Offensively, Jose Abreu leads the White Sox with 118 hits and 67 RBI while Yolmer Sanchez and Tim Anderson have combined for 206 hits and 92 RBI. Reynaldo Lopez gets the ball, and he is 4-9 with a 4.30 ERA and 96 strikeouts this season. Lopez is 1-1 with a 3.00 ERA and 12 strikeouts in his career against the Tigers.

The White Sox are 39-83 in their last 122 road games, 1-6 in their last 7 Monday games and 1-5 in Lopezs last 6 starts. The Tigers are 18-41 in their last 59 during game 1 of a series, 7-15 in their last 22 Monday games and 12-32 in their last 44 overall. The White Sox are 21-51 in the last 72 meetings in Detroit, 0-4 in the last 4 meetings and the under is 5-2-1 in the last 8 meetings.
Backing either one of these teams is risky business, as neither side has been that much profitable. The one edge you have here is that the Tigers are at home, and they've beaten up on the White Sox in past meetings. In fact, the Tigers have won nine of the last 10 games against the White Sox, which includes eight wins this season. Give me the Tigers and the cheaper price.
