Detroit Tigers vs Kansas City Royals. The MLB pick for this game is the Detroit Tigers. Given that Greinke is on the hill, the Royals appear to have the advantage in this matchup regarding the mound, but it doesn’t make a difference.


Boyd did succeed in winning his last game, but his season ERA is still above six. In the series’ first game, we witnessed the Tigers’ bullpen perform admirably while the Royals faltered when the game was on the line.


Greinke threw well against the Tigers in the past, but there is not much confidence in the Kansas City bats in this situation since they need to make opposing pitchers shudder more.


Detroit will likely find a way to win this game and secure the series’ triumph. The Detroit Tigers will succeed to a predicted score of 6-2.
