PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION

The public is backing Detroit today. The Tigers are currently getting 51 percent of the wagers for this game at Chicago.

KEY INJURIES

Chicago has nobody new listed on the injury report for today’s game. Detroit has its big bat, Miguel Cabrera, listed as questionable due to tightness in his hip flexor. Victor Reyes has missed the last three games with a laceration on his forearm.

BETTING STRATEGIES

The Tigers opened the series on Thursday with a 9-7 victory in 10 innings. Detroit had to score three runs in the ninth to force extra innings and then put up two in the 10th. Victor Martinez drove in a pair of runs and had three hits in the win while Nicholas Castellanos also had three hits for Detroit. Niko Goodrum had two hits, including a home run in the ninth, while driving in two.

Jordan Zimmerman allowed six runs over 4.1 innings for the Tigers, but was saved by his bullpen, which allowed just one run and two hits over 5.2 innings of work. James Shields allowed just three runs over five innings, but the Chicago pen gave up six runs over five innings. Yolmer Sanchez had three hits and three RBI to lead the White Sox at the plate.

Chicago had a promising start to the year, but has lost three of four since and today it faces a strong young pitcher in Fulmer. Detroit is going to have to ride Fulmer a lot this year and that will be the case today as well. Giolito definitely doesn’t matchup and the Sox bullpen looked really shaky on Thursday.
