White Sox fall on the road
The White Sox dropped Friday’s opener on the road, 3-1, for their sixth consecutive loss on the road. They are 14-34 on the road this season with a 33-63 overall record. The White Sox are putting up 4.01 runs per game this season while allowing 5.34 per contest.
Dylan Covey gets the start for the White Sox this evening. He has made 11 starts this season and he has a 3-5 record with a 5.69 ERA and a 1.64 WHIP. Covey has pitched a total of 55.1 innings this year and has 43 strikeouts with 26 walks.
Mariners end skid
The Mariners put an end to a 4-game losing streak on Friday night with the 3-1 win over the White Sox. Seattle is now 59-39 overall and 32-17 at home. The Mariners are putting up 4.23 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.23 per contest.
Felix Hernandez gets the start for the Mariners on Saturday night. He is making his 20th start of the season and has an 8-7 record with a 5.13 ERA and a 1.37 WHIP. King Felix has pitched a total of 105.1 innings this year and has 87 strikeouts with 36 walks.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have dropped 20 of their last 28 Saturday games and have lost five straight to AL West opponents.
The Mariners have won 23 of their last 30 at home and 20 of their last 26 against AL Central opponents. They have also won Hernandez’ last seven starts against the AL Central.
King Felix hasn’t been great this year and he has allowed three runs in each of his last three starts. However, Covey has given up four runs or more in five straight starts and a total of 26 runs over those five starts. Chicago isn’t a team that hits too well on the road and I think Seattle will be able to bottle up those bats while scoring some runs on Covey and the Chicago bullpen.
The Pick: Seattle Mariners -200
