Cleveland Guardians vs Detroit Tigers Game 1 7/4/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Cleveland Guardians will go against the Detroit Tigers in MLB Game 1 action in Comerica Park, MI, on Monday, July 4, 2022, at 1:10 PM ET.


Cleveland won 18 matches in June to gain distance in the AL Central, but they lost their first two matches in July and were swept by the Yankees in a doubleheader on Saturday at home.


The Guardians were three matches behind the Twins in the fight for first place in the AL Central heading into Sunday. Josh Naylor (run, RBI) and Franmil Reyes (run, RBI) both had two hits to pace the Guardians’ offense in the first game of the doubleheader.


Prior to Cleveland’s collapse, Naylor and Reyes hit back-to-back solo home runs in the second inning (his 10th and fifth, respectively).


In this game, Zach Plesac makes his fifteenth start of the year for the Guardians. He enters the game with a record of 2-5, a 3.86 ERA, a 1.223 WHIP, 20 walks, and 57 strikeouts in 79.1 innings pitched.


Tuesday afternoon’s opening game of a doubleheader at home against the Twins resulted in a no-decision for Plesac. He pitched six innings in a match the Guardians finally won 3-2, giving no runs on 3 hits, 3 walks, and 7 strikeouts.


  • The total went UNDER in 5 of Cleveland’s last 7 matches. 
  • The Guardians are 4-8 SU in their previous 12 matches. 
  • Cleveland is 8-2 SU in their last 10 matches on the road.

Cleveland Guardians vs Detroit Tigers Game 1 Predictions 7/4/2022


Before battling for two in the ninth to earn the walk-off victory over the Royals on Saturday, Detroit already dropped the first game of their series with them.


The Twins were 12.5 games ahead of the Tigers for first place in the AL Central heading into Sunday. On Saturday, Riley Greene (3 runs, RBI) and Victor Reyes (run, RBI) each contributed two singles to the triumph.


In the bottom of the ninth, back-to-back jacks by Reyes (his first) and Greene (his first) gave the Tigers the victory.


The Tigers recalled Garrett Hill from the minors to make his main league debut in this game since Rony Garcia is headed to the injured list.


This year, he made a total of 15 starts in the minor levels, with records of 4-2, 3.23 ERA, 1.077 WHIP, 25 walks, and 98 strikeouts in 69.2 innings pitched.


Before getting promoted, Hill had a 2-0 record with a 2.25 ERA, a 0.906 WHIP, 10 walks, and 52 strikeouts in 32 innings across seven appearances with Double-A Erie of the Eastern League.


  • The Tigers are 6-13 SU in their previous 19 matches. 
  • Detroit is 3-8 SU in their last 11 matches at home. 
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Detroit’s last 6 matches at home against Cleveland.

Cleveland Guardians vs Detroit Tigers. The MLB pick for this game is the Cleveland Guardians. Both sides will find this one difficult for various reasons.


As this is Cleveland’s third doubleheader in a week, their pitching rotation is in total chaos. Due to the postponed Friday night game, the Guardians played one game against the Twins on Tuesday and one against the Yankees on Saturday. This will put Cleveland in a situation where Plesac will need to pitch well.


While Alex Faedo will start the other game of the doubleheader, Detroit will be dealing with a player making his major league debut.


The Tigers had trouble scoring runs throughout the whole season, and Plesac was pitching well recently, but the victories did not come.


Give the Guardians the advantage as they win the first game of this doubleheader to begin the series. The Cleveland Guardians will win to a predicted score of 4-2.
