Guardians vs Tigers Prediction

The current betting odds have the Guardians listed as a favorite in this game according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The Tigers haven't looked great in their games this season with their 42-48 record overall which has them near the bottom of the AL Central and they are also 19-22 in their home games. Meanwhile, The Guardians have looked great in their games this season with their 56-32 record overall which has them leading the AL Central with one of the best records in the entire MLB. They have also looked good in their road games with their 26-21 road record. The Tigers are coming off a sweep of the Reds over the weekend, but the Guardians have also looked better themselves with a series win over the Giants, and they have the much better pitching matchup in this one. The Guardians are going with Lively in this one and he has been a stud for them all season. He is 8-4 with a 3.14 ERA and hasn't been giving up many runs in any of his starts. He did give up 3 earned runs in his last one, but that hasn't been a common theme for him this year, and the team has still won 2 of their last 3 games with him starting. The Tigers are going to have Maeda on the mound in this one and he has looked terrible in his starts this season. He is 2-5 with a 6.71 ERA and the team hasn't been finding any success with him on the mound. The Tigers have lost the last 7 games in a row that he started in, and he also gave up 9 earned runs in his last start. The Guardians have a really good offense that is going to put up runs in this game while Lively shuts down the Tigers who have a much weaker offense. The best way to place a bet here is on the Guardians to win this game.

Notable Quotes

“I’m sure Bo is the first one to tell you he’s not pleased or satisfied with the year he's having offensively. But he’s made such huge strides the last three, four weeks now being willing to make an adjustment in season and to stay ready. He was so prepared for that at-bat.” - Stephen Vogt after his team’s win against the Giants in their game on Sunday.

“We’ve been away from home a long time and played a lot of different games. But the last three have been really fun and pretty clean and pretty well-rounded from the group. Pretty much everybody’s contributed in the last couple of games, and it's fun to win.” - A.J. Hinch after his team’s win against the Reds in their game on Sunday.
