Major League Baseball Odds San Francisco Giants at Detroit Tigers

The Detroit Tigers are hosting the San Francisco Giants in MLB Thursday action. The game is scheduled for a 1:10 p.m. start time and the Tigers are favored to pick up the victory in this one.

MLB Odds
Detroit -110
Total: 9.5 runs

Neither the Tigers or Giants are having the type of season they had envisioned, but in any case both teams still have some talented squads. The Giants have played better in recent times, but they still have absolutely no shot at making the playoffs. The NL West is a three-team race and all three of those squads (LA, Arizona, Colorado) will probably be making the post season.

Detroit is in an interesting spot, if they continue to pile up the losses in the next two weeks they are certain to be sellers at the deadline. But the AL Central has them only seven games out, so a strong week could have them right back in it. 

The Giants are sending Johnny Cueto to the mound. He's 6-7 with a 4.26 ERA this season. Justin Upton has the most success for the Tigers against Cueto, clubbing two home runs in 20 plate appearances. Miguel Cabrera has four hits in eight at bats, including a home run.

The Tigers will send Anibal Sanchez to the mound. He has not had a good past few seasons and is 0-0 this year with a 6.34 ERA.
