The Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Comerica Park. The Red Sox have won the first two games of this series. 

Red Sox Betting Preview

The Red Sox sit with a 4-4 record overall and the offense has been good so far in this series scoring 20 runs total. Rafael Devers had a strong game finishing with two hits, two runs and five RBIs. On the mound for the Red Sox will be Kutter Crawford who sits with an 0-1 record and an ERA of 15.75. In his first start of the season against the Pirates he went four innings giving up eight hits and seven runs. In this game if the Red Sox can continue the success, they will be in good shape. 

Tigers  Betting Preview

It looks like it’s going to be another long season for the Tigers who currently sit with a 2-6 record overall. On Saturday the offense was fine scoring five runs, but the pitching was awful giving up 14 runs and that led to the blowout victory. The pitching for this team might be a problem, but it will probably be the offense that costs them more often. On the mound for the Tigers is Matthew Boyd who sits with a 0-0 record and an ERA of 4.15. In his first start he went 4.2 innings giving up two hits and two runs.

Shane’s Free Pick

There were 19 runs scored on Saturday and this game is going to also be a shootout. Boyd sits with an ERA of 4.15 and he’s going to struggle against a Red Sox offense that has a ton of confidence. The Tigers will also add a few runs and this game is going to be a shootout. Back the over.
