Detroit at Boston

1 unit on Boston -133 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.75) RESULT: WIN
The best way for the Red Sox to get out of their slump is to come home or a face a bad pitcher. They get both tonight! The Tigers went 3-4 on a seven-game homestand out of the All-Star break and head to Boston for the start of a 10-game road trip. Detroit sends out Justin Verlander (0-3, 6.62 ERA), who has been terrible. He couldn't get out of the fourth inning Sunday against Baltimore. He gave up eight hits, including two home runs, and seven earned runs in 3.2 innings in a 9-3 loss to the Orioles. The Tigers are 0-5 as an underdog of +110 to +150, 0-7 in Verlander's last seven starts, as well as 5-16 when Verlander is as an underdog. Boston is 5-2 at Fenway Park and 5-1 as a home favorite. Former Tiger Rick Porcello goes for the Red Sox, and the Sox are 6-2 when Porcello faces a team with a losing record. Detroit is 16-35 at Boston, plus 0-4 when Verlander starts at Fenway. The Red Sox are also 6-1 at Fenway against a team with a losing record, so grab the home team with many chips on its shoulder. Play Boston.
