BETTING TRENDS

Detroit Tugers are 4-2 SU in their last 6 games on the road.

Detroit Tigers are 4-15 SU in their last 19 games when playing on the road against Chi White Sox.

The total has gone OVER in 4 of Chi White Sox's last 6 games.

Chi White Sox are 2-7 SU in their last 9 games at home.

Prediction

The Tigers got something going on as they have won straight games and beat the White Sox with their best pitcher on the mound. The White Sox couldn't do much against Brieske and the Tigers bullpen as they scored only run in the 9th inning. Giolito will get the ball for this game who has been getting better lately allowing only 3 runs in 12 innings. On the other hand Skubal has struggled lately allowing 14 runs in his last 14 innings pitched. Expect the White Sox to bounce back and get this win.

PICK:  White Sox -1.5 (+125)
