PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public is backing the Tigers today. Detroit is currently getting 53 percent of the wagers for this game as the home favorite against Kansas City.

KEY INJURIES

The Royals have first baseman Lucas Duda listed on the injury report for today’s game. He is dealing with a tight hamstring and had to leave Monday’s game. Duda missed Tuesday’s game is questionable to play today. Detroit doesn’t have anyone listed on the injury report.

BETTING STRATEGIES

The Royals were able to pick up a 1-0 win over the Tigers on Tuesday in a game that featured just eight hits combined. Jakob Junis pitched seven scoreless innings for the Royals and allowed just three hits with six strikeouts to get the win while Matthew Boyd took the loss despite allowing just one run and four hits over six innings for the Tigers.

Jorge Soler had a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning bring in the lone run of the game, who was Cheslor Cuthbert. The Tigers were without a single extra-base hit in the game while Cuthbert had the lone double for the Royals.

Wind should play a factor in this game. If blowing in, runs will be hard to come by in an already big park. If blowing out, it could provide a little power boost for both. Duffy had a poor outing to open the season, but he’s still a more reliable pitcher than Norris. The Tigers have already been held scoreless twice in this young season, so I think Duffy will get back to form today.
