Artie Lewicki gets the start for the Tigers tonight. He is making just his third start of the year, but has 10 relief appearances as well. Lewicki has an 0-2 record with a 4.76 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP. Lewicki has amassed 27 strikeouts and 11 walks over 34.0 innings of work.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox are just 2-7 in Lopez’ last nine road starts and 5-12 in their last 17 series openers.
The Tigers have won four of their last five at home, but are just 7-15 in their last 22 Monday games.
The Tigers have done well at home lately, but I like Chicago tonight. The White Sox have the better lineup and are coming in with the stronger pitcher tonight. Lopez has started three times against the Tigers and has a 2.25 ERA against them. Lewicki hasn’t looked good in his starting role.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox -105
