Tigers lose fourth straight

The Tigers dropped their fourth straight on Monday in a 4-2 loss to the Twins. It was the third straight game that the Tigers scored just two runs. Detroit is now 20-27 overall and 8-17 on the road. The Tigers are averaging 4.28 runs per game this season while allowing 4.70 per contest.

Matthew Boyd gets the start for the Tigers tonight. He has appeared in eight games this year and has a 2-3 record with a 3.19 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP. Boyd has pitched 48 innings this season and has 41 strikeouts with 13 walks.

Minnesota wins back-to-back games

Minnesota has won its last two games following the 4-2 win on Monday. Minnesota is now 20-23 overall and 10-11 at home. The Twins are putting up 4.21 runs per game this season while allowing 4.65 per contest.

Lance Lynn will be on the mound for the Tigers tonight. He has started eight games this year and has a 1-4 record with a 7.47 ERA and a 2.04 WHIP. Lynn has pitched 37.1 innings this season and has 41 strikeouts with 29 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Detroit

The Tigers have lost five of their last six against a team with a losing record. They also have lost five of their last 18 starts when Boyd is on the mound.

Minnesota

The Twins have won four straight divisional games and 11 of their last 14 home games against a left-handed starter.

Prediction:

I don’t feel great about Lynn taking the mound tonight, as he has really struggled. However, I think Minnesota can over come that with its offense against this Detroit bullpen. The Tigers have been struggling at maintaining leads and their bats have been somewhat quiet lately.

 

The Pick: Minnesota Twins -155
