🔥 Tigers (+108) vs Red Sox (-130) O/U 9.0
The Tigers are coming in with a 53-64 record and the Red Sox at 61-56. The Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez is bringing a 2.75 ERA to the mound, while the Red Sox's Kutter Crawford is sporting a 3.80 ERA. With the Red Sox's stronger record and Crawford's higher ERA, this game is sure to be a nail-biter.
