Michael Fulmer makes the start for the Tigers on Monday. He is 3-10 through 21 starts this year and carries a 4.71 ERA with a 1.32 WHIP. Fulmer has 100 strikeouts and 39 walks over 120.1 innings of work.
White Sox split with Red Sox
The White Sox had a promising split with the Red Sox this weekend and they have won seven of their last 10 coming into this game. Chicago is now 55-82 overall and 27-42 at home. The White Sox are scoring 4.18 runs per game this year while allowing 5.21 per contest.
Reynaldo Lopez will make the start for Chicago on Monday. He is 5-9 through 27 starts this year and has a 4.51 ERA with a 1.36 WHIP. Lopez has 116 strikeouts and 66 walks over 155.2 innings of work this year.
MLB Betting Trends
The Tigers have lost Fulmer’s last five Monday starts, but they have won their last six games in Chicago.
The White Sox have won four of their last five division games and five of their last seven against a right-handed starter.
Fulmer couldn’t be much more disappointing this season. Expected to be an ace, he has been anything but in 2018. On the road, Fulmer has been even worse. He carries a 6.06 ERA away from Detroit and he is facing a Chicago team that has been heating up at the plate as they have been getting healthier. Lopez has been pretty solid against Detroit, posting a 2.32 ERA over five starts against the Tigers this year.
The Pick: Chicago White Sox -115
