Thanks to an awful start to this series, the Cleveland Guardians are slipping further away from first place in the AL Central and heading towards third. The Twins have a small cushion at the top and the White Sox are on the Guardians’ heels. Meanwhile, the Tigers and Royals are more than a dozen games off the pace. 

Despite this, the Tigers managed to take the first two games of this series on the road by a combined score of 9-4. These are the games that Cleveland needs to win and hopes to close out the series on a high note this afternoon. 

Here are the odds for this game from WynnBET.

Guardians vs. Tigers Prediction and Pick

The Guardians are in a good spot to get back on track today with Shane Bieber (3-4) on the mound.

While his record isn’t all that, Bieber has a sparkling 3.16 ERA and 1.16 WHIP with 93 strikeouts in 91 innings. All three marks put him in the Top 35 of all pitchers in the league. This will be the third time this season Bieber faces Detroit and he’s been fantastic against them during his entire career. In 152 total at-bats, the current Tigers are hitting just .152 against him with a .434 OPS and 52 strikeouts.

n his last game against them, Bieber allowed one run over eight innings with five strikeouts and zero walks. 

Facing off against Bieber will be veteran pine tar user Michael Pineda. Pineda will be making his second start since returning to the rotation on July 1 in a loss to the lowly Royals. KC scored three earned runs off seven hits over five innings in that loss. This has been the story of the year so far for Pineda in limited action.

Aside from two games against the Twins and Yankees during April, Pineda’s other starts have been against awful teams. He allowed a couple of runs each to the A’s and Pirates before getting smacked around by the Royals. Pineda hasn’t faced a good offense in months and I don’t foresee this matchup going well for him or the Tigers. 

Pick: Guardians -1.5 (+100)
