White Sox split first two
The White Sox have split the first two games in this series, suffering a 5-3 loss in the opener while picking up a 12-8 win on Tuesday night. Chicago is 30-55 overall and 14-28 on the road this season. Chicago is putting up 4.01 runs per game on offense this season while allowing 5.27 per contest.
Dylan Covey is getting the start for the White Sox this evening. He has started nine games this season and has a 3-3 record with a 4.82 ERA and a 1.59 WHIP. Covey has pitched a total of 46.2 innings this year and has 36 strikeouts and 23 walks.
Reds win streak stops
The Reds had their 3-game win streak come to an end on Tuesday in the 12-8 loss to the White Sox. Cincy is now 37-49 overall and 20-26 at home. The Reds are putting up 4.65 runs per game this season while allowing 5.07 per contest.
Sal Romano gets the start for the Reds this evening. He has started 17 games this year and has a 4-8 record with a 5.30 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. Romano has pitched a total of 90.0 innings and has 67 strikeouts with 38 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox are just 1-11 in Covey’s last 12 road starts and 6-20 in their last 26 interleague road games.
The Reds have won six of their last seven against AL Central opponents and 10 of their last 13 home games.
The White Sox may have gotten a win on Tuesday, but Covey has been really struggling lately by allowing at least 4 runs in four straight outings. Romano doesn’t have good numbers, but he has held opponents to two runs or less in three of his last four starts. I think Romano can have another good showing against Chicago today and lead the Reds to a win.
The Pick: Cincinnati Reds -170
