Tigers vs. Red Sox Prediction

I’m on the Tigers here. I know Mize hasn’t necessarily been at his best in recent outings, but the thing here is that I still trust this Tigers lineup a lot more than I do Boston’s with the Red Sox being at home. The Tigers for me are still the better team right now and I’m just not trying to pass up this kind of plus money price with Detroit. Give me the Tigers in this one to salvage the split.
