MLB Betting Trends
The Twins have lost three straight Game 3’s of a series, but are 16-5 in their last 21 Saturday games.
The White Sox are just 3-13 in their last 16 games on grass and 2-9 in their last 11 games following a loss.
Nova is coming off a surprising complete-game win over the Marlins last week, but he hasn’t been able to produce a lot of great results this year. He gave up four runs in six innings against the Twins earlier this year and has an ERA over 6.00 at home this season. Perez has had some shaky starts as well as of late, but he faces a struggling Chicago lineup tonight. Perez hasn’t faced the Sox this year, but this could be just what he needs to get himself on track.
