Detroit Tigers at Boston Red Sox Prediction

Heading into Tuesday’s American League matchup between Detroit and Boston, the Red Sox are the heavy favorites on the moneyline. However, despite his 1-5 record, Beau Brieske comes into the game throwing the ball well. The Tigers right-hander has not given up a run in his past 2 starts. I see him continuing his recent success as the Tigers pull off the upset.
