The Detroit Tigers have had a surprisingly decent season here in 2021 and they will look to finish the season strong as they take on the Minnesota Twins in Minneapolis this Wednesday.
The Tigers come in here off the back of a 5-3 run and there really are a bunch of nice pieces in place for this team heading into next season. They have not been able to score a ton of runs this year, but their team batting average is .241 so there is some reason to be optimistic.
The batting lineup has been okay, but the real surprise of this team has no doubt been the pitching staff and the rise of two of their rookie starters Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal who have both flashed some serious upside.
Casey Mize gets the call here and has a very respectable 3.63 ERA and a 7-8 record and he will give the Tigers a chance to spring this upset at +147 odds, as they have been undervalued when Mize or Skubal have been on the hill.
The Minnesota Twins may have had the worst season of any team in all of baseball compared to the offseason expectations which were set out for these guys, as they were seen as having one of the elite offenses in the league with many pundits believing they would win this division.
The batting lineup has still been decent ranking middle of the pack, but still nowhere close to what was expected, and the real reason this team’s record is as bad as it is is the pitching which ranks 26th overall with a 4.84 team ERA.
Michael Pineda has not been all that consistent this year, but he really has come around toward the end of the season putting up a 3.45 ERA in his last 7 games. If we look even more short term he has also only given up 4 earned runs in his last 3 starts, so he is lined up to have a solid start here.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
These are two pitchers who I could see having nice outings here, as I have been a fan of Casey Mize’s stuff from the start of the season and Michael Pineda has been on a tear and gets a great matchup at home against this Tigers batting lineup.
We are also getting a nice number here at 9, as I was thinking this would be at 8 or 8.5 so do believe we are getting some solid line value here.
