White Sox actually winning
The White Sox have not had a great year, but they have won four of their last six after winning series against the Rangers and Orioles. Chicago is now 15-32 overall and 7-14 on the road. Chicago is averaging 3.94 runs per game this season while allowing 5.45 runs per contest.
Reynaldo Lopez gets the start for the White Sox this evening. He is 1-3 through his first nine starts. He has a 2.98 ERA this season with a 1.16 WHIP. Lopez has pitched a total of 54.1 innings and has 39 strikeouts with 23 walks.
Tigers snap losing streak
The Tigers put an end to their five-game losing streak on Wednesday with a 4-1 win at Minnesota. Detroit is now 21-28 overall and 12-10 at home. The Tigers are putting up 4.18 runs per game this year while giving up 4.65 runs per contest.
Mike Fiers gets the start for the Tigers this evening. He is 4-3 through eight starts with a 4.57 ERA and a 1.22 WHIP. Fiers has pitched a total of 43.1 innings and has 28 strikeouts and seven walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have lost five of their last six Friday games and five of their last six divisional games.
The Tigers are just 7-21 in their last 28 Friday games. Detroit has also lost 11 of its last 36 series openers. However, they have won six of their last eight home games.
Neither team has been able to sustain much success this season, but I think Chicago is the play tonight. Lopez already pitched seven scoreless against the Tigers this year and Chicago actually comes into tonight with some momentum. If Lopez can give them another strong start, Chicago should be able to take care of business.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox +100
