Twins bounce back
The Twins bounced back on Tuesday by picking up a 5-2 win at Chicago for their sixth win in eight games. Minnesota is now 60-65 overall and 22-39 on the road. The Twins are scoring 4.51 runs per game this year while allowing 4.68 per contest.
Kyle Gibson will get the start for the Twins on Wednesday afternoon. He is 7-9 through 25 starts and has a 3.51 ERA and a 1.26 WHIP. Gibson has pitched 154.0 innings this year and has 144 strikeouts with 61 walks.
White Sox stumble
The White Sox suffered a 5-2 loss on Tuesday, but they have still won five of their last seven games. Chicago is now 47-78 overall and 24-40 at home. The White Sox are putting up 4.12 runs per game this year while allowing 5.34 per contest.
Carlos Rodon gets the start for the White Sox today. He is 4-3 through 12 starts this season and has a 2.69 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP. Rodon has 64 strikeouts with 29 walks over 80.1 innings of work.
MLB Betting Trends
The Twins are 20-6 in Gibson’s last 26 road starts against a team with a losing record. They are also 12-5 in his last 17 starts with four days of a rest.
The White Sox are just 4-10 in their last 14 home games, but 7-3 in Rodon’s last 10 home starts.
Both pitchers have been pretty steady for their current team. However, Gibson has struggled with the White Sox this year. He has a 5.27 ERA against Chicago over two starts against the Sox. Rodon has yet to face the Twins this year, but he has been stellar at home. He has five starts at home and has a 1.50 ERA. I think Rodon will continue his strong work at home and eat up this Minnesota lineup.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox -105
