Detroit Tigers vs. Texas Rangers- Tuesday, June 24

In a battle between two teams heading in opposite directions, the Detroit Tigers will put their current four-game winning streak on the line this Tuesday night against the struggling Texas Rangers at Globe Life Park in Arlington. This series opener is set to get underway at 8:05 p.m. (ET) and it will be broadcast nationally on the MLB Network.

Detroit has had its own share of struggles over the past few weeks but it has appeared to have righted the ship with a three-game sweep of Cleveland this past weekend following a 2-1 victory over Kansas City last Thursday as a 156 home favorite on BetAnySports’ closing MLB moneyline. This helped to erase the memory of a 3-7 slide in its previous 10 games. It is now 40-32 on the year with a solid 21-13 record on the road. The total has gone OVER in the Tigers’ last three outings after pounding out a total of 21 runs against the Indians.

This burst of power at the plate has the Tigers ranked sixth in the American League in scoring with an average of 4.56 runs per game. Overall pitching continues to be an issue with a team ERA of 4.12. Drew Smyly is scheduled to get the start for Detroit in Tuesday night’s series opener. The left-hander has looked sharp in the month of June with a 1.89 ERA and a OPS of .624 in his last three starts.

The Rangers’ losing streak reached five games after getting swept by the Los Angeles Angels in three games this past weekend. This came on the heels of a 2-1 series loss to Oakland that has them trailing the Athletics in the AL West by 11.5 games with an overall record of 35-40. Texas is 16-19 at home this season and the total has gone OVER in seven of their last nine home games.

Texas matches-up well against the Tigers in scoring with an average of 4.24 runs per game but its pitching staff has been even shakier this season with a staff ERA of 4.51, which is ranked last in the AL. The Rangers will turn to Colby Lewis as their starter for Tuesday night. It has been rough go of it for the right-hander in his last six starts after allowing five earned runs in four of those outings. Overall, he is 5-4 this season with a 5.97 ERA through 12 previous starts.

BetAnySports has opened Detroit as a slight -107 road favorite for this contest and despite the fact that it is just 1-5 in its last six road games against the Rangers, I am sticking with the hot hand in this one with a play on the Tigers.
