Twins on a skid
Minnesota is just 3-7 in its last 10 games, having lost two of three at home to the New York Yankees. The Twins are 61-40 on the season, 30-19 on the road and 50-45 with the over. Jose Berrios gets the start for the Twins this evening. He is 8-5 on the year with a 2.96 ERA.
The Twins are one of the top-hitting teams in the majors. They average 5.70 runs per game while batting .272 as a squad. They also have a league-high 194 home runs. The pitching staff has a 4.12 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP. Eddie Rosario is leading the team with 15 doubles, 22 home runs and 68 RBI. Max Kepler has added 23 doubles, 25 home runs and 68 RBI.
White Sox fall to Marlins
Chicago dropped two of three at home to the Miami Marlins this week. The White Sox are also 3-7 in their last 10 games. Chicago is 45-54 overall, 26-22 at home and 49-47 with the under. Lucas Giolito is starting for the White Sox. He is 11-4 on the season with a 3.12 ERA.
The White Sox are averaging just 4.22 runs per game while batting .254 as a team. The Sox have a 5.02 team ERA with a 1.44 team WHIP. They rank last in the league in strikeouts with 772. Jose Abreu is leading the team with 22 doubles, 22 home runs and 72 RBI while Yoan Moncada is adding 19 doubles, 18 home runs and 56 RBI.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 4-1 in their last five series openers and 31-13 in their last 44 division games.
The White Sox are 6-1 in Giolito’s last seven home starts, but the Sox have lost nine of their last 10 games on grass.
Giolito has been a shining star for the White Sox, posting some very solid numbers. He threw five scoreless innings against the Twins earlier this year. However, Giolito doesn’t get much help from his hitters and bullpen. Berrios is a solid pitcher that the White Sox are likely to struggle with. In two starts against the Sox, Berrios has a 2.57 ERA with nine strikeouts and no walks. Minnesota has struggled as of late, but played some good teams. I think the Twins will get back on track against the struggling White Sox.
MLB Prediction: Minnesota Twins -155
