The Tigers and Rays face off on Thursday night, with Detroit looking for its fourth straight win. The Tigers are done when it comes to having serious postseason hopes but they still have been putting together a solid run as of late.

Tampa Bay comes into Thursday night sitting firmly in first place in the AL East. The Rays have used a solid combination of pitching and power hitting to propel them to 90 wins coming into Thursday night.

The Rays are in the top 10 in ERA, WHIP and are just outside the top 10 in Batting Average Against.

Detroit, despite being a 76-loss team, is 18th in ERA. This is not a stellar mark by any means, but the Tigers have flexed some pitching muscle as of late.

In their recent matchup with the first-place Milwaukee Brewers, the Tigers held them to one run over two games.

The Tigers have gone under on the total in four of their last seven games. Meanwhile, the Rays have gone under twice and had two push results over their last seven games.

With all of this in mind, our latest MLB PRO Report shows that the total is looking like a solid play on Thursday night.
