The struggling Chicago White Sox, with a record of 3-15, are determined to turn things around and secure a win against the Philadelphia Phillies. Despite their recent struggles, the White Sox have shown flashes of potential and will look to capitalize on any opportunities.

Pitching Analysis:

Garrett Crochet takes the mound for the White Sox. Despite his 1-2 record, Crochet has displayed promise with a 3.57 ERA. His ability to keep hitters off balance and generate strikeouts will be crucial for the White Sox to keep the Phillies' offense in check.

Pitching Analysis:

Spencer Turnbull gets the start for the Phillies. With an impressive 1-0 record and a stellar 1.80 ERA, Turnbull has been a reliable presence on the mound. His ability to command the strike zone and induce ground balls will be key in neutralizing the White Sox's offense.

Team ML Total Spread

PHI (11-8) -165 u8.5 (-130) -1.5 (+125)

 

Prediction:

In this matchup, we predict the under of 8.5 runs to be the pick. Here's why:

  • Both starting pitchers, Garrett Crochet for the White Sox and Spencer Turnbull for the Phillies, have been solid on the mound. Crochet boasts a respectable 3.57 ERA, while Turnbull has been even more impressive with a 1.80 ERA. Their ability to keep opposing hitters at bay suggests a low-scoring affair.
  • Considering the strong performances of both pitchers and the recent struggles of both teams' offenses, it's likely that runs will be hard to come by in this game. With the total set at 8.5 runs, the under appears to be the safer bet.
  • Expect a pitcher's duel with limited scoring opportunities, resulting in the under hitting by the end of the game.

Pick: Under 8.5 runs
