The Minnesota Twins and the Detroit Tigers will face-off in the opener of their series from Detroit tonight. MLB odds can be had a Top Bet sportsbook.
The Tigers won the final two games of their road trip and look to enter the All-Star break on a positive note. They are just 5-5 in their last 10 games and just 17 – 18 at home this season. They sit however just three games back in the division and will look to Doug Fister tonight to get this series off to a good start. Fister is pitching to a 3.91 ERA in 50 innings of work this season.
The Twins have not had a lot to cheer about in the past two years, but they actually head into Detroit playing very well. They sit 8 1/2 games and back in the AL Central and technically they’re still not out of it with plenty of season to play. Joe Mauer has rebounded nicely this year and is actually hitting .324 and was named an all-star. Liam Hendricks will take the mound for the twins tonight as he is pitching to a 6.82 ERA in just 34 innings of work.
We really think the Tigers bats can do damage against Hendricks and the Twins are coming in on a little bit of role of a role so we expect them to score some runs too. Give us the over in total run scored for this game at sports books.
