MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox are 8-18 in their last 26 games overall. Chicago is 1-4 in its last five games versus the AL Central.
The Tigers are 10-43 in their last 53 games. Detroit is 2-11 in its last 13 games versus a team with a losing record.
Nova has pitched very well lately and the White Sox hit lefties pretty well. I'm actually surprised Chicago isn't a slightly bigger favorite. Take advantage.
