Rangers lose rubber match

After splitting the first two games in the series, the White Sox took Saturday’s game 5-3. Texas is now 18-29 overall and 11-13 on the road. The Rangers are putting up 4.13 runs per game this season and allowing 5.28 per contest.

Mike Minor is getting the start for the Rangers this afternoon. He is 3-2 through eight starts with a 5.61 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. Minor has pitched 43.1 innings this season with 37 strikeouts and 11 walks.

White Sox finding some winning

The White Sox have managed to go 3-3 overs its last six games thanks to Saturday’s victory. Chicago is now 12-30 overall and 5-16 at home. The White Sox are putting up 3.85 runs per game this season while allowing 5.80 per contest on defense.

Reynaldo Lopez gets the start for the White Sox this afternoon. He has started eight games this year and has a 0-3 record with a 3.50 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. Lopez has pitched 46.1 innings this year and has 31 strikeouts with 21 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Texas

The Rangers have lost 16 of their last 21 Sunday games and they have also dropped eight of their last 10 Game 4’s in a series.

Chicago

The White Sox have won five of Lopez’ last seven starts against a losing team. They also have won his last four starts on four days of rest.

Prediction:

The White Sox have managed a few wins this weekend and I think they have the pitching matchup edge today as well. Lopez has been solid on the mound for Chicago this year, but he hasn’t gotten much run support. I think the run support can come today against Minor, who has been giving up plenty.

 

The Pick: Chicago White Sox +100
