White Sox bounce back
The White Sox ended a five-game losing streak to the Tigers on Saturday with an 8-4 win in Detroit to even up this weekend series. Chicago is now 16-33 overall and 8-15 on the road. Chicago is averaging 3.94 runs per game this season while allowing 5.44 runs per contest.
James Shields gets the start for the White Sox on Sunday. He has started 11 games this year and has a 1-4 record with a 4.62 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP. Shields has pitched a total of 62.1 innings this season and has 41 strikeouts with 27 walks.
Tigers unable to win three straight
After wins over the Twins and White Sox in their last two games, the Tigers dropped Saturday afternoon’s clash with the White Sox. Detroit is now 22-29 overall and 13-11 at home. The Tigers are putting up 4.20 runs per game this year while giving up 4.64 runs per contest.
Blaine Hardy gets the start for the White Sox on Sunday. Hardy has started two games this year and appeared in six altogether. He has a 3.46 ERA with a 1.46 WHIP. Hardy has pitched a total of 13 innings and has 11 strikeouts with three walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox are 6-2 in Shields’ last eight starts when on four days of rest and 6-2 in his last eight starts against a losing team.
The Tigers are 18-40 in their last 58 divisional games and 11-25 in their last 36 home games against a right-handed starter.
The Tigers have an unsure pitcher on the mound in Hardy. He hasn’t lasted very long in his starts and will be passing the ball on to a really poor bullpen. Shields isn’t great either, but I trust him more than Hardy in this instance. The White Sox have had a little success lately and I think they can find a way to complete this series victory.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox +100
