The Detroit Tigers’ bats came to life over the weekend, combining for 21 runs in two wins over the Texas Rangers.

However, they came back to reality on Monday as Detroit suffered a 5-2 away defeat to the Boston Red Sox. 

The Tigers will roll out starting pitcher Beau Brieske for Tuesday’s matchup, and the Red Sox are countering with Rich Hill. 

Our experts predict Boston can cover their -1.5 run line and that there will be over 9.5 runs with odds provided by PointsBet Sportsbook. 

Detroit is a +175 money line underdog against Boston on Tuesday, and their run line (+1.5) carries -115 odds at PointsBet Sportsbook. 

Boston is -216 on the money line, while the Red Sox run line (-1.5) has odds of -105. 

If Boston can win Tuesday’s contest by two or more runs, a wager of $105 returns a $100 profit, and if Detroit can win Tuesday’s matchup outright, a $100 bet on the Tigers would return $175 of profit. 

The total for Tuesday’s game is 9.5, and the under has shorter odds at -121 while the over’s odds are +100. 

Let’s break down our experts’ best bets and why they predict Boston can dominate on Tuesday night.

The Detroit Tigers will try to bounce back from their series-opening loss on Monday night, but it may be difficult to do so. 

The Tigers’ Beau Brieske will start tonight, and he has allowed zero runs in his last two starts over 12.2 innings of work. 

After a slow start for the right-hander, he’s settled down and given some consistency to the Detroit rotation. 

He will go up against Boston’s Rich Hill, who carries a 4.42 ERA and allowed three earned runs to the Athletics in his last outing.
