Twins struggling for momentum
The Minnesota Twins ended a three-game losing streak on Sunday with a 2-0 win at home over the Rangers. The Twins are 5-5 in their last 10 games. Minnesota is now 34-40 overall and 14-20 on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.20 runs per game while allowing 4.42 per contest.
Lance Lynn gets the start for the Twins this evening. He has started 14 games this season and has a 5-5 record with a 4.64 ERA and a 1.60 WHIP. Lynn has pitched a total of 73.2 innings and has 73 strikeouts with 46 walks.
White Sox split series
The White Sox are coming off a four-game split with the Athletics this past weekend, but they are still just 2-8 in their last 10 games. Chicago is now 26-51 overall and 14-26 at home. The White Sox are scoring only 3.82 runs per game this season while allowing 5.18 per contest.
Reynaldo Lopez takes the mound for the White Sox this evening. He has started 15 games in 2018 and has a 3.59 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP while carrying a 2-5 record. Lopez has pitched a total of 87.2 innings and has 63 strikeouts with 38 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 9-3 in their last 12 games against the White Sox and 11-5 in their last 16 games at Chicago. They are also 4-1 in Lynn’s last five starts against AL Central opponents.
The White Sox are just 18-37 in their last 55 division games and 2-6 in their last eight at home.
Neither team has much to be excited about, but I feel Minnesota is the better overall team and has at least shown some flashes of consistency. The Twins also have a strong history against the White Sox. I don’t think Lopez is going to have enough to dominate this game and lead Chicago to a victory.
The Pick: Minnesota Twins -115
