Every week we take a look at the hottest and coldest teams as well as the best over and under bets in Major League Baseball.
For the week of June 3-9.
Hot team: Detroit Tigers
Last week: 5-1
Upcoming schedule: at Royals, at Twins
Skinny: The Tigers have won four straight heading into a three-game series in Kansas City. Detroit took two of three from the Tampa Bay Rays last week before sweeping division-rival Cleveland.
Cold team: Cleveland Indians
Last week: 0-6
Upcoming schedule: at Rangers, vs. Nationals
Skinny: Terry Francona’s club was the feel-good story early in the season, but the Tribe has now dropped seven straight games to sink below .500. The Indians have a very tough schedule this week and could find themselves near the bottom of the division standings if they can’t snap the losing skid in Texas against a very tough Rangers team.
Over team: Boston Red Sox
Last week: 5-1 over/under
Season: 34-27-3 over/under
Upcoming schedule: at Rays, at Orioles
Skinny: The Red Sox hosted the high-powered Rangers and Angels last week and runs were aplenty in both series. The teams combined to score an average of 12.3 runs per game in Boston's six high-scoring affairs.
Under team: New York Yankees
Last week: 2-5 over/under
Season: 24-34-5 over/under
Upcoming schedule: at Athletics, at Angels
Skinny: The Yankess have gone low in four consecutive games and five of their last six thanks to a great effort from their pitching staff. New York hurlers held opposing batters to 2.5 runs per game last week.
