The Tigers are 1-4 in their last 5 during game 1 of a series and 0-4 in their last 4 vs. a team with a losing record. The White Sox are 5-2 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 1-5 in Quintanas last 6 starts. The White Sox are 2-5 in Quintanas last 7 starts vs. Tigers.
Would you back the Tigers right now with the way they're playing. Me neither. Detroit can't put runs on the board and has a sloppy bullpen. I'm taking the home team and the reasonable chalk until Detroit turns things around.
