You will have to lay a little cheese on the Tigers in this one, but with how much they need this game and how bad the Twins are, there is still value even with the -159 price for Wednesday night’s matchup. It also helps that Twins pitcher Tyler Duffy has been awful as of late and is even worse on the road with a plus 6 ERA.
Detroit went down in a heap on Tuesday night and as they are in the middle of a playoff chase, they need to get their head back above water in game three of the four game set against one of the worst teams in MLB.
I look for the Tigers to get at Duffy early and often in this one and the run line is a solid play as well. The Tigers bats rarely stay silent for two games in a row and this is the perfect spot for an offensive explosion
