New York Mets vs Detroit Tigers 5/4/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The New York Mets will go against the Detroit Tigers in MLB action in Comerica Park, MI, on Thursday, April 4, 2023, at 1:10 PM ET.


After a hectic winter in which numerous new players were acquired, the New York Mets are anticipated to once again contend for the NL East Division title and a World Series championship.


However, due to the team’s struggles due to numerous significant injuries, the Mets only played baseball at a level slightly above .500 thus far.


Max Scherzer and Justin Verlander returned after they had lost two of three to the Braves when they arrived in Detroit.


The Mets dropped to 16-15 on the year after losing both games in the doubleheader on Wednesday, 6-5 and 8-1.


It seems appropriate that Justin Verlander makes his first appearance on the mound in 2023 at the city where he spent the first 13 years of his career.


While guiding the Tigers to five postseason appearances, Verlander won the Cy Young Award and the AL Rookie of the Year in Detroit in 2011.


The American League Cy Young Award winner from 2022 is back after spending the first month of the season on the injured list. As he gets back into form, Verlander will probably be limited in the number of pitches he throws.


After sitting out the whole 2021 season, Verlander had an ERA of 1.75 and won 18 games in 2022 with only four defeats.


  • The total went OVER in 4 of the NY Mets’ last 6 matches.
  • The Mets are 2-8 SU in their last 10 matches.
  • The NY Mets are 3-9 SU in their last 12 matches against Detroit.

New York Mets vs Detroit Tigers Predictions 5/4/2023


After placing at the bottom of the AL Central standings in 2022, the Detroit Tigers are still struggling in 2023. Once more, the Tigers’ inability to score was a significant contributor to their problems.


The Tigers are 28th in batting average, 27th in home runs, and last in runs scored. They enter the series having lost three out of the first four games at home against the Orioles.


Eric Haase, who homered and knocked in six runs in each game of the doubleheader on Wednesday, helped the Tigers win both contests.


In the series finale, the Tigers will use veteran lefty Eduardo Rodriguez. With a respectable 2.21 ERA in six starts this year, Rodriguez is 2-2.


He pitched 36.2 innings and gave up just 25 hits. Rodriguez only walked seven times thus far compared to 30 strikeouts.


He made two starts at home and is 2-0 with a 0.66 ERA. In 13.2 innings thrown and only one run in his two outings at home, he gave up eight hits.


Rodriguez’s improved performance from the previous season may be credited to his control, a walk rate of 5.1% as opposed to 8.7% last season, and his aptitude for dodging hard-hit balls.


His big league career-to-date best hard-hit rate is 28%.


  • The total went OVER in 5 of the Tigers’ last 6 matches.
  • The total hung OVER in 4 of Detroit’s last 5 matches at home.
  • The Detroit Tigers are 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches at home against NY Mets.

New York Mets vs Detroit Tigers. The MLB pick for this game is the Detroit Tigers.


A day after a doubleheader, Verlander will probably only be allowed to throw a specific number of pitches, which may prove troublesome for the Mets.


The Mets bullpen, which is already overworked, will be used once again.


Rodriguez, the Tigers’ starting pitcher, was outstanding all season long, but especially so at home. In two starts, he only gave up one run, and his command is at an all-time high.


The Mets’ team batting average is just .231 against left-handed pitchers. The Detroit Tigers will win to a predicted score of 6-2.
