Detroit Tigers Betting Preview

The Tigers are coming off a 7-3 loss against the Red Sox in Game 2 of this series. Despite winning Game 1 in a 5-0 shutout, they were unable to do the same in Game 2.

They will have Reese Olson (1-5) on the mound to start the game. Despite having a losing record, he boasts an ERA of 1.92 and a WHIP of 1.05. As a team, their ERA comes in at 3.81.

With a batting average of.287, Matt Vierling leads them offensively. Riley Greene has put up 10 home runs, while Kerry Carpenter has accumulated 29 RBIs. All three must find a way to dominate in this series if they want a shot at winning again.

Their batting average stands at.234, while their opponent's is at.236. This shows they could likely turn the tables and go the other way with the ratio, but they must capitalize on the offensive end.

Boston Red Sox Betting Preview

The Red Sox succeeded in getting back on track in Game 2 after a 5-0 shutout in Game 1. Ceddanne Rafaela bombed two home runs and drove in five runs total, giving them the boost they needed.

Cooper Criswell (2-2) will start on the mound for them here and offer an ERA of 4.19 and a WHIP of 1.22. His numbers are not as appealing as his opponent's, so he must strive to do better. Their team ERA comes in at 3.32, which is not bad.

The Red Sox have Rafael Devers leading with a.278 ERA, while Tyler O'Neill has accumulated 11 homers. Rafaele leads them with 33 RBIs and offers another threat to help grow their offense in this series.

They are putting up a batting average of.242 while allowing their opponents to put up.232. This is a slight separation between their offense and defense, which means they cannot afford any errors.

MyBookie has the MLB betting odds for this matchup, with the Tigers favored for success. According to market insights, the Tigers have a 52.4 percent chance at success.

The Tigers' starting pitcher and what they could accomplish at the plate in comparison to their defense are extremely appealing. The Red Sox starter's ability to pitch is questionable in terms of his potential performance. Look for the Tigers to get back on track.
