MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins have won seven of their last eight games following a day off. They are also just 2-6 in their last eight against a left-handed starter.

Detroit

The Tigers have won six straight after a day off. They are also 6-2 in their last eight games following a loss. Detroit has also won five of its last seven against losing teams.

Prediction:

The Tigers have been good coming off their day off and Blaine Hardy has been good on the mound outside of his last start against the Red Sox. Minnesota is not Boston at the plate. Odorizzi has been in a funk on the mound as well, but his has lasted his last three starts. I think Detroit will be able to get to him and pick up the victory.

 

The Pick: Detroit Tigers -105
