Twins drop another
The Minnesota Twins fell 6-1 to the White Sox on Wednesday to drop the first two games of the series and lose their fifth out of six games. Minnesota is now 34-42 overall and 14-22 on the road. The Twins are putting up 4.20 runs per game while allowing 4.47 per contest.
Jake Odorizzi gets the start for the Twins on Thursday. He is 3-5 on the season through 16 starts and has a 4.97 ERA with a 1.47 WHIP. Odorizzi has pitched a total of 79.2 innings and has 80 strikeouts with 36 walks.
White Sox seek sweep
The White Sox look for a rare sweep today as they have now won four of their last five games. Chicago sits 28-51 overall and 16-26 at home. The White Sox are scoring only 3.87 runs per game this season while allowing 5.17 per contest.
Lucas Giolito gets the start for the White Sox on Thursday. He has a 5-7 record through 15 starts with a 7.01 ERA and 1.61 WHIP. Giolito has pitched 78.1 innings and has 48 strikeouts with 47 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 4-11 in their last 15 road games and 3-7 in their last 10 Game 3’s of a series. They are also 1-6 in their last seven Thursday games.
The White Sox are just 2-6 in Giolito’s last eight home starts, but they have won his last six starts in Game 3 of a series.
Both pitchers don’t inspire confidence today. Odorizzi has given up 10 runs over his last 6.2 innings of work. Giolito has given up nine over his last 12.1. However, Chicago has the momentum from the first two games of the series. The Twins haven’t been able to produce at the plate, scoring five runs in two games. Chicago has put up 14 in the two games. I think the Sox keep hitting and get the win.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox +120
