The Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers meet for a midday battle at 12:05 p.m. ET on Sunday. Detroit is listed as a -145 favorite (risk $145 to win $100) at Caesars Sportsbook, while the Over-Under is set at 7.5 (see up-to-date odds for every game this week on our MLB odds page). Before making any Royals vs. Tigers picks, you NEED to check out the MLB predictions from the SportsLine Projection Model.

The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every MLB game 10,000 times and it is off to a strong start to the 2022 season. It's on a 59-51 run on top-rated MLB money-line picks through 12 weeks. This is the same model that pegged the 2021 Atlanta Braves at 10-1 as one of three best bets to win it all last season. Anybody who has followed it has seen profitable returns.

The model knows the Royals are facing a Tigers team that is struggling on offense. Detroit ranks near the bottom of the American League in runs scored, home runs, batting average and several additional metrics. Kansas City is also deploying a solid starting pitching option in Brady Singer, who is issuing only 1.7 walks per nine innings in 2022. Singer also sports a 3.86 ERA on the road, with right-handed hitters posting only a .626 OPS against him.

The model also knows the Tigers can believe in Tarik Skubal. The 25-year-old left-hander has a 3.75 ERA with 89 strikeouts in 84 innings this season. Skubal is walking only 2.3 batters per nine innings with a 1.167 WHIP. He also has a 3.13 ERA in home starts, and Skubal is holding the opposition to a .667 OPS in 2022.

Now, it has set its sights on Royals vs. Tigers. We can tell you the model is leaning over the total, and it also says one team has all the value! You ABSOLUTELY need to see it before locking in any MLB picks.
