Kansas City Royals vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Online Betting Odds
When Justin Verlander is the starting pitcher for the Detroit Tigers – we always stand up and take notice. Heading into the 2013 Major League Baseball season, the Tigers were 95-48 with the Vaporizer on the bump.
Let’s take a look at the Kansas City Royals vs. Detroit Tigers match-up slated for Thursday, April 25, 2013, at 1:08 PM ET from Comerica Park, in Detroit, Michigan. Note the start time as that’s important in this contest.
Detroit Tigers: Sporadic play continues in the Motor City
It’s been a sporadic start for the defending American League Champions as Detroit opened their 2013 MLB schedule with 10-9 record in the weak AL Central. We mentioned that bettors need to take note of today’s start time as the Tigers are 37-14 since 2009 when Verlander is on the hill starting a day game. Opponents have a tough time picking up the Vaporizers pitches at any time of the day – it gets even more difficult when the sun is shining. Royals hitters are in tough today.
Kansas City Royals: Surprise leaders in the American League Central chase
Owners of one of the longest playoff appearance droughts in Major League Baseball (dating back to 1985) the Kansas City Royals are off to a decent start with an AL Central best 10-8 record. That said, it’s not much of a lead as the Tigers and Minnesota Twins are both just a half game back. The Royals haven’t had a winning season since they went 83-79 back in 2003 and they will be hard pressed reach that level again this year as the KC ownership group is the worst in baseball.
