Betting Impact:

For the last three years, the Detroit Tigers have been synonymous with losing. Given that they have lost 98+ games each year, one would think that their lack of success would apply to interleague games as well. However, in the scenario where they are at home against a losing team, they fare surprisingly well. They continued this trend by winning the first game of the series as huge underdogs against the Reds, and are once again +148 moneyline underdogs in the second game of the series, according to BettingPros consensus odds.
