MLB Betting Trends

Detroit

The Tigers have won six of their last eight series openers and five straight after allowing two runs or less in their previous game.

Boston

Boston is just 1-4 in Wright’s last five starts, but they have won his last five starts against winning teams. They also are 41-17 in their last 58 against a losing team.

Prediction:

I don’t love the lopsided odds given the pitching situation, but the Red Sox have a more reliable bullpen and the more consistent offense. I don’t see either starter getting terribly deep into this game, but the Sox have the better bench and have the record they have for a reason.

 

The Pick: Boston Red Sox -190
