According to oddsmakers at YouWager, Chicago is favored at home today, as the White Sox are being given odds of -150 to win this afternoon. The Tigers are getting a money line of +125 to win. The over/under total is currently listed at 8.5 runs.
The pitching matchup today has Reynaldo Lopez on the mound for the White Sox to face Mike Fiers of the Tigers. Lopez took a no-decision in his first start. He pitched six innings at Toronto and allowed just one run and two hits. Fiers is making his first start this season. He pitched in 29 games last year with the Astros and was 8-10 with a 5.22 ERA and 1.43 WHIP. He had 146 strikeouts with 62 walks.
PUBLIC BETTING INFORMATION
The public is backing Chicago today. The White Sox are currently getting 59 percent of the wagers for this game as the favorite against Detroit.
Neither team has any new players on the injury report for today’s game.
Detroit has won the first two games in the series. The Tigers earned a 9-7 win on Thursday and a 6-1 win on Saturday. Michael Fulmer pitched 5.1 innings on Saturday, allowing six hits and no runs to pick up the win for the Tigers. Lucas Giolito took the loss for Chicago, allowing five runs and four hits over 5.2 innings.
Miguel Cabrera drove in three runs to lead Detroit in the victory while Jeimer Candelario had two hits for the Tigers. Avisail Garcia drove in the lone run for the White Sox in the loss.
Detroit has won the first two games of the series, but I like Chicago today. Fiers struggled last year and is coming off an injury to get his first start today. I don’t suspect he will be very crisp and is up against a respectable lineup. I think Chicago will start fast and hold on from there.
