BEST: Over/Under

Total runs under 9.5 has a 55% probability

A massive 55% probability that this game stays under 9.5 runs. Yesterday’s matchup between these two saw 12 runs but our model can’t see that being likely to repeat.


Cubs to win has a 52% probability

The Cubs are the favorites with the books and our model agrees, putting them at a 52% chance of winning. This should be a tight game but the better team so far on the season looks the more likely to chalk this one up in the W column.


Tigers +1.5 has a 60% probability

As our model has this one as so tight at the ML, the best run line play has to be with the underdogs to get within a run.

Dimers' take-out

Tyler Chatwood is 2-1 on the season so far and our model believes he is more likely than not to get to 3-1. If you're keen to play, you can review the best legal online sportsbooks in your area, here.
