Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
I look for the Tigers to be sharp in this game. They had a chance to win game 1, but could not hold on to it.
It is weird to say it, but the Tigers have been the better team so far this year. The Twins have more talent, but they have not lived up to it.
Wily Peralta will look to bounce back and pitch a solid game against the Twins. The Tigers can definitely hit around J.A. Happ.
I will go with the Tigers as +140 road dogs.
