ML: White Sox +100 Tigers -110
Odds: Detroit Tigers -1.5 , Total: O/U 9
After playing last night, the Tigers and White Sox will square up for a double header on Tuesday. Monday's matchup ended in a 7-4 White Sox win. Last night's strong, 8 strikeout, performance by all-star pitcher Lucas Giolito gave the White Sox their second win in a row. The game was full of hits, with 14 for the White Sox and 11 for the Tigers. Playing in a doubleheader is always interesting and with extra fatigue we could see even more mistakes made on both sides of the field. Detroit is 30 games back of the wild card spot and in last place in the AL, so will they have enough motivation to knock off the White Sox today?
Detroit Betting Trends show that they are struggling not only at home but in all their games
After last nights loss, Detroit is 1-9 in their last 10 games at home and 3-17 SU in their last 20 games. Will todays game be any different? Will Tigers fans have something to be happy about for a few hours? The Tigers as a team bat .233 and finally reached 100 HRs last night. At the young age of 36, Miguel Cabrera still leads the charge for the Tigers. For his career, Cabrera has bat .315 has 472 HRs and 1678 RBIs. Unfortunately for the Tigers, he has really slowed down this year but nobody has picked up the slack. Cabrera still leads the team in batting average at .284 and in RBIs with 43. Other than Cabrera, 1st baseman Brandon Dixon has held his own in his second year. In 78 games played Dixon has 14 HRs, 43 RBIs and a .265 batting average. On most other teams, Dixon would not be near the top in offensive stats, but that displays how poor the Tigers have been all year. Also of note, 2B Josh Harrison, SP Jordan Zimmerman, and 3B Jeimer Candelario are all on the injury report heading into todays game with the White Sox.
