Boston @ Detroit

Amazing when you see the line drop from the opening number of -150 on the Las Vegas Moneyline in this game. Norris gets his second start for the Tigers tonight, and matched up against Joe Kelly of the Red Sox, I see it as a total mismatch from a pitching perspective, as Kelly’s season long ERA is over 6. Detroit is coming off a confidence building series win against mighty Kansas City and I look for them to win this series over the weekend against the Red Sox.

Neither team has been lighting up at the plate although Detroit managed 8 runs last night, so pitching will be at a premium in this series, and the team with the better starter is going to have a clear advantage in each game. Add in the fact that the Tigers went 1-2 in a 3 game series 2 weeks ago with the Red Sox, and you have the makings of some revenge tonight for the Tigers.

TRENDS : Boston is 1-9 their last 10 road games. Boston is 2-10 their last 12 games as an underdog. Boston is 4-10 their last 14 games in Detroit. I like our chances at a very cheap number tonight.
