Prediction

Pick: Under 8.5 runs

Based on the current form of both teams and the pitching matchup, the under 8.5 runs seems to be a solid bet. The Tigers have a strong bullpen and a reliable starter in Ben Lively, which could limit the Guardians' struggling offense. Additionally, the Guardians' Kenta Maeda will look to bounce back from his recent struggles. With both teams having shown tendencies for lower-scoring games recently, the under is the favorable choice for this matchup.
