San Francisco Giants vs Detroit Tigers 4/14/2023 Analysis, Picks and Tips

The San Francisco Giants will be hitting the road again for a weekend series against the Detroit Tigers. Struggling in the early stages of the 2023 season, the Giants have only managed to win five of their first 12 games. After a 2-4 homestand, which included losing two out of three games to the Dodgers, the Giants will try to bounce back from Wednesday night’s 10-5 loss to the Dodgers despite taking an early 3-0 lead.

On Friday night’s game, the Giants will start left-hander Sean Manaea, who will be making his second start of the season. In his two appearances this season, Manaea has pitched a total of eight innings, giving up five hits and four runs. Manaea struggled on the road last season, recording a 2-6 record with a 6.16 ERA. The Giants will be hoping for a better outing from Manaea as they look to turn things around. The Tigers will counter with Joey Wentz, who has yet to win a game this season, with an 0-2 record and a 10.29 ERA.

In his last start against the Royals, Manaea pitched well, allowing just a run and striking out eight batters despite a 6-5 home loss. As he takes the mound in this game, the Giants will be counting on him to deliver a solid performance against the struggling Tigers and give their team a much-needed boost.

  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of the Giants’ last 5 games on the road against Detroit.
  • San Francisco is 4-9 SU in their last 13 games with an opponent in the American League.
  • The Giants are 4-11 SU in their last 15 games with a team in the AL Central Division.

San Francisco Giants vs Detroit Tigers 4/14/2023 Analysis, Picks and Tips

The Detroit Tigers have stumbled out of the gate in the early stages of the 2023 MLB season and currently occupy the basement of the AL Central with a woeful 2-9 record. The team’s losing streak has now extended to six games as they prepare to face the Toronto Blue Jays in the series finale. Following a tough extra-inning loss on Wednesday, the Tigers managed to bounce back on Thursday with a 3-1 victory thanks to the strong pitching performance of starter Spencer Turnbull.

Looking to continue their momentum, Detroit will send left-hander Joey Wentz to the mound for Friday’s game. However, Wentz has struggled in his first two starts of the season, dropping both outings. In his first game against Boston, he was rocked for 14 runs in just 1.2 innings, and in his second outing, he allowed three runs in a 5-1 loss to Tampa Bay. Wentz has relied heavily on contact pitching so far this season, only striking out three batters while issuing six walks.

  • The total stayed UNDER in 5 of the Tigers’ last 5 games at home with the Giants.
  • Detroit is 8-4 SU in their last 12 games against an opponent in the National League.
  • The total has gone OVER in 6 of the Detroit Tigers’ last 9 games played in April.
