The Tigers charge into this Thursday night pairing flashing a 29-34 record that ranks them 2nd in the AL Central. Just 4 ½ games behind the division-leading Cleveland Indians, the Tigers aren’t too far away from claiming the division’s No. 1 spot. However, they’re 1-4 record in their last 5 matchups certainly isn’t helping them out. And since they’ve already lost two against Boston, most of the MLB baseball betting community will be betting against them this evening. To help turn things around, the Tigers will be sending Matthew Boyd to the mound this evening. Boyd is 3-4 on the season with a 3.23 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.
Players to Watch: Nicholas Castellanos (6 HR, 33 RBI, .333 BA), Jeimer Candelario (9 HR, 26 RBI, .267 BA), and Leonys Martin (7 HR, 20 RBI, .254 BA).
Boston Red Sox
The Sox slide into this evening’s contest with a 43-19 record that ranks them 1st in the AL East. With a slight 1-game lead over the second-seeded New York Yankees, the Red Sox need to maintain their current momentum lest risk losing the divisional lead. Since Boston enters this evening’s contest riding a 4-game winnings streak, it’s looking like they’re handling the pressure rather well. The Red Sox will be sending Jalen Beeks to the mound this evening. Meeks is coming up from the minors where he played for the Pawtucket Red Sox. No doubt the 24-year old is looking to have a great start to his professional career.
Players to Watch: Mookie Betts (17 HR, 37 RBI, .359 BA), JD Martinez (20 HR, 52 RBI, .317 BA), and Andrew Benintendi (10 HR, 43 RBI, .296 BA).
