Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Handicapping Call

Detroit Tigers: Finally back in first in AL Central

After opening the 2012 MLB season as undisputed -800 favorites to win the AL Central, Detroit has had a very up and down type season. That said, the Tigers have finally scratched and clawed their way back to the top of the division. It hasn't been easy as the Chicago White Sox have refused to fold. The Cats need a win tonight to reduce their "magic number" to four games (three if the Sox lose) - the Twins are terrible.

Minnesota Twins: Battling for last place in the American League

Minnesota is in a "battle" of their own as they currently sit tied with the Cleveland Indians for dead last in the American League. With both clubs posting a 5-5 record over their last ten games - scoffing at the notion that there's a battle raging wouldn't be proper. Canadian LHP Scott Diamond (12-8 ERA 3.64) gets the call for the Twinkies. Diamond was sharp as he beat the Tigers 10-4 at Comerica Park in Detroit last Sunday.

Tigers vs. Twins: Sports Betting Sites Game Day Handicapping Call

From the "Did You Know" Department: Chicago had +2000 preseason odds to win the ALC Championship. The bookies totally missed on that one. Both Detroit and Chicago have six contests to go and the Motor City Cats own a two-game lead. Chicago gets a white hot Tampa Bay Rays club tonight so Detroit need to beat up on the cellar dwelling Twins. Back the Cats with the -155 ML at the Bookmaker.eu online sportsbook.
