With 162 games behind them, the Detroit Tigers and Minnesota Twins have yet to decide who will take this year’s AL Central pennant back home. With a 7-game lead roughly a month ago, this is hardly the spot the Tigers would like to be in. On the other side, Minnesota is exactly where they want to be, with a shot to win the division with one victory. Tonight’s (October 6th) game will be coming from the Metrodome in Minneapolis, MINN at 5:07 pm ET. The Detroit Tigers will turn to super rookie Rick Porcello tonight, while the Twins hope that righty Scott Baker can send them to the postseason. Minnesota finished this season on a tear, coming out on top of 16 of their last 20 games while Detroit has struggled mildly along this home stretch, looking to gather momentum into the playoffs.

Runline/Moneyline – I like the Detroit Tigers tonight on both the runline and moneyline tonight. The Tigers are getting great value on the moneyline (+152) for tonight’s playoff game. With the possible AL rookie of the year on the mound tonight, the Detroit Tigers are looking to win the division that they have held control of since early May. On the other side, the Minnesota Twins are red hot, and are desperately looking to get back into the postseason. Detroit is getting great value on both lines tonight, especially for a team who has looked playoff-bound since early in the season. Bet on Detroit tonight on both the moneyline and the runline.
Over/Under – I like the OVER 8.5 total runs for tonight’s game. The opposing pitchers tonight have similar numbers, with Porcello slightly having the better season. The 20-year-old rookie has been stellar this year with an ERA of around 4. While Bakers ERA has crept up to almost 5, he still has managed to win games this year. I look for both of these pitchers to be decent, but not overpowering these high-powered offenses. Both bullpens are not invincible, which is why I look for a distribution of runs throughout the game. Bet on the over 8.5 total runs in tonight’s game.
