Detroit Tigers vs. Seattle Mariners
We have been repeatedly backing Michael Fulmer during his tremendous run pitching for the Detroit Tigers who have amassed a dominant 15-2 record in 17 games started by Fulmer this season and that is a track record worth riding on Monday night as the impressive righty takes the mound for the Tigers against the Seattle Mariners. Betting markets opened with Detroit -108 as shown on the SBR's MLB betting odds board. While value will probably continue shifting, you might be looking to act quickly and add Tigers to your ticket.

Fulmer has yielded 3 runs or less in 9 of his last 10 starts and has given up just 28 earned runs in 104 innings of work this season for a 2.42 ERA overall. He'll be up against Hisashi Iwakuma who will be on the mound for the Mariners and although he's been pitching solid for the most part in recent outings, he's had a rough time against the Tigers going 1-3 in his last 4 starts against Detroit who have hit him to the tune of 17 runs scored in 22.2 innings against Iwakuma over those four games. Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Ian Kinsler are all hitting .375 or better in 10+ AB's in their careers against Iwakuma and I expect Detroit to be the team with the greater success at the plate in this game. The Tigers bullpen has been very good of late with a fantastic 2.25 ERA during their last 10 games which stands in stark contrast to the Mariners who have a 6.27 ERA with their bullpen during that span so if the game is close late, it should be an edge to Detroit in a game I expect the Tigers to win, which is why have added them to my free MLB picks for Monday.
