The Detroit Tigers will play the Minnesota Twins in an early game on Thursday.  The Wednesday night game turned into a high scoring match as the Tigers beat the Twins 9-4. Detroit got home runs from M. Cabrera (28) and J. Upton (16). The Twins were able to get a couple of home runs for themselves with B. Dozier (30) and R. Grossman (9) each hitting one. The Twins bullpen got a workout with Duffey only going three innings. An overworked bullpen and a crappy starter going against a Tigers team that can hit home runs and all I can say is thank you.

Tigers vs Twins 8-25-16 Prediction:

Why is Jose Berrios still pitching in the big leagues? I really don’t care, in fact I hope he stays in the rotation. The money line when he starts is 2-6 with a negative -$265. That is if you bet on this guy. But, it gets better if you are playing totals when he starts. The over is 6-0-2 and in large part because of his crappy pitching. Get this, in 32 innings pitched he has a 9.28 ERA but in his last three starts it gets worse. He has lasted only 11 innings and has an ERA of 10.64. On the other side will be Daniel Norris who only has 28 innings pitched but has a respectable 3.81 ERA. That ERA drops to 2.93 over his last three starts. He did only last 15 innings in those starts so expect both teams to get some bullpen activity in this game. If you play fantasy baseball you might want to load up with Tigers. Berrios has given up 7 home runs in his 32 innings this year. I have a couple of bets on this game. I will be placing 50% on the Tigers money line. 40% on the over. And my last bet will be 10% on a parlay of the Tigers money line and the over. I am not done. I will check the umpire and the late starting lineups to make sure there are no scratches. If it looks good I will also be taking the Tigers on the REVERSE RUN LINE (-1.5 runs) as a slight dog.

Score Prediction: Tigers 11 – Twins 4
