MINNESOTA (132)

The Tigers just got swept by the Rays and have lost five of their last seven, while Justin Verlander is coming off one of the worst starts of his career. Hector Santiago has been locked in on the mound for the Twins despite his low strikeout rate, and the Tigers have struggled to get on base against lefties this year. Getting plus-anything for the home team in this matchup is great.

DETROIT (-135)

Yeah, I will back Justin Verlander in this spot. I think he is going to be pissed after getting rocked by Cleveland. He gave up nine runs in that start and Verlander has always been a guy that bounces right back. He has had an extra day of rest, which is important early in the season, and I expect him to take that frustration out on a Twins lineup that is scuffling. Verlander has owned the Twins and is 13-5 in his last 18 starts against Minnesota. In fact, all of the trends in this one point to the Tigers. Detroit is 20-7 in their last 27 games against the Twins and 38-18 in their last 56 games in Minnesota. Detroit is 22-6 in the last 28 series openers they've had while Minnesota is just 5-16. The Twins are 5-21 on Fridays and they are just 19-42 in their last 61 home games against a team with a winning record. The Tigers should scratch out enough to back Verlander here.
