Toronto Blue Jays vs. Detroit Tigers Tuesday Free Pick: The first game on the docket on Tuesday afternoon comes to us from Comerica Park, where the Detroit Tigers and the Toronto Blue Jays do battle for the first time since last August. These two teams both have high expectations for this season, but neither got off to a thrilling start to the campaign. This early start time at 1:08 p.m. ET is one that you shouldn’t miss, as Detroit is favored by a -123 margin.

The Tigers have won four in a row against the Blue Jays dating back to last year, but these aren’t nearly the same Jays that we are talking about that they’ll face in 2013. Toronto has the opportunity to get away from the Rogers Centre for the first time this season, and that might really help out a team that has to be feeling a ton of pressure. To make matters even better in this one, Brandon Morrow is one of those guys that we love to back in spite of the fact that he isn’t one of the “name” pitchers in this rotation. He allowed just one run in six frames against the Tribe six days ago, and over the course of his last three starts, the righty has surrendered just two runs in 21 innings. Anibal Sanchez isn’t nearly as good as some of the pitchers are in the rest of this Detroit rotation either. We think that he is due to be lit up, and the Tigers are due to fall back just a bit after dominating the Yankees for two out of three games here at Comerica Park over the weekend. Getting plus odds on Toronto is a heck of a steal. Blue Jays vs. Tigers Free Pick for April 9th: Back the Toronto Blue Jays +116
