2 units on Detroit -120 (moneyline) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: WIN
The Tigers have been huge at home all season at 47-28, and the Royals are 6-22 in their last 28 games played on the road. The line is being held down by the fact that Zach Grienke is on the hill for the Royals, and as much as I respect him, it takes more than a pitcher to win on the road and the Royals have certainly offered proof to that when he takes the mound on the road. The Royals are 8-20 in Greinke's last 28 road starts, so despite his best efforts the Royals are no better a road team with him on the mound than otherwise, which certainly offers value in this moneyline which over-compensates for him. I'll back the Tigers in this one.
