Road Team Holds Supremacy When BoSox, Tigers Clash

Home-field advantage has basically been non-existent when the Boston Red Sox and Detroit Tigers meet. In the past eight meetings between the two clubs, the road team has gone 6-2, which includes 5-2 after the all-star break last season.

Shark Bites
  • The Red Sox hit a collective .304 against Michael Fulmer last season.
  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of the Tigers' last 11 games.
  • The Red Sox are 2-5 SU and ATS in their last 7 games against the Tigers.

The BoSox send Steven Wright to the bump for the knuckleballer’s first start of the season. Wright made his first all-star appearance thanks to a 2.68 ERA and three complete games in the first half of the 2016 season. However, the right-hander posted a 5.06 ERA in the second half while his strikeout numbers declined immensely.

Reigning AL Rookie of the Year Michael Fulmer makes his first start of the season for the Tigers in their home opener. Fulmer pitched exceptionally well at Comerica Park last season, as the hurler posted a 3.00 ERA and a 1.083 WHIP in 10 home starts. However, he started twice against the Red Sox last season and got banged up for 17 hits and nine earned runs in 13.1 innings.
