White Sox get pounded
After taking the first two games of this series, the White Sox went back to losing on Wednesday by falling 11-3. Chicago is now 36-65 overall with a 17-36 record on the road. The Sox are putting up just 4.00 runs per game on the year while allowing 5.32 per contest.
Dylan Covey gets a start for the White Sox this afternoon. He has started 12 games this season and has a 4-5 record with a 4.95 ERA and a 1.49 WHIP. Covey has pitched 63.2 innings this year and has 48 strikeouts and 28 walks.
Angels bounce back
Los Angeles won for just the second time in seven games on Wednesday with the 11-3 victory. They are 51-52 overall now with a 26-27 record at home. Los Angeles is scoring 4.43 runs per game this year to lead the team while allowing 4.16 per contest.
Nick Tropeano gets the start for the Angels on Thursday. He is making his 12th start of the season today and he comes in with a 3-5 record, a 4.58 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP. Tropeano has 49 strikeouts and 24 walks over 59.0 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have won their last four games after a loss and their last six against a right-handed starter.
The Angels are just 1-4 in their last five against AL Central opponents and they have lost four straight following a win.
Covey is coming off 8.1 shutout innings against the Mariners, but prior to that he had allowed 29 runs over his previous five starts combined. I would think he is more likely to go back to that form instead of what he did against Seattle. Tropeano has been a little more consistent, but doesn’t get terribly deep into games. I think Los Angeles should be able to grind out the win and get back to .500.
The Pick: Los Angeles Angels -180
