The Chicago White Sox and Detroit Tigers meet Friday in MLB action atComerica Park. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.
Chicago White Sox Betting Preview
The Chicago White Sox have scored 12 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 6 of their last 10 games. The White Sox have won 7 straight games when scoring 4 or more runs. Luis Robert Jr. leads the White Sox with 50 hits and 29 RBI, while Andrew Benintendi and Andrew Vaughn have combined for 93 hits and 43 RBI. Lance Lynn gets the ball, and he is 3-5 with a 6.28 ERA and 67 strikeouts this season. Lynn is 7-3 with a 3.39 ERA and 70 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.
Detroit Tigers Betting Preview
The Detroit Tigers have scored 14 runs in their last 3 games and 4 or more runs in 7 of their last 10 games. The Tigers have won 8 of their last 9 games when scoring 4 or more runs. Riley Greene leads the Tigers with 55 hits and 18 RBI, while Spencer Torkelson and Javier Baez have combined for 86 hits and 47 RBI. Joey Wentz gets the ball, and he is 1-4 with a 7.45 ERA and 31 strikeouts this season. This will be Wentz’s first career game against the White Sox.
White Sox are 5-0 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series and 2-6 in their last 8 Friday games. The Tigers are 39-82 in their last 121 Friday games and 0-5 in their last 5 during game 2 of a series. The under is 7-0 in White Sox last 7 overall. The over is 5-2 in Tigers last 7 overall. The White Sox are 7-1 in the last 8 meetings in Detroit and 44-19 in the last 63 meetings.
This total is rather low when you consider the two pitchers on the mound. Lance Lynn has a 6.28 ERA and 1.47 WHIP through 57 innings, while Joey Wentz has an ERA over 7 and a 1.68 WHIP through 38 innings. Two pitchers in rough shape and two offenses that have been hot over the last two weeks. More than reasonable total. Give me the over in this spot.
