Tigers vs Red Sox Odds - Redemption time for desperate Red Sox

MLB oddsA month ago, the Tigers vs Red Sox odds would’ve featured a division leader versus a sputtering contender with a lot to prove. That’s still the case today, but now the roles are reversed. The Tigers sit atop the AL Central while the Red Sox were just swept by the Yankees. Can Boston right its sinking MLB betting ship?

Tigers vs Red Sox odds: Emotions will run high after Red Sox were swept by Yankees

  • Red Sox have strong track record against Edwin Jackson
  • Young Porcello, Galarraga in trouble
  • Verlander should pull out a “W”

Tonight, 7:10 p.m. ET
Edwin Jackson (8-5, 2.62) vs Brad Penny (7-6, 5.20)

Talk about consistent. Entering the Tigers vs Red Sox odds, Edwin Jackson has allowed three or fewer runs in 20 of 22 starts this season. He doesn’t pick his spots either; he has a 2.47 road ERA and 1.38 ERA against the Yankees. You have to think that bodes well for his chances tonight in Boston. However, he’s 0-4 at Fenway in his career and four current BoSox regulars have career averages of .375 or higher against him.

Brad Penny is nothing special but he’s 5-2 at home this season and the Red Sox have to win this one. Bet on Boston at the sportsbook to win an emotional homecoming.

MLB betting pick: Red Sox

Tuesday August 11, 7:10 p.m. ET
Rick Porcello (10-7, 4.30) vs Junichi Tazawa (0-1, 10.80)

It’s been a typical rookie season for Rick Porcello. He’s flashed brilliance but has also started taking his lumps as teams get the book on him. I’m not crazy about his Tigers vs Red Sox odds for two reasons. For one, Boston lineup rocked him the first time he faced them this season. Secondly, even though Junichi Tazawa was lit up in his last appearance, unknown pitchers can often dazzle since teams know so little about them. Why not take a flier on Boston’s sports betting lines? You may get underdog value.

MLB betting pick: Red Sox

Wednesday, August 12, 7:10 p.m. ET
Armando Galarraga (6-10, 5.23) vs Josh Beckett (13-4, 3.12)

Here’s a slam dunk for you. Not only did Josh Beckett blank the Tigers for seven innings already this season, he’s been on fire of late. He’s shut out opponents in five of his last 10 starts and he’s given us no reason to think that will change in Wednesday’s Tigers vs Red Sox odds. Did I mention he’s 7-0 at Fenway Park in 2009? Even if Armando Galarraga’s at his best, it won’t be enough to best Beckett.

MLB betting pick: Red Sox

Thursday, August 13, 1:35 p.m. ET
Justin Verlander (12-6, 3.45) vs Clay Buchholz (1-2, 5.33)

Justin Verlander’s annual second-half swoon has officially begun. His post All-Star-break ERA is 4.79 all-time and he’s trending that way after allowing five earned runs twice in a row. However, even when Verlander struggles, he still misses bats and scrapes out wins about half the time. I think he can pull off the minor Tigers vs Red Sox odds upset. He’ll likely get touched up by Victor Martinez, who has four homers off him in 38 at bat, but the Tigers should give him enough run support to win. They’ve beat up young Clay Buchholz before and Buchholz still doesn’t look major-league ready despite the odd flash of brilliance.

Bet over the total for this game and bet on the Tigers.

MLB betting pick: Tigers
