BEST: Tigers +1.5

Tigers to cover the run line has a 59% probability

These two sides have had quite different runs so far this season but our model thinks that Detroit should be able to cover as the dogs in this one.


Cubs to win has a 53% probability

The Cubs are coming off a hit against their cross-town rival White Sox last time out and the more likely victor today also.


Total runs under 10 has a 53% probability

Our model thinks this one will be dominated by the outfield, seeing the 10 run mark as a bridge too far for these sides today.

Dimers' take-out

The Cubs are favorites for this one but based on the run line pick, our data suggests it should be a tight game with little runs. If you're keen to play, you can review the best legal online sportsbooks in your area, here.
