Detroit (Fulmer) at Los Angeles (Shoemaker) -115 O/U 8
LA's Matt Shoemaker has always been a tricky handicap. When he's bad, he's one of the worst starters in baseball. When he's good -- like he's been on late -- he typical offers pretty good value. Thanks to a plus splitter, Shoemaker has been missing bats like crazy with 23 strikeouts and 48 (!) swinging strikes over his last two starts against Baltimore and Houston. Detroit's Michael Fulmer is also is good form having allowed only 1 earned run over his last two outings. And what's impressive about Fulmer is his overall numbers (34 IP, 36Ks, 3.97 ERA) were produced despite five of his six starts coming on the highway which for a rookie, can be a difficult task. With two right-handed starters and two right-hand heavy lineups -- as well as the potential for shadows given the funky 4 pm PT start -- this sets up well for a lower scoring game. Play it under.
