  • The Tigers are the largest home underdog of the season tonight, with Gregory Soto taking on Justin Verlander and the Astros.
  • Windy conditions are impacting the over/under, though, and using Action Network's betting tools we can see how sharp bettors are reacting.

Tonight in Motown, the lowly Tigers and their lowly starter, Gregory Soto, face the mighty Astros and their future Hall of Fame starter who’s married to a supermodel, Justin Verlander.

It’ll certainly be an uphill battle for Detroit, which, at +315, is currently in line to be the third-largest underdog of the season. The Orioles are owners of both larger numbers — both of which occurred during their first series of the year against the Yankees, and they actually won one at +331.

I’m not going to go and tell you that betting on Detroit is some sneaky smart play or something, though. Instead, as the title implies, I’m focused on the over/under.

Tonight at Comerica, temperatures in the upper 60s will be accompanied by a 9 mph wind out to left field — something that has been a strong spot for the over historically, but particularly so at Comerica Park.
