There's some spot value Tuesday on the Tigers with insurance (-120) as they face a Tampa Bay club that used nine pitchers in Monday's wild 10-9 victory. Rays "starter" Ryne Stanek pitched an inning Monday, and Tampa's pitching depth could be an issue if Detroit does some early damage. Tigers starter Matthew Boyd has struggled of late, but he beat the Rays on May 1, giving up one run on seven hits.

The Nationals should have the edge Monday against the Pirates in this battle of two struggling clubs. Pittsburgh starter Ivan Nova allowed five homers and seven runs in his most recent outing. Against Washington, Nova is 1-2 with a 4.91 ERA in four career starts, including a 9-3 road loss on May 2 when he gave up eight runs. Spot starter Jefry Rodriguez hasn't been terribly impressive yet for the Nationals, but look for them to support him with plenty of offense in this matchup.

There's some spot value Wednesday on the Pirates in the finale against the Mets as both of these struggling and desperate clubs look to claim the series. New York starter Zack Wheeler is 0-5 with a 5.13 ERA in 10 starts since his last victory, which came April 29. Pittsburgh's Ivan Nova allowed three hits over eight scoreless innings in his last start but ended up with a no-decision. The Mets are also coming off an emotional extra-innings win Tuesday. the Pirates have the better team and a situational edge here.
