Detroit Tigers: Looking to Dominate at Home
Matthew Boyd, the left-handed pitcher, will be starting for the Tigers. Boyd has a record of 4-5 with a 5.60 ERA, 1.35 WHIP, and has logged 64 strikeouts over 64.1 innings. His high ERA indicates that he has been struggling to keep the runs in check.
The Tigers' team batting average stands at .228. Riley Greene leads the team with a batting average of .296, while Jake Rogers has contributed 9 home runs. However, Riley Greene is currently on the 10-day injured list, which could affect the Tigers’ offensive game.
Kansas City Royals: Seeking Momentum on the Road
Brady Singer, the right-handed pitcher, will take the mound for the Royals. Singer's record stands at 4-6 with a 6.33 ERA, 1.61 WHIP, and 65 strikeouts over 69.2 innings. Similar to Boyd, Singer's high ERA suggests susceptibility to allowing runs.
The Royals are batting at an average of .232. Salvador Perez is a key player with 14 home runs and a batting average of .267, leading the team in RBIs as well.
Given the pitching records of both Brady Singer and Matthew Boyd, combined with the recent performances of the two teams, the game is poised for a high-scoring affair. Both pitchers have high ERAs, indicating that they tend to allow a significant number of runs. Additionally, both teams have displayed decent batting averages, and have hitters capable of capitalizing on the pitchers' struggles.
Furthermore, the Royals have been involved in high-scoring games recently, with scores such as 10-9 against the LA Angels. This trend, combined with the vulnerabilities in the pitching from both sides, makes the over of 9 runs a strong bet for this game.
Pick: Over 9 runs
