MLB Lines Report on Detroit Tigers at Minnesota Twins

Written by on April 28, 2015

It’s something of a cliché to say that the 162-game baseball season is a rollercoaster ride for most of the teams in the league and MLB odds bettors across the globe, but there really is no better way to put it. Teams cannot afford to get too high or too low, as they know that fortunes can change in a hurry. As the first month of the season draws to a close, the Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers, who meet in the third of a 3-game series on Wednesday, have already hopped on board their own personal coasters.

Date: Wednesday, April 29, 2015 Time: 1:10PM Venue: Target Field Opening Line: Detroit -117 The Detroit Tigers (14-6) came charging out of the gate, winning 9 of their first 10 games of the season, including 6 in a row to get things rolling. They then went on a bit of a slide, losing 5 of 7 games, but look to be heading in an upwards direction again, ripping off three straight, including a win in the opening game of this series. The little glitch in the season’s proceedings came when the pithing went off the rails for the Tigers, but you really do get the sense that this was a momentary thing, and that they are going to be head to head with the Royals all season long. Taking to the mound for the Tigers on Wednesday will be Shane Greene (3-1, 3.00 ERA), and he will be looking to bounce back from the hammering he took at the hands of the Tigers in his last outing. Prior to that game, he had been pretty much spot on in his previous 3 starts. The Minnesota Twins (8-11) rollercoaster went on a downward spiral right off the bat, as they opened the season losing 6 of their first 7 games. They have slowly started to chip away and climb back, though, and have had series wind over the Royals, Indians, and Mariners that have helped them gain a little bit more respectability. There is still a lot of work to be done, though, if they hope to remain competitive in a division that is quickly starting to be dominated by the Royals and the Tigers. The Twins will send Phil Hughes (0-4, 4.39 ERA) to the mound on Wednesday, and will hope to finally give him some run support. Despite his record, Hughes has not pitched badly at all, and will be looking to get the monkey off his back with the W.

This looks like being a pretty good pitching match-up, which means it might come down to who can get those run in when runners do get on. You really have to give the edge to the Tigers if that is indeed the case.
