After a close call against the Oakland Athletics, the Detroit Tigers know all too well that jumping out to an early lead in a playoff series doesn’t guarantee anything. Still, up 2-0 on the New York Yankees in the American League Champion Series, it’s hard to imagine they would want it any other way. The two will meet tonight at 8:00pm EST from Comerica Park in Michigan which can be seen live on TBS. MLB betting odds for game 3 of the ALCS between the Yankees vs Tigers at Vegas sportsbooks have listed Detroit as -178 favorites at home while New York would payout +163 on a $100 wager for the road win.
The runline also favors the Tigers with Justin Verlander on the mound at -1.5 (EV) while Phil Hughes and the Yankees are listed at +1.5 (-120). Bookmakers have also listed a low scoring over/under total for game 3 at 7 UNDER (-125) OVER (+105). With bookmakers holding an 11/10 line of the Tigers winning the World Series, the team has bounced back from their brief scare in the ALDS to top the entire list of MLB futures. Handicapping trends favor Detroit at home in MLB betting odds since recently going 13-4 overall, an impressive 5-0 when playing at home and 7-3 after a win. New York in contrast, are listed at 9/1 with a two-game deficit and now must go on the road as the Yankees vs Tigers series shifts to Comerica.
Look for Justin Verlander on the hill for Detroit as the club looks to secure their stranglehold on the depleted Bronx Bombers in game 3 of the ALCS. With Alex Rodriguez slumping noticeably and franchise icon Derek Jeter now sidelined for the first time in his prosperous postseason career, they’ll be hard-pressed to even put up a fight. Still, it’s October, a celebrated time of year where anything can happen. While New York are underdogs in MLB betting odds for game 3 of the ALCS, it is important to note the squad is still 17-8 overall, 9-1 after a loss and 6-4 when playing on Tuesday.
