Money Line: -157.00 Oakland (Home)
The A's lost six straight to start the season, but have since won five of six. They host the Tigers tonight, and I like Oakland in Game 1.
Sean Manaea will toe the slab for Oakland, and he's coming off a solid start. Manaea (0-1, 5.06 ERA) allowed one run on six hits over six innings in a 6-2 win at Houston his last time out.
The Tigers hand the ball to Tarik Skubal, who was hammered in his last start. Skubal (0-1, 7.71 ERA) allowed six runs on five hits and three walks in four innings in an 11-3 loss at Cleveland his last time out.
The Tigers are 1-7 in the last eight meetings in Oakland, and they are 5-21 in the last 26 head to head meetings.
