Detroit Tigers vs. Tampa Bay Rays (7:10 PM ET)

Line: Detroit Tigers (-115) at Tampa Bay Rays (+105); total 7.0view these lines

[sc:MLB240banner ]The Detroit Tigers find themselves within arm’s reach of a wild card spot, and they will be capitalizing in a visit to Tampa Bay starting Max Scherzer (14-4, 2.98 ERA). The Detroit ace last pitched in eight scoreless innings while giving up just three hits at home against the Pittsburgh Pirates last Thursday. Scherzer has 196 strikeouts and only 46 walks over 169 innings this season and is 4-2 in seven career games versus the Rays with a 2.56 ERA.

However, the Detroit Tigers have struggled in scoring over their past three games as they were outscored 17-7 in a three-game series against the Seattle Mariners. On the other hand, Tampa Bay’s Chris Archer (8-6, 3.24 ERA) is on a roll of his own going 4-1 over seven starts since a 7-2 win over the Detroit Tigers on July 5. Archer most recently pitched in seven innings, surrendering just one earned run in a 10-1 road win against the Texas Rangers on August 13.

Writer’s Prediction

The Tampa Bay Rays take this one from the Detroit Tigers in a low-scoring affair. Take the total to go under 7.0.

Toronto Blue Jays vs. Milwaukee Brewers

Line: Toronto Blue Jays (+145) at Milwaukee Brewers (-160); total 8.5view these lines

Edwin Encarnacion

The Milwaukee Brewers will be hosting the Toronto Blue Jays on the heels of four-straight wins, three of those coming from a series sweep of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Brewers will be starting Mike Fiers (2-1, 1.29 ERA) who is fresh off a double digit strikeout performance against the Chicago Cubs on Thursday. Fiers struck out a career-high 14 over six scoreless innings, and tossed a scoreless inning in a relief appearance against the Blue Jays in 2012.

While the Milwaukee Brewers were building on their win column, the Toronto Blue Jays have racked up losses, going 4-11 in August. However, the Blue Jays may receive a spark in their offense when Edwin Encarnacion recorded a blast on Sunday after being reactivated from the disabled list on Friday. Just being 3 and a half games behind a wild card spot, expect the Blue Jays to put up a spirited affair.

Writer’s Prediction

The Milwaukee Brewers (-160) extend their winning streak at the expense of the Toronto Blue Jays.
