The Detroit Tigers travel to Minnesota to take on the Twins in what is an important series to say the least for the Tigers. All odds for all games can be found at Top Bet sportsbook.
The Twins have had a very rough season, but still have a chance to revel in the role of spoiler. They have been led on offense once again by Joe Mauer who is competing for the batting crown as he is hitting .323 on the season. While the Twins pitching staff has been pretty bad overall, Scott Diamond has pitched pretty well this season. He will be on the mound tonight and be looking to improve on is 3.64 ERA he has accumulated in 160 innings of work.
The good news for the Tigers at this point is that they control their own destiny. Considering how they played most of the season we think they’re probably pretty happy about this fact. The bad part is they will not play another game at home and will have to win the division being road warriors. In this important game for Detroit they will send Drew Smyly to the mound who has been average in his 93 innings of work this season posting a 4.24 ERA.
This is an interesting game here and conventional wisdom would say there is no way the Tigers lose to the Twins in this spot. However with the odds you are getting with Minnesota at home and the fact they have a better picture on the mound we will take Minnesota as a value moneyline underdog at home at the best sportsbooks online.
