Matthew Boyd gets the start for the Tigers today this afternoon. He has started 10 games this season and has a 3-4 record with a 3.00 ERA and 1.07 WHIP. Boyd has pitched 57.0 innings and has 45 strikeouts with 20 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Blue Jays are just 3-14 in their last 17 games against a left-handed starter and they have also lost seven straight Saturday games.
The Tigers have won six of their last seven at home against a left-handed starter. They have also won seven of their last 10 against AL East opponents.
While Haap has been very good on the mound for Toronto, I don’t like the Jays hitting right now. Boyd has been pretty good in his own right and he will be at home with a surging roster behind him. The Tigers have seen their pitching numbers continue to improve while Toronto has been struggling at the plate.
The Pick: Detroit Tigers +125
