Sox split with Twins
The White Sox split their doubleheader with Minnesota on Tuesday, losing the opener 4-2 before bouncing back with a 6-3 victory. Chicago now finds itself at 19-39 overall and 9-20 on the road. The White Sox are putting up 3.98 runs per game while allowing 5.33 per contest.
Hector Santiago is taking the mound for the White Sox this evening. He has pitched in 16 games this year, starting six of them. He has a 1-2 record with a 5.10 ERA and 1.62 WHIP. Santiago has 41 strikeouts and 27 walks over 47.2 innings.
Twins win streak snapped
The Twins were on a 4-game winning streak following the 4-2 win in the doubleheader opener, but that was snapped in the loss in the nightcap. Minnesota is now 26-31 overall with a 15-14 record at home. The Twins are scoring 4.32 runs per contest while allowing 4.53 per game.
Jake Odorizzi gets the start for the Twins on Wednesday. He has a 3-2 record through 12 starts to go along with a 4.14 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP. Odorizzi has pitched 63.0 innings this season and has 61 strikeouts with 26 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox are 19-46 in their last 65 games on the road. They have lost 20 of Santiago’s last 28 starts.
The Twins have won 12 of their last 15 home games against a left-handed starter and they have won four of their last five division games.
The Twins have the edge at the plate and on the mound today. Odorizzi has been much more reliable than Santiago this season. Santiago also isn’t accustomed to starting much, so he isn’t likely to get deep into games. Minnesota has the better hitting as well. I like the Twins to cruise past the White Sox.
The Pick: Minnesota Twins -175
