MLB Betting Trends

Philadelphia

The Phillies are 6-0 in their last six Tuesday games. Philadelphia is 6-1 in the last seven Nola road starts.

Detroit

The Tigers are 18-39 in their last 57 interleague games. Detroit is 2-7 in the last nine Boyd interleague starts.

Prediction:

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.
