Twins drop opener
The Minnesota Twins lost the series opener on Tuesday night, 8-4 for their fourth loss in five games. Minnesota is now 34-41 overall and 14-21 on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.20 runs per game while allowing 4.47 per contest.
Kyle Gibson is on the mound for the Twins this evening. He has started 15 games this season and has a 2-5 record with a 3.25 ERA and a 1.21 WHIP. Gibson has pitched a total of 88.2 innings and has 86 strikeouts with 39 walks.
White Sox grab another victory
The White Sox earned an 8-4 win on Tuesday for their third win in four games. Chicago is now 27-51 overall and 15-26 at home. The White Sox are scoring only 3.87 runs per game this season while allowing 5.17 per contest.
James Shields gets the start for the White Sox this evening. He is 2-9 through 16 starts this year and has a 4.59 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP. Shields has pitched 100.0 inning sin 2018 and he has 68 strikeouts with 39 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are just 4-10 in their last 14 road games and 1-4 in their last five against a right-handed starter. They are also 2-5 in Gibson’s last seven starts.
The White Sox are just 3-9 in their last 12 games following a win and 8-17 in Shields’ last 25 starts against a losing team.
Gibson has had one of his better seasons in some time this year, but run support hasn’t been something that has been common for him. I think that changes today. Shields hasn’t been very good in most of his starts this year and struggles to get swings and misses. I look for Minnesota to see a scoring surge today to give Gibson the help he needs for a victory.
The Pick: Minnesota Twins -145
