Boston Red Sox vs Detroit Tigers Predictions 8/5/2021

 

At 52-57, Detroit ranks third place in the AL Central. With a win against Boston on Tuesday, the Tigers carried on playing well against postseason contenders in what was an encouraging year for a Detroit team that was predicted to be one of the weakest in the MLB. The team’s biggest flaw is an unreliable bullpen, but Detroit relievers threw 4.1 scoreless innings in the series opener.

 

Tarik Skubal is one of those potential young starters, and he’ll take the field on Thursday trying to improve on his season’s 6-10 record, 4.53 ERA, and 117 strikeouts in 105.1 innings. Last Friday, the 24-year-old was defeated by the Baltimore Orioles, permitting four runs on 7 hits and a single walk in 5.2 innings while striking out 4 batters.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Detroit’s last 6 matches.

  • The total went OVER in 7 of Detroit’s last 10 matches against Boston.

  • The total went UNDER in 6 of Detroit’s last 6 matches at home.

Boston Red Sox vs Detroit Tigers. The MLB pick for this game is the Detroit Tigers. The Tigers are on a 16-5 run at Comerica Park and are nearly a must-bet at home at this stage, as it continues to dominate against presumably more successful teams at plus odds. For nearly 3 months, the Tigers are a lucrative team with a winning record, and Skubal will guide them to another upset victory here. The Detroit Tigers will win to a predicted score of 7-4.
