Detroit is 4-10 in their last 14 game two’s of a series and 7-20 in their last 27 games. The under is 12-3-2 in Detroit’s last 17 Saturday games. Cleveland is 3-5 in their last 8 games and 36-17 in their last 53 games as a favorite. The over is 7-4 in Cleveland’s last 11 home games. Detroit is 18-63 in these two teams last 81 head to head meetings.

The Tigers come into this game still having major issues hitting the ball and scoring runs. Detroit has pitched pretty well this season and will start Faedo, who has been decent in a small sample size this year. Cleveland has struggled lately and will turn to Bieber to turn it around. I like Cleveland to win this game, but I am taking the under with a poor hitting Detroit team.
