The Detroit Tigers and the Minnesota Twins meet again tonight in Detroit. Get MLB odds at Just Bet sportsbook.
The Tigers have lost the first two games of the series vs. the Twins and on Tuesday it was largely the fault of the pitching staff who was subpar to say the least. One thing the Tigers have going for them tonight is that Justin Verlander will be on the hill. Verlander has allowed just 92 hits in 123 innings of work good enough for a 2.69 ERA, and he is still widely considered the best pitcher in baseball today.
The Twins are bouncing back from a rough start this season and are enjoying playing the role of spoiler right now. They scored eight runs on 10 hits as a team and will look to continue their winning ways tonight. They will send Brian Duensing to the mound who has pitched out of the bullpen most of the year.
Detroit is 7-1 in their last eight game three of a series, 1-6 in their last seven games as a favorite, and 44-14 in Verlander’s last 58 home starts. Minnesota is 5-0 in their last five games overall, 9-3 in their last 12 games as a road underdog, and 0-5 in Duensing’s last five road starts. Detroit is 6-0 in Verlander’s last six starts against Minnesota.
Verlander and the Tigers are very heavily favored in this game and rightfully so. The Twins have won the first two, but we see the Tigers winning tonight and will take them on the moneyline at online sportsbooks.
