The Houston Astros and the Detroit Tigers will both be trying to pick up a win on Sunday when they battle at Comerica Park.

The Astros will pin their hopes on the pitching of right hander Lance McCullers Jr. in this game. McCullers Jr. has a 7-2 record and a 3.67 ERA this season.

McCullers Jr.’s opponent in this one will be Justin Verlander. The Tigers right hander has a 4.50 ERA to go along with a 5-7 record this season.

McCullers won his first start upon coming off the disabled list with five innings of one-run ball at Seattle, but he is winless in four subsequent outings while yielding a combined 20 runs – all Houston losses. He has failed to get through five innings in each of his last three turns, but blanked Detroit on one hit over five innings on May 23. He has allowed only two homers in 10 starts away from home.

Verlander is coming off a pair of seven-inning no-decisions and has permitted a combined eight earned runs in his last four outings – three of them quality starts. The 34-year-old posted double-digit victories in 10 of the last 11 seasons, a mark in jeopardy due to his latest drought. He has never lost to Houston in eight career starts (4-0, 2.83 ERA) but has been tormented by Jose Altuve, who is 7-for-13 against him.

Oddsmakers currently have the Astros listed as 128-moneyline favorites versus the Tigers, while the game’s total is sitting at 9½.

Justin Verlander’s name has been bandied about leading up to Monday’s trade deadline, but the veteran right-hander is scheduled to take the mound Sunday in the finale of a three-game series versus the visiting Houston Astros. Verlander is trying to avoid a winless July against a team that rocked him for six runs over 5 2/3 innings in late May.

With a number of pitchers expected to change destinations in the next two days, Verlander may wind up staying put due to a contract that will pay him $28 million in each of the next two seasons. Detroit erased a three-run deficit and snapped a four-game skid with Saturday’s 5-3 victory as shortstop Jose Iglesias collected a pair of doubles and two RBIs. Houston, which is running away with the best record in the American League, is 5-3 entering the final stop of its nine-game road trip. Evan Gattis swatted his fourth homer and recorded his fourth multiple-hit game in the last nine for the Astros, who will send Lance McCullers Jr. to the mound to face Verlander.

Detroit won its last outing, a 5-3 result against the Astros on July 29. Bettors who backed the Tigers at 101 on the moneyline won on the day, and the total score (8) sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Astros were a 5-3 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Tigers. That made winners of bettors who got Detroit at 101 on the moneyline, while the total score (8) was good news for UNDER bettors.
