Probable Pitcher:  Chris Archer (0-2, 4.19 ERA)

Detroit Tigers

Tarik Skubal allowed just two hits in seven shutout innings in Detroit Tigers' 5-0 win.

Probable Pitcher:

Alex Faedo (1-2, 3.00 ERA) will be on the mound for the Tigers in the 2nd game of the series. Faedo allowed two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two in six innings, but he took the loss Saturday versus the Guardians.

BETTING TRENDS

Minnesota are 3-6 SU in their last 9 games.

Minnesota are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games against Detroit.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Detroit's last 6 games against Minnesota.

Detroit are 8-2 SU in their last 10 games at home.

Prediction

The Twins struggled again and could't do anything vs Skubal pitching. They haven't scored a single run in the last 2 games and it's hard to trust them at this point. The Tigers have won 4 of their last 5 games and also the last 2 series as they already secured this one. With the Twins struggling offensively the best thing to do is to stay with the Tigers.

PICK: Tigers ML (+113)
