Twins vs. Tigers DFS MLB Picks, Betting Line – Anibal Sanchez vs. Ricky Nolasco

Gambling911.com has your daily fantasy MLB picks for Anibal Sanchez and Ricky Nolasco along with the day’s betting line. 

Tigers RH Anibal Sanchez (2014: 8-5, 3.43) $8.3K has had some degree of success vs. Minnesota over the years so it shouldn’t be any surprise that Detroit was listed as a -200 favorite in this one.  Trevor Plouffe is the only Minnesota player with a home run off Sanchez.

In games where Sanchez started last season, however, Detroit gave up 11, 9 and 5 runs, respectively. 

To say infielder Twins Brian Dozier $4.4K had incredible success versus Sanchez the last time facing him would be a huge understatement.  A home run, two singles and an error resulted in runs. 

The Twins RH Ricky Nolasco (2014: 6-12, 5.38 ERA) $6.1K was 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA in three starts versus Detroit last season with a victory Sept. 27 when he allowed two runs in six innings.  Victor Martinez is 5-for-7 against Nolasco.

The Tigers were held to just three runs in each of Nolasco’s three starts against them last season. 

Nick Castellanos $3.7K – The Detroit third baseman performed especially well against Nolasco in the last matchup between these two teams when he started.  Castellanos enjoyed a home run, a sacrifice that allowed for a run and a ground out that allowed for a run.  In fact, Castellanos was responsible for all three of Detroit’s only three runs against the Twins in the last meeting with Nolasco as a starter.
