Miguel Cabrera TigersOakland Athletics vs. Detroit Tigers Game 3 MLB Pick: The American League Divisional Series continues on Monday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. ET at Comerica Park, where the Oakland Athletics are going to try to snare a second straight win in an early game against the Detroit Tigers.

With a lot of build-in advantages on their side, we aren’t all that shocked that the Tigers are the -155 favorites on the MLB playoff odds. The ‘total’ is set at 7.5, and though that number is a bit high as we see it, we are far more interested in backing the hosts.

It’s not all that often that we see West Coast teams stuck playing in these early games, and we think that Major League Baseball made a major injustice here by starting this game at 1:00 instead of the other ALDS game between the Red Sox and the Rays. Look back at those early start times this year that teams have played on the East Coast that were coming from the West Coast. Heck the series that these two teams played at Comerica Park in August, Oakland won three games and lost the Sunday gameā€¦ played at 1:00 in the afternoon. It feels like a 10:00 a.m. game back home, and it’s really not fair when you think about it to be stuck with a game at that time.

On top of that, the Tigers probably have the better team, the better starting pitcher, and the home field advantage on their side. RHP Jarrod Parker pitched terribly in the two games that he pitched in this series last year, and he has never really had a successful outing in the postseason in his career. RHP Anibal Sanchez meanwhile, was unhittable at home, holding batters down to a .217 batting average, and he went 8-3 in those games. Sanchez should shine, and the Detroit offense should finally wake up and score some runs for the righty. If that’s the case, Oakland is probably going down and will be in a lot of trouble.
