James Cook: Detroit can do better than odds

Las Vegas' over/under for Tigers wins this season is 83.

That's just one less than 84, the last year in which Detroit won the World Series.

And only two more than last year.

So do I think the Tigers will be better than that? Very likely.

Am I putting money on it? Not likely.

Predicted finish: 85-77.
