Who will win tonight’s Tigers/Mariners MLB game against the spread?
Doc’s Sports Pick: Take the Tigers

Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Pick from Jimmy Boyd: May 31st 2017

Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals
MLB Pick: Royals -115 odds (May 31st 2017)

I like the value here with Kansas City as a short home favorite against the Tigers on Wednesday. The Royals come in off a 1-0 win on Tuesday, where they were able to knock off Detroit’s ace Justin Verlander. That’s a tough loss for the Tigers to swallow, who have been struggling of late with a 3-8 record over their last 11 games.

KC will send out Ian Kennedy, who is 0-4 with a 4.43 ERA in 8 starts, but he’s pitched much better than the numbers suggest. Kennedy has a very strong 1.149 WHIP and owns a 3.04 ERA and 0.972 WHIP in 4 home starts. Kennedy faced the Tigers 3 times last season and allowed just 4 earned runs in 18 1/3 innings. Detroit is countering with Matt Boyd, who is 1-3 with a 5.40 ERA and 2.057 WHIP in 5 road starts and faced the Royals twice last year, allowing 11 runs in 3 2/3 innings of work. Take Kansas City!

Tigers vs. White Sox MLB Betting Pick & Odds from Mike Lundin: May 27th 2017

Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox
MLB Betting Pick: Tigers -137 odds (May 27th 2017)

The Chicago White Sox put an 8-2 beating on the Detroit Tigers Friday night. I think we’ll see the Tigers get revenge in the first game of a double-header Saturday afternoon.

Michael Fulmer (5-2, 2.55 ERA) is scheduled to toe the slab for Detroit here in the early game. Fulmer has posted nine consecutive quality starts to open the season and pitched at least seven innings in four straight starts. He held the powerful Astros to one run in seven frames his last time out. Fulmer has gone a perfect 7-0 with a 2.12 ERA 12 career day starts.

The White Sox turn to Derek Holland (4-3, 2.47 ERA) who is coming off eight solid innings of one-run ball at Seattle, but he was tagged with seven runs (three earned) on six hits and four walks with three homers his last outing here at Guaranteed Rate Field. The Tigers are 5-1 in their last six road games vs. a left-handed starter.
The line says it all really. Tigers to win is the play.

Tigers vs. Angels MLB Betting Odds & Pick from Brandon Shively: May 14th 2017

Detroit Tigers vs. Los Angeles Angels
MLB Betting Pick: Detroit -126 odds (May 14th 2017)

The Detroit Tigers start Justin Verlander here. Verlander isn’t as dominant as he once was, but he is still a consistent above average starter. Alex Meyer starts for the Angels. Meyer is walking about 7 batters per nine innings this year. He puts himself in terrible situations because he just doesn’t have good enough control.

The Tigers certainly have some weaknesses, but this is still an excellent Tigers lineup and I don’t think Meyer will be able to get out of all the trouble he gets himself into against this Detroit lineup. Verlander has a good history pitching in this ballpark.

This is a fair price to lay on the much better pitcher and the better offensive team.
Take Detroit.

Chicago White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction from Tony Karpinski: April 30th 2017

Chicago White Sox vs. Detroit Tigers
MLB Prediction: White Sox -104 odds (April 30th 2017)

At this point, the Tigers’ bullpen has to be thrown in a trash can and start from ground zero. They are very bad. Dead arms, inexperienced arms, and more are a part of the bullpen disaster for the Tigers.

If Gonzalez keeps pitching like he has in April, there will be people taking note. He has an ERA of just 2.00, including a solid WHIP of 1.07. His last two starts have been impressive, as he’s allowed just 1 run in 16.1 inning pitched. Additionally, Gonzalez surrendered only 6 hits. More good news for Gonzalez against the Tigers, as he gave up 0 runs this past September against them in 2016.

As I noted earlier, Zimmermann has been struggling mightily. He enters with a 6.35 ERA overall, including a 8.10 ERA in his last three starts.

Get on the White Sox for our Sunday afternoon MLB pick.

Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Betting Pick from Matt Josephs: April 3rd 2017

Detroit Tigers vs. Chicago White Sox
MLB Betting Pick: Tigers -116 odds (April 3rd 2017)

Justin Verlander gets the call for the Tigers against the watered down White Sox. Chicago has not hidden the fact that this is a rebuilding year and may be the first of a few coming up. Verlander has been very good this Spring and has a 3.97 ERA in 39 career starts against the Sox. Over his last three starts against Chicago he has allowed just six runs and 16 hits striking out 28 while walking two. Melky Cabrera (7-36) and Todd Frazier (3-12) have struggled with the righty. Jose Quintana gets the call for the home team and who knows how many starts he’ll have for them before he’s dealt as well.

The Tigers have one more run in them before they could be sellers. The southpaw has a 4.08 ERA in 17 starts against Detroit. Miguel Cabrera (15-43), Ian Kinsler (14-47), Victor Martinez (17-39) and Justin Upton (5-14) have great numbers against him. The Tigers have the edge all around so I’m surprised at the short number. I’ll take it though on the road.
