White Sox skidding again

The White Sox had been playing well for a time, but have now lost five straight and scored three runs or less in all five losses. The White Sox are 56-87 overall and 28-40 on the road. Chicago is putting up 4.13 runs per game on offense while giving up 5.22 per contest.

Lucas Giolito gets the start for the White Sox on Monday night. He has started 28 games this year and has a 10-10 record with a 5.85 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP. Giolito has 114 strikeouts and 79 walks over 152.1 innings of work.

Royals lose another series

The Royals are coming off a series loss this weekend to the Twins in Minnesota. They have lost four of their last five games. Kansas City is 47-95 overall and 25-45 at home. The Royals are putting up 3.81 runs per game on offense while allowing 5.25 per contest.

Jakob Junis gets the start for the Royals tonight. He has started 26 games this year and has an 8-12 record with a 4.32 ERA and a 1.25 WHIP. Junis has 145 strikeouts and 40 walks over 154.0 innings of work.

MLB Betting Trends

Chicago

The White Sox have won five of their last six road games and 7-3 in Giolito’s last 10 starts.

Kansas City

The Royals have won five straight road games, but they are just 4-12 in Junis’ last 16 starts.

Prediction:

Chicago has been struggling but Giolito has pitched well against the Royals this year. He has a 2-0 record through three starts with a 2.50 ERA. Junis has struggled against the White Sox this year, posting a 6.48 ERA through three starts. The White Sox have the ability to hit the ball and should against a poor pitcher. Giolito has been improving through the year, but still has some walk issues. I still think he pitches well enough to lead Chicago to the win.

 

The Pick: Chicago White Sox +110
