MLB Betting Trends
Chicago has lost four straight divisional games and six of their last eight series openers. The White Sox are also 18-45 in their last 63 road games.
Minnesota has won six of its last eight at home and nine of its last 13 division games. However, they are 7-19 in their last 26 games following a day off.
Minnesota is coming off three straight wins over the Indians to build some momentum coming into this series with the White Sox. While Chicago may have the better option on the mound, I like Minnesota to continue to play well at home. They have dominated this series and are the better team.
The Pick: Minnesota Twins -160
