The White Sox are 14-3 in their last 17 in game one of a series and 3-7 in their last 10 Monday games. The under is 4-1 in Chicago’s last five Monday games as well.
Meanwhile, the Tigers are 17-37 in their last 54 Monday games and 50-108 in their last 158 versus the AL Central. Detroit is also 88-181 in their last 269 versus a team with a winning record.
PICK: I’m going to try Detroit here. Manning is coming off a start versus Chicago, putting up three earned on 5.0 innings from four hits and three walks. Manning has given up five earned over his last 14.0 innings total. As for Keuchel, he’s given up four earned on 17 hits in his last 11.0 innings, and had a run of 15 earned in 9.2 innings prior to that. I like Keuchel to pitch better here but I think the Tigers have a reasonable shot at a W.
