White edged by Twins

The White Sox saw their 3-game win streak come to an end on Thursday, losing to the Twins 2-1 in 13 innings. Chicago is now 28-52 overall and 12-25 on the road. The White Sox are averaging 3.90 runs per game on offense while giving up 5.11 runs per contest.

Dylan Covey gets the start for the White Sox tonight. He has pitched in eight games this season and has a 3-2 record with a 3.45 ERA and a 1.42 WHIP. Covey has pitched a total of 44.1 innings and has 36 strikeouts with 20 walks.

Texas playing well

The Rangers have been playing quite well as of late, winning nine of their last 11 games coming into tonight. Texas is now 36-46 overall and 17-25 at home. The Rangers are putting up 4.38 runs per game this season while allowing 5.09 per contest.

Yovani Gallarado gets the start for the Rangers today. He has started two games since being traded from the Reds, but they haven’t been good. He has allowed nine runs over 10.1 innings with seven strikeouts and five walks.

MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The White Sox are just 5-11 in their last 16 Friday games and 22-51 in their last 73 road games. They are also 1-10 in Covey’s last 11 road starts.

Texas

Texas has won four of its last five at home and six of its last eight against right-handed starters. They are also 15-7 in their last 22 after a day off.

Prediction:

Covey has good numbers on the season, but has been on the decline over his last two starts. He has given up nine runs over his last nine innings. Gallardo hasn’t been good in his own right, but Texas has been hitting the ball well lately and I think he can settle in at home. Chicago isn’t a team to trust on the road, no matter if they have been playing well lately.

 

The Pick: Texas Rangers -140
