White Sox vs. Twins Prediction

I’m on the Twins -1.5 in this game. I’ll be perfectly honest, I haven’t been on the Twins much this season, but as bad as they’ve been in spots, especially when it comes to striking out at the plate, the White Sox offense has been practically non-existent. That’s not going to work when you look at Michael Soroka’s stat lines this season, as he’s been getting hit hard early and often this year and has been prone to allowing four or more runs in his starts which doesn’t bode well for a White Sox team that struggles to plate three runs at the best of times. Give me Minnesota -1.5 in this one.
