MLB Baseball: Monday, August 19, 2019 8:10 PM EST (Minute Maid Park)
Line & Odds: Tigers (+175), Astros (-205) - Over/Under 10
The Astros and Tigers start a four-game series in Houston Monday night. Houston swept Detroit in a three-game series back in May.
Houston comes into this series after snapping its five-game losing streak with a win over the A's on Sunday. The Astros are still favorites to win the AL West with a seven and a half game lead over the A's. This series against Detroit kicks off a 10-game homestand which the 2017 champs hope to take advantage of.
It has been yet another disappointing season for the Tigers which has gone 9-27 since the All-Star break. The team's .306 win percentage is the worst in Major League Baseball. Detroit has not made the playoffs since 2014 and is on pace to match its 119-loss 2003 record. Veteran Miguel Cabrera posts the best batting average on the team at a .278 clip.
