Sports handicapper Ian Cameron provides an MLB Early Lines Report for the games taking place on Sunday, August 14.

Detroit Tigers vs Texas Rangers  
The Detroit Tigers finally lost a start made by Michael Fulmer in his last outing against the Seattle Mariners as they fell 3-0 but not by any fault of their very promising young starter as Fulmer was sharp again holding the Mariners to 2 runs in 7 innings. I expect him to pitch well here on Sunday afternoon against the Texas Rangers. He’s never faced the Rangers before so he should have a bit of an advantage in that regard and it’s worth noting the Tigers are 7-0 in Fulmer’s 7 daytime starts this season and he has a 2.12 ERA in those games. 

Texas will counter with A.J. Griffin who has not been as sharp lately as the innings start to mount for him as he’s surrendered at least 5 runs in three of his last six starts and his track record against Detroit isn’t overly spectacular as he’s yielded 14 runs in 17.1 innings pitched against the Tigers over a span of four starts since 2012. Griffin’s daytime ERA pales in comparison to that of Michael Fulmer as Griffin has a 5.60 ERA in 6 afternoon starts and Texas is only 3-3 in those games. Detroit has been slumping of late but this is maybe their best chance to get back in the win column and break their current losing skid and I expect them to take advantage of it with a win. Detroit will be my MLB pick for early betting value.
