Detroit Tigers 2024 World Series Odds

Detroit Tigers MLB Betting

For the Detroit Tigers, it has seven years of losing and misery. Rock bottom was reached in 2019 when the Tigers went 47-114, and there has been a slow climb since then. Last year, the Tigers were three games under .500, and they flirted for a while in the pathetic American League Central before running out of steam. This year, gamblers are in the middle when it comes to the 2024 future market prospects of the Tigers. The AL Central is bad enough to win, and the Tigers made a decent effort at self-improvement in the offseason.

Detroit Tigers MLB Betting Odds

In 2023, the Detroit Tigers had a record of 78-84 and finished 2nd in the American League Central Division. Offensively, Detroit ranked 28th for runs scored, 27th for batting average, 28th for OPS, 25th for home runs, and 26th for stolen bases. Defensively, Detroit ranked 17th for earned run average, 9th for WHIP, 22nd for strikeouts, 26th for quality starts, 27th for fewest errors, and 17th for bullpen ERA. Detroit was +1464 on the moneyline and +658 on the run line.

Last season, the Tigers gave gamblers occasional value and a good profit on the run line and money line. Thus, betting action will be attracted to a Tigers team that is finally showing signs of improvement.

Key offseason acquisitions include RHP Kenta Maeda, RHP Jack Flaherty, RHP Shelby Miller, LHP Andrew Chafin, and OF Mark Canha.

Key offseason departures include DH Miguel Cabrera, LHP Eduardo Rodriguez, and RHP José Cisnero.

After a surprising second-place finish last season and their most wins (78) since 2016, the Tigers are starting the long-awaited shift from rebuilding to contending.

Eduardo Rodriguez’s departure took a big chunk out of the rotation. Still, the Tigers added reasonably priced veterans Kenta Maeda and Jack Flaherty to their starter mix and boosted the bullpen with Andrew Chafin and Shelby Miller.

Signing top prospect Colt Keith to a pre-debut extension was a smart bet on his future upside and also likely means he’ll be in the Opening Day lineup.

Detroit has done a solid job building pitching depth around breakout candidate Tarik Skubal. Still, Mark Canha was the lone addition to a lineup that ranked 28th in runs scored last year and will be relying heavily on young talent like Riley Greene, Spencer Torkelson, and Keith to carry them to respectability on offense.

Detroit ranks 21st for MLB payroll.

Detroit Tigers Key Players
