Will the Tigers go over or under their win total in 2021?

We take a look at the betting lines on DraftKings Sportsbook for win total and to make the postseason for the Detroit Tigers.

There’s no doubt that Detroit Tigers’ long-term future is bright. With five of the game’s top 40 prospects in their system, this recent stretch of futility should come to an end soon. But the immediate future still looks dreary. With a projected win total of 68.5, can they clear the low bar that has been set for them? Let’s take a look at the best betting option for the Tigers’ win total line on DraftKings Sportsbook.

Detroit Tigers Over 68.5 wins (+101)

Whether the Tigers reach that number will hinge most on how they handle their starting rotation. Specifically, when do they let Casey Mize, Tarik Skubal and Matt Manning — three of the best pitching prospects in MLB — settle in with the big-league club? The Tigers’ starting staff had an earned run average in 2020 that was nearly one full run higher than every other club. But those three plus Spencer Turnbull and Matthew Boyd are not a bad-looking crew. The offense looks better on paper, too, following the additions of Robbie Grossman and Renato Nunez. This is going to be very close, so take a chance on the side that can give you some more profit. Betting the under here is at -125.
