Detroit Tigers vs Texas Rangers Prediction

I’m on the Tigers in this one. It’ll be interesting to see what Eovaldi does now that the restrictions are off as he was only held to three innings in his last start off of the IL, but he still allowed two runs in that start and I’m not eager to back the Rangers against a lefty, let alone one of the best lefties in baseball. The Tigers had an up and down series in Detroit, but I still think they’re hitting the ball well against righties at the moment and think they get the job done here. Give me Detroit in this one.
