Tigers (Scherzer – R) +125

Under 6.5 Runs +100

Scherzer blew away the competition last season in winning the Cy Young. he was undefeated through his first twelve starts and at one point was 19-1 – only the third MLB pitcher to do that. His numbers were astounding when all was said and done: a 21-3 record and 2.90 ERA, with a WHIP ratio that was below 1.00. No one else won 20 games. MLB baseball bettors may recall that he was going to oppose Gray in Game 5 of last year’s ALDS, but was inserted into a relief role in the previous game, when the Tigers were at a critical juncture, and won that contest. Currently he is 6-1 with a 2.59 ERA, and that is even after he was shelled for seven runs in seven innings by Cleveland last time out.

As BetAnySports customers may know, Gray is the only qualified pitcher in the American League with an ERA below the 2.00 mark (1.99). He went eight innings in his last appearance, and the Oakland bullpen blew it in a 5-2 loss in eleven innings against Tampa Bay. The A’s have won seven of their last eight games at the Coliseum, while Detroit has dropped seven of its last eight overall.
