Detroit Tigers Team Futures Bets: 2021 Team & Player Props
Player Props & Futures
AL Rookie of the Year
- Matt Manning (+3000) (Unibet)
Manning is one of the top pitching prospects in baseball, ranking 25th on MLB.com’s Top 100 prospects list. While he’s not going to make the big league team out of Spring Training, he could make a significant impact once he’s called up. Manning is currently generating some buzz in camp after introducing a new curveball. He’s also made some changes to his mechanics. This is a pitcher with high-90s velocity and four pitches in his arsenal.
While this is clearly a longshot bet, it’s worth taking a look given the high payout and weak Tigers’ rotation. This is a team with veterans like Julio Teheran and Jose Ureña slated as number four and five starters. There’s an opportunity for Manning to come up in May or June and cement his place in this rotation. If his new pitch and mechanics can help him reach the next level, there’s a chance for this bet to hit. You could do worse at 30-to-1 odds.
