MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins have lost four of Gibson’s last five road starts, but they are 20-7 in his last 27 road starts against a losing team.

Detroit

The Tigers have won four of their last five at home, but have lost eight straight after scoring five runs or more in their previous game.

Prediction:

The Tigers got the win on Friday and I think they can do it again today. Liriano has allowed just four earned runs over his last four starts. The Tigers seem to hit the ball a little better at home as well. Gibson has given up nine runs over his last two starts and has a 4.50 ERA against the Tigers this year.

 

The Pick: Detroit Tigers +125
