VSiN’s Greg Peterson goes over the best betting options for Monday’s matchup between the Detroit Tigers and Boston Red Sox.

The Tigers travel to Boston with the lowest-scoring offense in MLB, averaging just over 2.8 runs per game this season, and will look to build off the 21 runs they plated over the weekend on Monday vs. the Red Sox.

Detroit Tigers vs. Boston Red Sox (-190, 9.5)

As rough as things have been on offense overall this season, things have been even worse on the road for Detroit. They’re averaging 2.2 runs per game with just over 0.5 home runs per game while hitting .199, all of which are the lowest road marks of any team.

The Tigers will give the ball to Alex Faedo, who has allowed two runs or fewer in seven of eight starts this season. The Tigers going 4-4 in his starts despite the team scoring four runs or fewer in every one of his starts.

Behind him, the Tigers have a bullpen that ranks seventh in ERA (3.23) with the third-fewest home runs allowed of any bullpen in the league (17).

The Red Sox will give Josh Winckowski his third career start. Winckowski is coming off throwing five scoreless innings vs. Oakland in his last start, and in nine starts at the minor-league level, he had a 3.38 ERA with 0.4 home runs and 1.7 walks per nine innings.

The Red Sox are 10th in the league in ERA since the start of May and could be involved in a low-scoring affair with a Tigers team that has played over 60% of their games to the under this season.

The Play: Tigers vs. Red Sox Under 9.5
