3 units on Detroit -160 (moneyline) (risk 3 to return 3) RESULT: WIN
The Royals appear to be playing better baseball now, but don't lose track of the fact they have played 10 straight games at home. They are just 3-13 in their last 16 on the road. The Tigers have been lethal at home with a 41-24 mark on the season, but facing a left-handed starter takes very good numbers and makes them outstanding. The Tigers are ripping lefties at home to the tune of a 32-13 mark over their last 45 games. They are also 18-5 as a favorite of -151 to -200, so they seldom cough-up games vs. lefties, and especially in this price range. The Royals are also just 1-5 behind Chen in his last six starts as a dog. I'll go with Detroit in this one.
