White Sox lose two straight

The White Sox seemed to have something going, but have dropped games to the Orioles and Tigers the last two nights. Chicago is now 15-33 overall and 7-15 on the road. Chicago is averaging 3.94 runs per game this season while allowing 5.44 runs per contest.

Hector Santiago will get the start for the White Sox today. He has appeared in 13 games this season, starting four of them. He carries an 0-2 record with a 5.17 ERA and a 1.51 WHIP. Santiago has 34 strikeouts with 21 walks over 38.1 innings of action.

Tigers string wins together

The Tigers snapped a five-game losing streak on Wednesday and now have won two straight with a 5-4 victory on Friday. Detroit is now 22-28 overall and 13-10 at home. The Tigers are putting up 4.20 runs per game this year while giving up 4.64 runs per contest.

The Tigers have Francisco Liriano on the mound this afternoon. He has a 3-1 record this season with a 3.42 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over nine starts. Liriano has pitched a total of 52.2 innings this season and has 37 strikeouts with 26 walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The White Sox are just 6-20 in Santiago’s last 26 starts and they are also just 17-41 in their last 58 road games. They also have lost four straight divisional games.

Detroit

The Tigers have won four of their last five home games and four of their last five home games against a left-handed starter. Detroit has also won six of its last eight Saturday games.

Prediction:

The Tigers rallied to beat the White Sox on Friday night and I think the matchup tonight should go pretty well. Detroit has the edge on the mound with Liriano, who is coming off 8 scoreless innings in his last start. He should be able to build on that against this average Chicago lineup. Detroit has been pretty comfortable at home as of late and I like them to beat this poor team.

 

The Pick: Detroit Tigers -135
