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.

MLB Betting Trends

Detroit

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.

Boston

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.

Prediction:

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
