Tigers win two straight

The Detroit Tigers have won back-to-back games after an 11-game losing streak, besting Toronto again on Monday in 10 innings. Detroit is now 38-48 overall and 15-29 on the road. The Tigers are averaging just 4.02 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.64 per game on the mound.

Michael Fulmer is getting the start for the Tigers this evening. He has started 16 games this season and has a 3-7 record with a 4.20 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Fulmer has pitched a total of 94.1 innings and has racked up 80 strikeouts with 30 walks.

Cubs on fire at the plate

The Cubs come into today’s game on a four-game winning streak, scoring a total of 46 runs during the four games. While they also did allow 30 runs, the Cubs still won. Chicago is now 47-35 overall and 24-14 at home. Chicago is putting up 5.12 runs per game on the year while allowing 3.91 per contest.

Kyle Hendricks is on the mound for the Cubs this afternoon. He has started 16 times in 2018 and has a 5-8 record with a 4.21 ERA and a 1.23 WHIP. Hendricks has pitched 92.0 innings this year and has 70 strikeouts and 29 walks.

MLB Betting Trends


The Tigers are just 21-46 in their last 67 road games and 0-4 in their last four against NL Central opponents.


The Cubs have won five straight at home and they are 13-3 in their last 16 interleague home games against a losing team.


Hendricks has been struggling lately, but the Cubs bats are on fire and I think they will be able to continue to produce runs against Fulmer, who has really not gotten into his form this year. While the Tigers may produce some runs as well, they won’t be able to win a shootout with this Chicago lineup.


The Pick: Chicago Cubs -205
