Which bet types can you choose for the Detroit Tigers?

There are many bet types you can choose for the Detroit Tigers that you can add to your betting slip. Here are a few of the most popular options.

  • Moneyline and Runline: Moneyline and runline bets both focus on picking the winner of the game, though they take slightly different approaches. With the moneyline, the only thing that matters is who wins the game; for the run line, you’re instead dealing with the margin of victory. If Detroit is the favorite on the run line, the Tigers typically must win by at least two runs - a one-run victory would result in a runline loss.
  • Run totals: Also called “over/under” betting, this market is concerned with the combined number of runs the Tigers and their opponent score in a game, regardless of which team wins. Bookmakers will set a projected total and bettors will have to decide if they think the teams will combine to score over or under that benchmark.
  • Props: Another option that isn’t necessarily tied to the final score, prop bets are wagers on specific in-game events that can be based around individual players or the team as a whole. Some examples of Detroit Tigers props would be whether the team will score a run in the first inning, if Spencer Torkelson will hit a home run at any time, or whether Tarik Skubal will finish with over or under 5.5 strikeouts on the mound.

Where do the Detroit Tigers play home games?

The Detroit Tigers play their home games at Comerica Park (2100 Woodward Ave Detroit, MI 48201), located in downtown Detroit. The ballpark is adjacent to Ford Field (home of the NFL’s Detroit Lions) and across the interstate from Little Caesars Arena (where the NHL’s Detroit Red Wings play).

Comerica Park has been the Tigers’ home since 2000 when Tiger Stadium was demolished. Tiger Stadium first saw the team take the field in 1912, tying the venue with Fenway Park in Boston as the oldest MLB ballpark.

How to get tickets to see the Detroit Tigers play

To get tickets to see the Detroit Tigers play, you will need to purchase tickets online through a site like SeatGeek, StubHub, VividSeats, or Ticketmaster. Comerica Park requires you to use digital tickets for entry into the stadium, so plan to have a cell phone or mobile device with you on game day.

Yes, the Detroit Tigers have an official betting partnership with BetMGM Sportsbook MI, becoming the first MLB team to sign a partnership deal with a sportsbook when the organizations linked in March 2021. BetMGM will have Tigers-themed promotional content throughout the season and will have prominently-displayed signage in and around Comerica Park.

Yes, wagering on the Detroit Tigers is legal in Michigan. Gamblers in Michigan have been allowed to bet on the MLB since the first legal MI sportsbooks launched on January 22, 2021. As long as you are physically located within the state borders and at least 21 years of age, you’ll be allowed to bet on the team.

History of the Detroit Tigers

As one of the oldest teams in baseball, the history of the Detroit Tigers is storied and impressive. Here are some of the key moments fans should know.

  • 1894: The Detroit Tigers are founded as members of the Western League.
  • 1901: After the Western League rebranded as the American League, the Tigers became charter members. They have since become the oldest one-name, one-city team in Major League Baseball history.
  • 1905: The Tigers sign Ty Cobb, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest players in baseball history. Cobb would go on to set 90 records over the course of his career, though many have since been broken (of note, Cobb recorded 4,189 hits, which is second all-time, and he still holds the career batting average record at .3662).
  • 1907: Detroit advances to the World Series for the first time but is swept in four games by the Chicago Cubs. The Tigers would make the World Series again each of the next two seasons but would lose to the Cubs again in 1908 (4-1) and to the Pittsburgh Pirates in 1909 (4-3).
  • 1909: Ty Cobb becomes the fifth player to reach the “Triple Crown,” leading the league in home runs, RBI, and batting average.
  • 1912: The Tigers move into their new home ballpark, Tigers Stadium, which would be the team’s home until 1999.
  • 1934: The Tigers win the American League pennant with a then-franchise best 101 wins, but again fall in the World Series to the St. Louis Cardinals in seven games despite holding a 3-2 series lead after Game Five.
  • 1935: Detroit finally gets over the hump and wins its first World Series championship, defeating the Chicago Cubs in six games.
  • 1940: Another World Series appearance for the Tigers, but once again, the team loses in seven games, this time to the Cincinnati Reds.
  • 1945: Hal Newhouser becomes the Tigers’ first Pitching Triple Crown winner, leading the league in wins, strikeouts, and ERA. Newhouser’s dominant performance led Detroit to its second World Series title, defeating the Chicago Cubs in seven games.
  • 1955: Detroit shortstop Harvey Kuenn becomes the first Tigers player to be named American League Rookie of the Year.
  • 1968: After a lengthy pennant drought (by their standards), Detroit wins its third World Series after beating the St. Louis Cardinals (and again, in seven games). Pitcher Denny McLain won both the Cy Young Award and AL MVP while shortstop Alan Trammell was named World Series MVP.
  • 1979: Detroit wins a game against the Chicago White Sox via forfeit as the Sox’s “Disco Demolition Night” promotion backfires in spectacular fashion. A bonfire fueled by disco records raged in centerfield and fans rioted, storming the field and threatening player safety. The Tigers are the most recent MLB team to win a game via forfeit.
  • 1984: The Tigers set a team record with a 104-58 record, the most wins for the club in a single season. After sweeping the Royals in the American League Championship Series, Detroit clinched its fourth World Series crown.
  • 2000: Comerica Park opens as the new home of the Detroit Tigers.
  • 2003: Detroit sets an American League record for most losses in a season with a 43-119 record. However, this dubious record spurred major organizational changes and roster overhaul that would spark several years of title contention thereafter.
  • 2006: Led by Rookie of the Year Justin Verlander and star outfielder Magglio Ordóñez, the Tigers returned to the World Series but lost to a familiar foe, the St. Louis Cardinals, in five games.
  • 2010: Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga hurls a near-perfect game, with what should’ve been the 27th out to secure the win incorrectly called “safe” by first base umpire Jim Joyce. The call is one of the most notorious in baseball history, and while a petition was made to overturn the call and restore Galarraga’s perfect game, MLB denied the petition and stood by the original call.
  • 2012: Third baseman Miguel Cabera becomes the first American Leaguer in 45 years to win the Triple Crown, and Detroit returns to the World Series. Despite a pitching staff that featured three Cy Young-winning pitchers (Justin Verlander, Max Scherzer, and Rick Porcello), the Tigers couldn’t keep up with the San Francisco Giants, who would sweep Detroit while outscoring the Tigers 16-6 over four games. This is the most recent sweep in World Series history.
