Tigers end six-game skid in walk-off fashion

MLB Betting Trends
The Phillies are 6-0 in their last six Tuesday games. Philadelphia is 6-1 in the last seven Nola road starts.
The Tigers are 18-39 in their last 57 interleague games. Detroit is 2-7 in the last nine Boyd interleague starts.
While Detroit is sending Boyd to the mound for what could be his final start before being traded, he has been let down by shoddy defense and a lack of run support. He isn't likely to get much support today either as Nola should mow down a weak Tigers offense. The line seems like it should be even more in favor of Philly. Take advantage.
