Jackson wins in return to Detroit

Edwin Jackson threw 6 1/3 strong innings Friday night in his first start for Detroit since 2009 to pick up the win in a 5-2 victory.

MLB Betting Trends

Kansas City

The Royals are 2-12 in their last 14 games overall. Kansas City is 0-4 in the last four Montgomery starts.


The Tigers are 11-41 in their last 52 games overall. Detroit is 0-6 in the last six Turnbull home starts.


Betting on the Tigers to win a third straight game seems crazy, but the thing is they have the better starting pitcher on the mound and a couple of the young call-ups have injected a bit of life into the offense lately. Turnbull hasn't been as efficient as he was earlier in the season, but he faces a weak offense here and I think he'll have success. Go with Detroit to win a third straight game here.
