Detroit are 1-7 in their last 8 Monday games and over is 24-6-1 in Detroit last 31 home games and Detroit are 12-40 in their last 52 games on grass. Kansas City are 9-2 in the last 11 meetings.
Neither team makes me excited and probably the Tigers even less so perhaps something small on the Tigers if you are bored…
