Team Outlook and Scouting Report

LONG TERM OUTLOOK: TRENDING DOWN

Before the season, the Tigers were projected for 63.3 points (average per simulation) but it does not look like they are going to reach that. On 5/9 they had a 66.7% chance before dropping to 52.9% on 5/22. From the start of the season to now their projected point total is down to 52.7. Before the start of their 10 game losing streak they were at 63.8%.

Tigers' Season Forecast Changes

Sportsline not only has a pick on every game and line our Experts provide winning Daily Fantasy Optimal Lineups every day.

SEASON-TO-DATE GRADE: F

Based on the money line projected win totals in each game, the 18-30 Tigers 'should have' 20 wins. They have 16 bad losses (they were favored or got blown out as slight underdogs) vs 13 good wins (wins as clear underdog, or 2+ final margin in what was expected to be a close game, or a 5+ final margin). They have come up especially short at home. Their 9-18- home record is -13% lower than their expected win percentage. Losers of 10 in a row they have a 58.1% chance of seeing that extend to 12 straight. In simulations where the Tigers played every other team (neutral court in playoffs) they won just 31.5% of the time (#30 in the league). In our pre-season simulations they were ranked #29 winning 36.7%.

Their record is slightly better than it should be. Their average run differential is -2.04 which ranks #14 in the AL, but their rank based on win percentage is #13. They are the #14 ranked team in run differential (based on all teams' road stats). This is the same ranking they have among home teams. Their average run differential in their past 14 games is -4.

The most likely scenario over the next 9 games is a record of 2-7 (30% chance). Their chances of winning 4 or more are 20.4%. At #13 in the league, they are behind the Blue Jays by one point.

With a -1.83 disadvantage in projected wins over their next 9 games they may find the gap between them closing.
