Tigers shutout in opener
The Tigers were blanked at the plate on Tuesday in a 6-0 loss to the Red Sox. Detroit is now 29-33 this season with a 9-19 record on the road. The Tigers are putting up 4.33 runs per game this season while allowing 4.59 per contest.
Blaine Hardy gets the start for the Tigers on Wednesday. He has started four games and appeared in eight this season. Hardy carries a 2-0 record with a 2.77 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. He has pitched 26.0 innings and has 20 strikeouts with eight walks.
Red Sox win third straight
The Boston Red Sox have won three straight games thanks to Tuesday’s shutout victory. The Sox have also won six of their last eight. Boston is now 42-19 overall and 21-8 at home. The Red Sox are putting up 5.33 runs per game this season while allowing 3.83 per game.
Eduardo Rodriguez gets the start for the Red Sox on Wednesday. He is 6-1 on the season through 11 starts and has a 3.88 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. Rodriguez has pitched 60.1 innings this season and has 72 strikeouts with 20 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers are 4-0 in their last four games against a left-handed starter, but just 11-26 in their last 37 games against a winning team and 15-38 in their last 53 road games.
The Red Sox have won 13 of Rodriguez’ last 16 starts overall and six of his last seven home starts. They are also 11-4 in their last 15 against AL Central teams.
The Red Sox just have too much for the Tigers to deal with. While Hardy has been solid so far on the mound, he is still a converted reliever that doesn’t go deep into games often. Rodriguez has led Boston to a lot of wins and he should be able to do that today against an average Detroit lineup.
The Pick: Boston Red Sox -220
