Texas Rangers MascotDetroit Tigers vs. Texas Rangers Sunday Free MLB Pick: Sunday Night Baseball betting action heads to the Lone Star State this weekend for a clash between the Texas Rangers and the Detroit Tigers. Texas is going to look to win the third of four games in this series to extend its already massive lead in the AL West. Detroit is just trying to salvage a split of these four games, but it is a +105 underdog to get the job done on the MLB odds in this soiree.

We really like the way that both of these teams are pitching right now. The Tigers only have eight runs scored in three games in this series. Both Justin Verlander and Anibal Sanchez were beaten up by the Texas offense, but aside from that, the rest of the pitchers in this series have done well. That’s why we think this is going to be a slightly lower scoring game than the 9 that is on the board suggests. Derek Holland, Sunday night’s starter, could quite possibly be the best starter for the Rangers this year, and that includes what we have seen out of Yu Darvish. Holland has an ERA below 2.00 at home this season. Meanwhile, the man that is going to be dueling on the other side of the bump is Doug Fister, who has just eight earned runs allowed in four road starts this season. These two pitchers have only combined to allow 6.0 runs per game between them in their eight respective starts this year, and that’s about what we think we’re going to see in this game. Go with the ‘under’ for your Sunday Night Baseball picks.
