White Sox playing well
Chicago is coming off a 2-0 win over Cleveland at home on Sunday. The White Sox have won six of their last seven games coming into today. Chicago is 29-30 on the season, 12-16 on the road and 31-27 with the under. Reynaldo Lopez takes the mound for Chicago today. He is 3-5 on the season with a 6.20 ERA.
The White Sox are putting up 4.27 runs per game while hitting .252 at the plate. The Sox have a 4.87 team ERA and a 1.43 team WHIP. Yoan Moncada is questionable to suit up today due to a leg injury. Moncada has 12 doubles, 10 home runs and 35 RBI. Jose Abreu is leading the team with 15 doubles, 15 home runs and 50 RBI.
Nationals heating up
Washington is coming off a 4-1 win at Cincinnati on Sunday. The Nationals have won four of their last five and seven of their last nine. Washington is 26-33 on the season, 13-15 at home and 30-25 with the over. Stephen Strasburg is getting the start today. He is 5-3 on the season with a 3.19 ERA.
The Nationals are putting up 4.71 runs per game on offense this season while hitting .250 as a team. On the mound, Washington has a 4.79 team ERA and a 1.37 team WHIP. Anthony Rendon is leading the team with 18 doubles, 10 home runs and 35 RBI. Juan Soto is adding 12 doubles, 10 home runs and 38 RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox are 7-3 in their last 10 against a losing team, but just 17-35 in their last 52 interleague games.
The Nationals are 11-5 in their last 16 games against AL Central opponents, but 8-20 in their last 28 games following a win.
Strasburg has been pitching pretty well, but he hasn’t been getting a ton of wins because Washington hasn’t been great with run support. Lopez has struggled in his last two outings, giving up 13 earned runs over 9.1 innings. I think Chicago is going to struggle with Strasburg and the Washington offense should be able to jump out quickly on Lopez. The straight up money line doesn’t have much value, so go with the Nationals to win by multiple runs tonight.
MLB Prediction: Washington Nationals -1.5 (-125)
