Twins seek series win

The Twins are looking to win a four-game series today after they have won the last two nights against the White Sox. They are now 12-17 on the season and 5-10 on the road. Minnesota is scoring 4.18 runs per game this year while allowing 5.39 per contest.

Kyle Gibson gets the start for the Twins this afternoon. Gibson has started six games this season and has a 1-1 record. Through 32 innings, Gibson has 36 strikeouts with 16 walks, a 1.28 WHIP and a 3.38 ERA.

White Sox in a major slump

Chicago has lost two straight and six of their last seven games coming into today’s series finale. The Sox are now 9-22 on the year and 3-12 at home. Chicago is averaging 3.93 runs per game this season while giving up 5.43 per contest.

James Shields gets the start for the White Sox today. He is 1-3 through six starts and seven appearances. Shields has pitched 35.1 innings this season and has a 5.35 ERA and a 1.47 WHIP. He has 19 strikeouts with 17 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are just 2-8 in their last 10 road games. However, they are 11-3 in Gibson’s last 14 starts and 18-3 in his last 21 road starts against a team with a losing record.

Chicago

The White Sox have dropped four straight Sunday games and they are just 1-4 in Shields’ last five starts. They also are 3-8 in their last 11 home games against a right-handed starter.

Prediction:

The Twins seem to finally have a little momentum, granted its against a poor Chicago team. I think Gibson will build on it today as he has had a very competitive ERA this season. Shields struggles with putting on too many baserunners and I think that will lead to the White Sox’ demise today.

 

The Pick: Minnesota Twins -145
