MLB Betting Trends
The Red Sox are 6-0 in the last six Price starts on Sundays. Boston is 6-1 in its last seven games versus the AL Central.
The Tigers are 14-41 in their last 55 home games. Detroit is 0-6 in its last six Sunday games.
Nope. Not betting on the Tigers today with Soto on the mound followed by a fatigued bullpen. Price has been very good lately aside from one poor start and he should get plenty of run support. Take the favorites and strongly consider the runline again.
