Yankees vs Tigers Run Line Pick

The Pick: Over 7.5 runs

This game will be played at 7:05 PM ET in Yankee Stadium

Why bet the over 7.5 runs?

📣DET - Tarik Skubal (L) vs. NYY - Gerrit Cole (R)

✅ It'll be Gerrit Cole and Tarik Skubal on the mound in this game with a 7.5 over/under. The Yankees are massive -305 favorites, so Vegas fully expects them to easily win this game. I agree, but I think the Yankees do enough offensively to hit the over by themselves. You also have to expect the Tigers to put up at least a run or two. This number is far too low. 

✅ Detroit Tigers SP Tarik Skubal is not a very good starting pitcher. He's given up a combined .371 wOBA over the past two seasons against both righties and lefties. The Yankees remain one of the more lethal lineups in baseball and it's pretty reasonable to think they will put up eight of their own runs against Skubal and the lowly Tigers bullpen. Giancarlo Stanton and Aaron Judge are two of the best hitters in baseball against lefties and they're surrounded by seven other guys with .320+ wOBA's against lefties. 

✅While Gerrit Cole will likely shut down the Tigers for the most part, I still think they score two or three runs at least. Cole isn't perfect and this ballpark can give away runs at times. I love the over in this game and recommend you dive in before the line hits 9 or 9.5. The Yankees and Tigers are going to matchup in a game that will likely be high-scoring and I fully expect double-digit runs here.

📈 Over is 34-14-4 in Yankees last 52 games vs. a team with a winning % below .400.

Yankees vs Tigers Predictions

Intro about predictions

Yankees vs Tigers Run Line Predictions

Betting against the run line is a wager unique to baseball, so don't be worried if you are unfamiliar. This is a way for baseball to set their type of spread, almost always using (-1.5) and (+1.5) runs. This is a wager that is sometimes popular, often depending on the moneyline odds. When one team is heavily favored, bettors will often look to bet the run line instead. 

With the Yankees being a much better overall team, this could certainly be one of those spots. For example, let's say the Yankees are massive -300 favorites in this game. Instead of betting that, they might be (-160) to win by (-1.5) runs. This is a way to get a better price, but the Yankees must win by two or more runs to cash the wager. On the flip side, a (+1.5) wager on the Detroit Tigers would allow them to either win the game or lose by a single run. 

Make sure to check out the Yankees vs Tigers run line predictions above as we will be sure to let you know if this is a wager worth considering or not. The Yankees and Tigers might be in different parts of the MLB, but this is a game that either team can win. You will not want to miss out on the picks and odds above. 

Detroit Tigers vs New York Yankees Over/Under Betting

When you don’t have a strong feeling on which team will win the game, you can choose to wager on the over/under. Betting the over/under comes down to picking whether the Yankees and Tigers will combine for more or less than a certain amount of runs. That number is set by the sportsbooks and will adjust as action comes in heavier on one side.

For example, let’s say the Tigers vs Yankees over/under is set to 9.5 runs. A wager on the over would call for 10 or more total runs scored while a bet on the under would require nine or fewer total runs scored. This is the second-most popular way to wager on MLB games and a very fun way to wager.

Yankees vs Tigers Moneyline Predictions

The moneyline is a wager that you’re likely aware of if you have bet on any of the American sports. Allowing you to ignore the over/under and run line, the moneyline requires you to simply pick which team will win the game. This can seem like the best bet of all, but you have to make sure the odds are correct.

The moneyline is only a wager to consider on occasion, and you can be sure we will let you know when that is. Make sure you keep updated with the Yankees vs Tigers predictions and picks above as we will updating them all series long. 

We are here to bring you the best possible Yankees vs Tigers moneyline predictions above. Depending on just how steep these odds are, the moneyline could either be the wager to make or one to ignore. We will bring you predictions to make sure you can profit while tuning in.

Detroit Tigers vs New York Yankees Odds

Odds in the MLB tend to slide around a bit, though drastic line movement seems to be a bit rare. However, it certainly happens when a pitcher is changed or a key hitter is scratched. More often than not, line movement for MLB games is due to action coming in heavier on one side than the other. In turn, it’s our job to know how to react and to know whether we should lock the bet in or wait it out.
