Oh boy. After hitting my first ever Moneyline Underdog Monday bet, we've dropped to 1-3-1 (-1.93 units) overall.

That's okay. I have a good feeling about tonight's, and it's a big one.

I'm going against the team that lost for me last week. I'm going to take the Detroit Tigers against the Tampa Bay Rays. They're available at +170 at WynnBET Sportsbook.

Tigers to Beat Rays on May 16th

The Rays will trot out Corey Kluber, who will try to rebound after giving up eight earned runs to the Angels in his last start. He sports a 4.55 ERA, and a concerning 1.315 WHIP this season.

He'll face Tigers' rookie Alex Faedo, who allowed only two earned runs in his first two starts. Now, he gets to face a Rays offense that is just 24th in OPS this month.

One of the biggest reasons why I like this bet, is the Tigers bullpen. They've exceeded expectations this season. They rank third in all of Major League Baseball with a bullpen ERA of 2.73. Meanwhile, the Rays bullpen has dropped down to 13th.

If you're looking for a big underdog tonight, you won't find one better than the Tigers at +170.

Pick: Tigers +170
