Detroit is 19-46 in their last 65 Thursday games and 0-6 in their last 6 games. The over is 20-6-2 in Detroit’s last 28 road games. Toronto is 7-1 in their last 8 games and 6-2 in their last 8 Thursday games. The over is 7-0 in Toronto’s last 7 Thursday games. The under is 21-6 in these two teams last 27 head to head meetings.


Detroit thought they had snapped their losing streak on Wednesday, but they ended up blowing a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the ninth inning. This Detroit team is not good and they are starting Spencer Turnbull, who has allowed 12 earned runs over 8 innings pitched this year. Toronto is playing great right now and will turn to Chris Bassitt, who has allowed 11 earned runs over 9.1 innings pitched this year. It is tough to take an over with this Detroit offense, but both of these pitchers have really struggled this year. Take the over here.
