Tigers edged again

The Tigers suffered a 1-run loss to the Mariners in Seattle on Sunday for their third straight loss. Two of them were by a run. Detroit is now 20-26 overall and 8-16 on the road. The Tigers are averaging 4.33 runs per game this season while allowing 4.72 per contest.

Blaine Hardy is getting the start for the Tigers tonight. He has started one game and appeared in five this season. Hardy has a 3.38 ERA with 1.50 WHIP and two holds. He has pitched eight innings this season and has three walks with seven strikeouts.

Twins struggling as of late

Minnesota is coming off a 3-1 win over the Brewers on Sunday, which snapped a 3-game losing streak. The Twins have also dropped five of their last seven games. Minnesota is now 19-23 overall and 9-11 at home. The Twins are putting up 4.21 runs per game this season while allowing 4.71 per contest.

Jose Berrios gets the start for the Twins tonight. He has started nine games this year and has a 4-4 record. Berrios has a 4.05 ERA with a 0.96 WHIP. He has pitched 53.1 innings and has 50 strikeouts with 10 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Detroit

The Tigers are just 3-10 in their last 13 Monday games and 1-4 in their last five against a team with a losing record.

Minnesota

The Twins have won 11 of Berrios’ last 13 home starts and his last four starts against AL Central opponents. However, Minnesota has lost nine of its last 11 series openers.

Prediction:

The Tigers have been a tough out lately, but I think they will struggle at the plate when they take on Berrios tonight. Minnesota has been the better team in recent weeks and they should be able to defend their home turf with one of their top pitchers on the mound.

 

The Pick: Minnesota Twins +185
