Minnesota Twins -220 / Chicago White Sox +200 O/U: 10.5
The Chicago White Sox and the Minnesota Twins will match up on the MLB circuit Saturday.
In the Friday opener of this set, the Twins put up a big 11-4 victory by scoring 10 runs in the first five innings.
For Saturday’s game, the White Sox will be bringing out Manny Banuelos in the start. With his 2-3 record and 7.26 ERA, Banuelos has amassed 32 strikeouts.
In the loss on Friday, the White Sox came up with nine hits but only scored in one inning. Yonder Alonso finished with one hit and two RBI, and Tim Anderson posted three hits with one run.
Over on the Twins’ side, they’re going with Kyle Gibson in the start on Saturday. Across his 50.1 innings and 4-2 mark this year, Gibson has a 4.47 ERA with 51 Ks and 13 BBs.
Minnesota logged 12 hits in the victory on Friday, and seven of them belonged to the combination of Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario, who combined for seven RBI and three runs as well.
The White Sox are 2-5 in their last seven in game two of a series and 2-6 in their last eight Saturday games. The over is 6-2 in Chicago’s last eight Saturday games as well.
Meanwhile, the Twins are 8-1 in their last nine Saturday games and 5-1 in their last six in game two of a series. Minnesota is 4-1 in Gibson’s last five Saturday starts and 9-3 in his last 12 starts.
Gibson had a nice run of starts going, with four outings allowing two earned or fewer, and a 3-1 record in those games. Since then across two starts, Gibson has given up seven earned in 11.2 innings on 15 hits. He’s 1-1 in those two.
Assuming the Twins can get Gibson four or five runs in support, I like him to come out and pitch well here, putting himself in position for a win. I’m going Minnesota.
