Detroit Tigers vs. Boston Red Sox Preview

The Tigers have lost 3 straight and are only 4-6 in their last 10 games and they are 5.5 games back of the red hot White Sox in the AL Central. MLB lines have the Red Sox as the home favorites tonight with a total of 9 runs.

In yesterday’s game between these 2 teams the Red Sox beat the Tigers 6-4.

This season the Tigers have an O/U record of 22-27 and a run-line W/L record of 16-34 and the Red Sox have an O/U record of 30-19 with a run-line W/L record of 24-26.

On the season the Red Sox are 13-13 at home and the Tigers are 12-15 on the road.

On the hill for the Red Sox tonight is Josh Beckett 4-4, 4.15 ERA, who as solid in his last start giving up 2 earned runs in 7 innings, but got no run support in a no decision facing the Rays. Max Scherzer 4-3, 5.67 ERA gets the nod for the Tigers and in his last start he gave up 3 earned runs in 5 innings in a win over the Twins. 


In Beckett’s last 3 starts he is 2-0 with a 1.25 ERA and Scherzer is 0-2 with an 11.81 ERA in 4 starts versus Boston.

Beckett was shelled earlier this season facing the Tigers giving up 5 HR in a 10-0 loss. In the next game the Red Sox beat up Scherzer tagging him for 7 runs in only 2 innings of work.

Scherzer really has to be careful facing David Ortiz, who is swinging a hot bat and is 7 for 12 with 2 HR and 5 RBIs in the series. On top of that Big Papi is 6 for 8 with 2 HR off Scherzer.

The Red Sox offense ranks 3rd in the Majors in runs scored and they have scored 19 runs in the first 3 games of this series.

In some betting trends for this AL Match up the Tigers are 1-4 in their last 5 games as a road underdog, 4-1 in Scherzer’s last 5 road starts, and they have an Over record of 5-1 in their last 6 games.

The Red Sox are 9-2 in their last 11 home games, 12-4 in Beckett’s last 16 home starts, and they have an Over record of 5-2 in their last 7 games.

Jason’s Pick; Have to go with the Red Sox in this game since their offense is playing well and I think Beckett will have another solid outing.
