Detroit vs Minnesota: Struggling Tigers Visit Surprising Twins

Detroit vs Minnesota: Struggling Tigers Visit Surprising Twins

Detroit Tigers: Have dug into a pretty deep hole

Sitting with a mediocre 43-41 record, it’s looking like Detroit will head into the MLB All Star break in third place in the American League Central. While they have remained inconsistent since, the Motor City Cats can point to a 5-14 run from May 17 to June 5 as the cause of their tumble in the standings. That said, a sweep of Minnesota, during this four-game series prior to the break, would move the Tigers a half game ahead of the second place Twins. Detroit's 382 runs for is fifth best in the Majors.

Minnesota Twins: Continue to battle Houston as 2015 MLB Shock Jocks

Count us in the crowd that's surprised by the first half Minnesota has produced. It wasn’t supposed to be like this as the Twins opened the season with a bloated +4000 money line price to win the American League Pennant. Sitting with a 46-39 record, Minnesota currently trails the Kansas City Royals by five games in the AL Central. We still see some smoke and mirrors at work in Minnesota as they are 13th overall with 357 runs for and 16th with 344 runs against. Can the magic carry over to the second half?

Tigers vs Twins MLB Prediction: We get a pitching mismatch as Detroit ace LHP David Price (8-2 ERA 2.47) faces Minnesota RHP Mike Pelfry (5-5 ERA 3.94) in the battle on the bump tonight. Over his last eight starts, Price has allowed eleven earned runs over 57.1 innings pitched. On the flip side, Pelfry has given up 23 runs over 22.1 innings during his last five starts. Tagging Detroit as road chalk, Bovada bookmakers see Price being right here and we agree. Give us the Cats with a 500 unit wager on the money line price posted at Bovada.
