Vegas Play of the Day: Detroit Tigers at Seattle Mariners

Here’s the latest installment of the Play of the Day, which uses odds from the South Point. Our three sports writers started with a $10,000 bankroll — fictional, of course.

Detroit Tigers at Seattle Mariners over 7 runs: $440 to win $400

Anytime you can get Justin Verlander at plus money, it’s an OK side to be on. But when looking for today’s Play of the Day, I liked the trend of runs scored in Tigers’ games more than I like just their side.

Detroit has gone over in 10 of its last 11 games, with most of those lines set at more than today’s seven. A lot of those have been the Tigers getting blown out, which I would bet against today, but a few were victories, too.

Bottom line, if you see a trend that you like, go ahead and try to ride it for a little while. That’s what I’m doing here.

Standings: Bern (27-19-1, $11,450), Keefer (23-26, $8,588), Brewer (18-27-3, $4,450)
