Tigers ends losing streak
The Detroit Tigers finally put an end to their 11-game losing streak on Sunday by earning a 9-1 victory. Detroit is now 37-48 overall and 14-29 on the road. The Tigers are averaging just 4.04 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.67 per game on the mound.
Mike Fiers gets the start for the Tigers this afternoon. He is 5-5 through 15 starts this season and has a 4.04 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP. Fiers has pitched a total of 84.2 innings and has 63 strikeouts with 19 walks this season.
Blue Jays slip up
The Blue Jays lost for the third time in five games with Sunday’s loss. The Blue Jays are now 39-44 overall and 22-21 at home. The Blue Jays are putting up 4.41 runs per game on offense this year while allowing 4.88 per contest.
Ryan Borucki gets his second start for the Toronto Blue Jays this afternoon. His first start was against the Astros, a 7-0 loss. He gave up just two runs over six innings, but walked four with three strikeouts.
MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers are just 2-8 in their last 10 games on fieldturf and 5-13 in their last 18 Monday games.
The Blue Jays have won 10 of their last 12 home games and seven of their last nine Monday games. They also have won six of their last seven at home against a losing team.
The Tigers hit the ball well on Sunday and that led them to a win. I don’t trust Detroit to consistently hit on the road and their pitching can also be quiet inconsistent. Borucki had a promising first start against the Astros on the road and I think he can build on that at home against this Detroit lineup.
The Pick: Toronto Blue Jays -150
