Tigers on fire
The Tigers have won five straight coming into tonight’s contest following a sweep of the White Sox in Chicago. Detroit is now 36-37 overall and 13-20 on the road. The Tigers are averaging 4.18 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.49 per contest on defense.
Matthew Boyd takes the mound for the Tigers this evening. He has started 13 games this season and has a 4-4 record with a 3.23 ERA and 1.09 WHIP. Boyd has 59 strikeouts and 28 walks over 75.1 innings of work this season.
Reds win on the road
The Reds were on a brief 5-game road trip last week where they went 3-2 before returning home tonight. Cincinnati is now 26-45 overall and 11-23 at home. The Reds are putting up 4.24 runs per game on offense while giving up 5.18 per game on defense.
Sal Romano gets the start for the Reds this evening. He has started 14 games this season and has a 3-7 record with a 5.67 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP. Romano has pitched a total of 73.0 innings this season and has 50 strikeouts with 31 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers have won Boyd’s last four starts and they have won six of their last seven games after a day off. They also have won five straight against a right-handed starter.
The Reds have lost four straight interleague home games and they are just 3-9 in their last 12 games following a win. They are also 11-29 in their last 40 home games.
The Tigers are on their best run of the season and they get to play another struggling team tonight. That should allow them to continue to win. Boyd has been rolling as well. I think he will be able to have a strong start against this Cincinnati lineup. Romano hasn’t looked good most of the year and I think the Tigers can manufacture some runs off him.
The Pick: Detroit Tigers +105
