The Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins play Monday afternoon at the Comerica Park.
The Minnesota Twins look for a bounce back season after striking up the joint last year with 92 losses. To help turn things around, the Twins went ahead and brought back Torii Hunter, who will add some pop and mentor this young squad. The Twins are looking for big seasons from youngsters Danny Santana and Oswaldo Arcia, while Brian Dozier will hold down the fort for the most part on the offensive end. The Minnesota Twins have their work cut out for them again this season, but they have a lot of young talent that could surprise some folks. Phil Hughes gets the ball, and he was 16-10 with a 3.52 ERA with 186 strikeouts last season. Hughes is 7-6 with a 3.91 ERA and 67 strikeouts in his career against the Twins.

The Detroit Tigers once again return a stacked team with high expectations and hopes to make the playoffs for a fifth straight season. The Tigers are led by Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez and Yoenis Cespedes, a batting lineup that should continue to produce a ton of runs. Of course, the Tigers also have a loaded pitching staff even though Justin Verlander will begin the season on the DL. The Detroit Tigers have to be the favorite to win the Central and have as good of a chance as anybody to win the World Series when it’s all said and done. David Price takes the hill, and he was 15-12 with a 3.26 ERA and 271 strikeouts last season. Price is 5-3 with a 2.55 ERA and 75 strikeouts in his career against the Twins.
The Twins are 17-39 in their last 56 during game 1 of a series and 7-3 in Hughes' last 10 starts. The Tigers are 8-3 in their last 11 during game 1 of a series and 4-1 in Price's last 5 starts vs. American League Central. The over is 8-3 in the last 11 meetings.
The Twins couldn't have received a tougher matchup to get 2015 off to a good start. Take the Tigers and the spread to give your wager more value.
