Tigers fall again

The Tigers were edged on Friday night, losing 5-4 for their fourth consecutive loss. Detroit is now 50-73 overall and 18-43 on the road. The Tigers are putting up 3.85 runs per game this season while allowing 4.71 runs per contest.

Ryan Carpenter is getting the start for the Tigers tonight. He is making his fourth start for the Tigers and has an 0-1 record, a 6.39 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP. Carpenter has pitched just 12.2 innings this year and has seven strikeouts with three walks.

MLB Betting Trends


The Tigers have lost 43 of their last 58 road games and 36 of their last 51 overall.


The Twins have won nine of their last 11 against teams with a losing record. They are also 13-3 in their last 16 home games against a team with a losing record.


Despite the struggles and inexperience of both starting pitchers in this game, the Tigers are just a mess on the road. They can’t seem to figure things out and find any rhythm on the road. Stewart already has lost to the Tigers, but I think he will be find at home and he will get the run support he needs from his hitters against Carpenter.


The Pick: Minnesota Twins -175
