The Detroit Tigers (3-5) will battle the Houston Astros (6-3) in the opening game of a series at the Minute Maid Park in Houston on Monday, April 12, 2021, at 8:10 PM ET. After losing the first two matches, Detroit fell by three runs against the Cleveland Indians to complete the sweep on Sunday’s finale. In losing three games in a row, the Tigers managed to gain just five runs and Detroit doesn’t have a pitching staff that could carry a defective offense. Akil Baddoo took much of the offense for the Tigers this season after hitting two home runs while driving in 7 RBIs. Starter Jose Urena recorded three hits, two earned, five walks, and four strikeouts in 4.2 innings pitched.

Casey Mize (0-0, 2.25 ERA) will be climbing up the bump to start the opening game for Detroit on Monday. In his first game this season playing against the Minnesota Twins, Mize gave up five hits, one earned, two walks, and four strikeouts in pitching for 4.0 innings. The tigers are 16-38 in its last 54 matches during Game 1 of a series and 55-134 in its last 189 outings overall. Detroit is 11-30 in its last 41 contests on a Monday and 21-57 in its last 78 games on the road.

On the side of the Astros, Houston earned a 6-2 win over the Athletics on Thursday but surrendered their last two games of the series scoring 2-6 (Friday) and 3-7 (Saturday).

Kyle Tucker was the best player for the Astros hitting four home runs while driving in 11 RBIs. Starter Jose Urquidy pitched for 6.0 innings with four earned on seven hits and seven strikeouts in Saturday’s match.

The Houston Astros will be sending Zack Greinke (1-0, 1.38 ERA) to the pitcher’s mound to start the game against the Tigers on Monday. Greinke has two starts to date posting eight hits, two earned, one walk, and eight strikeouts in 13.0 innings pitched.

Houston is 42-10 in its last 52 outings after a day-off and 61-21 in its last 82 matches in Game 1 of a series. The Astros is 61-27 in its last 88 contests at home and 43-15 in its last 58 games against an opponent in the AL Central Division.

Detroit Tigers vs. Houston Astros. The MLB Pick for this game is Houston -1.5. The Astros are still the stronger team here winning 6 of their last 9 outings. Though Mize had a solid start this season, the right-handed thrower had a limited appearance on the bump due to pitch count. The only good news is that the righty’s velocity increases over the year. As for Zack Greinke, the righty has a pretty explosive two starts to date. This will be a battle between two great starters but Greinke and Houston’s troops have the advantage at home. The predicted score, Houston will win at 8-1.
