White Sox stay hot
The White Sox picked up a fourth straight win on Monday by upsetting the Yankees with a 6-2 victory. Chicago is 52-79 overall and 27-39 on the road. The Sox are putting up 4.19 runs per game on offense while allowing 5.24 per contest.
James Shields gets the start for the White Sox tonight. He is 5-15 through 27 starts on the year and carries a 4.59 ERA with a 1.29 WHIP. Shields has 132 strikeouts and 63 walks over 170.2 innings of work.
Yankees drop opener
The Yankees had their four-game win streak come to an end on Monday in the loss at home to the White Sox. New York is now 83-48 overall and 45-21 at home. The Yankees are scoring 5.20 runs per game on offense while allowing 4.02 per contest.
Lance Lynn gets the start for the Yankees tonight. He is making his 25th start of the year and sixth for the Yankees after being acquired by the Twins. Lynn has an 8-9 record this year with a 4.84 ERA and a 1.57 WHIP. Lynn has 133 strikeouts and 70 walks over 128.1 innings.
MLB Betting Trends
The White Sox have won six of their last eight against a starter with a WHIP over 1.30, but they are just 6-23 in Shields’ last 29 road starts.
The Yankees are 13-3 in their last 16 games against a right-handed starter and 22-6 in their last 28 against AL Central opponents.
The Yankees couldn’t handle Reynaldo Lopez on Monday and it led to a loss. I think New York can definitely get to Shields today. While I see the White Sox getting to Lynn as well, I like the Yankees more in a shootout at home. New York has the better hitting on most nights and their bullpen is far superior to Chicago’s.
The Pick: New York Yankees -240
