1 unit on Detroit -156 (moneyline) (risk 1 to return 1.64) RESULT: WIN
The Tigers needed a big game from David Price in their finale delivering 7.1 innings of scoreless pitching as the Tigers won the division by a single game. Phil Hughes had a breakout season a year ago in a Twin's uniform for the first time, and finished at 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA. Price has owned the Twins facing them four times a year ago, posting a 2.40 ERA and a WHIP of 0.93, while limiting their line up to a .193 batting average against him. The Twins could be in trouble as they are a woeful 35-89 vs. a pitcher with a WHIP of less than 1.15, certainly the territory of Price over his career. The Tigers are home and have the edge in all areas here. Make the play on Detroit.
