Bronx Bombers Soaring As Favorites

The New York Yankees have rarely been upset recently, with the team going 8-1 in their past nine games when they close as moneyline favorites. The Bronx Bombers opened – and will likely close – as the favorites when they take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park Thursday.

Shark Bites
  • The Yankees are 6-2 in their past eight games against the Tigers.
  • The OVER is 5-1 in the Tigers’ past six games when Matt Boyd starts.
  • The OVER is 4-1 in the past five meetings between the Yankees and Tigers.

The Yanks will be hoping to get a decent start out of Michael Pineda – something that has been far from a sure thing this season. Pineda’s 6.92 ERA is the highest among qualified starting pitchers this season with the righty giving up four or more runs in five of his 10 starts.

Matt Boyd will be getting his third start for the Tigers this season Thursday. Boyd has been pretty terrible in his limited time in the starting rotation during his career with a 1-6 record and a 7.30 ERA in 13 starts.
