The Detroit Tigers look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The Tigers have scored 12 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in four of their last six games. The Tigers have won three of their last four games when scoring four or more runs. JaCoby Jones leads the Tigers with nine hits and six RBI while Jonathan Schoop and Niko Goodrum have combined for 12 hits and nine RBI. Spencer Turnbull gets the ball, and he is 0-0 with a 1.80 ERA and eight strikeouts this season. This will be Turnbull’s second career game against the Reds.

The Reds are 4-1 in their last 5 road games, 10-21 in their last 31 interleague games and 4-1 in their last 5 games as a road favorite. The Tigers are 17-36 in their last 53 interleague games, 16-36 in their last 52 interleague games as an underdog and 14-37 in their last 51 during game 1 of a series. The over is 4-1 in Reds last 5 overall. The under is 18-7-1 in Tigers last 26 overall. The Reds are 1-5 in the last 6 meetings in Detroit and 1-4 in the last 5 meetings.

The Cincinnati Reds just can't figure things out at the moment and have a pitching staff that's gotten rocked more times than not. The Detroit Tigers weren't expected to do much this season, but they've won four of their last six games and have been a nice underdog play through the first week. Neither of these clubs will like ly continue their current form for long, but it's hard to ignore the hotter team at this price. Give me the Tigers and the plus money.
