Detroit Tigers vs. Oakland Athletics Predictions

Score Prediction Tigers 4 Athletics 1

The Athletics have roared back following a slow start to the season by winning seven consecutive games, including the first three games against the Tigers.

Detroit has been shut out in the last two games against Oakland, but the Tigers try to avoid the sweep today with southpaw Matthew Boyd on the mound. Boyd has pitched well by compiling a 1.86 ERA in two starts and gives the Tigers a good chance to win a pitcher's duel at Oakland Coliseum.
