Detroit Tigers vs St. Louis Cardinals. The MLB pick for this game is the Detroit Tigers. Three of the Tigers’ previous five contests ended in victories and two of their last three on the road.


They scored 17 runs in their past three games thanks to their strong offensive play.


Since they hit the ball well against left-handers this season and Montgomery did not pitch well at home this year, allowing nine runs in two starts, expect them to play well offensively in this game.


Since St. Louis has one of the worst bullpens in the league, they will struggle to contain Detroit’s hot bats. He gave up six runs in each of his last three appearances against the Tigers.


The Cardinals dropped eight of their last nine contests, including four of five at home. Only eight runs were scored in the last four matches due to their offensive struggles.


Boyd pitched well on the road, giving up four runs in two starts, but their offensive troubles will likely persist in this game.


As St. Louis failed to score a run in three of Montgomery’s last four starts, anticipate the Tigers to restrain their offense.


He gave up one run in his lone start against the Cardinals. Detroit is a good choice to cover the money line. The Detroit Tigers will win to a predicted score of 7-5.
