Cobb got zero run support last night and the Giants lost 3-0.

DETROIT TIGERS +1.5 -114

The Rays have lost 6 of their last 7 versus teams with a winning % of below .400. This is something they must change if they want to get a chance to make the playoffs. Also, the last 6 of their last 7 road games versus teams with a losing record. Spring will be a popular DFS option in cash games today while Hutchison should be owned ~1-3% in GPPs. Yeah, he's not good but he's coming into this game with some momentum after allowing 1 ER versus Toronto in his last game. He threw 68 pitches in 5 innings. That was his best game of the season. The Tigers will need 4 decent innings from him and then they can count on their BP that have been lights out in their last 10 games however regressed a little in their last 5 games. The Rays have only 3 wins in their last 10 and this game can be closer than we all think. The Rays have a BA average of under .200 versus RHP in their last 5 games.
