The Tigers are 19-43 in their last 62 road games, 2-5 in their last 7 vs. American League Central and 7-17 in Boyds last 24 road starts. The White Sox are 27-55 in their last 82 during game 2 of a series, 2-6 in their last 8 Sunday games and 5-2 in Lopezs last 7 home starts. The White Sox are 2-5 in Lopezs last 7 starts vs. Tigers and the Tigers are 2-5 in Boyds last 7 starts vs. White Sox. The over is 5-2 in White Sox last 7 overall. The over is 3-1-1 in Boyds last 5 starts with 4 days of rest.
Boyd has been rather solid this season, going at least six innings in each of his last four starts and allowing three or less runs in this games. Boyd is also allowing a .202 batting average of the season. Lopez has been tagged more than not this season, allowing seven homers in 25.1 innings and giving up a .324 batting average. The Detroit Tigers aren't great on the road dating back to last season, but they have the pitching advantage here and are playing slightly better baseball overall. I'll side with the Tigers.
