The Detroit Tigers are on the road this afternoon in Major League Baseball action when they take on the Baltimore Orioles. The game is scheduled for a 1:35 p.m. start time and it will be televised live on MLB.tv as well as local in both markets. Currently the odds for the game have the Orioles favored to pick up the victory at home.
Today will be the opening start for Daniel Norris as a Detroit Tiger. Norris was the main prospect piece sent back to the Tigers when they sold off David Price's services to the highest bidder. Toronto was very active on the trade deadline front, also picking up Troy Tulowitzki for their team's win-now model. While there are some new faces joining the team in Toronto, the Jays believe the veterans they picked up won't have a problem fitting in just fine.
Baltimore didn't do anything spectacular at the deadline, but did pick up a pretty solid outfielder in Gerardo Parra from Milwaukee. He will give the Orioles a nice option in the outfield and today will hit in the second spot behind Manny Machado. This Orioles team should have no problem knocking Norris around the park. They hit lefties fairly well (.260) and obviously prefer playing in their home park than on the road.
Norris has a lot of pressure on himself, even if they Tigers aren't putting it on him just yet. He's going to get boxed around today by an Orioles team that will be looking to take three out of four from the struggling Tigers.

Oakland Raiders: 2015 NFL Free Picks & Betting Odds
Vegas betting expert Steve Fezzik doesn’t expect the bad situation in Oakland to get much better this season. This AFC West team may have some improvements in terms of personnel, but Jack Del Rio is the latest in a carousel of ever-changing mediocre coaches, and Fezzik doesn’t expect he is the guy to turn this team around. He also thinks people are overstating Derek Carr’s abilities at quarterback, as he may do well in the fourth quarter, but his numbers are padded with garbage time performance.
